KXIP vs KKR Live Score

While Fulham can contemplate life in the top flight for the first time in four years, Aston Villa must spend another season in the netherworld of the Championship.

However, if the Midlands outfit were to secure promotion on Saturday they would need further additions to adequately equip themselves for the gruelling nature of the Premier League.

Bruce also has to deal with the future of this season's main loan players - Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone, Tottenham midfielder Josh Onomah, West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass and Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban.

Steve Bruce's Villa side were active throughout but failed to truly threaten a side which finished one place and five points above them in the final Championship table. No one wants to see the spectacle ruined.

He is a player of Premier League quality after some impressive showings for Saints, and he often grabbed any opportunities that came his way with both hands.

After the break, Fulham continued where they left off and Stefan Johansen got on the ball on the edge of the area but fired wide.

A couple of months ago, Jokanovic had insisted that dreams were to be had in the bedroom but he woke with his team triumphant and many topless at the end of Fulham's first game at the national stadium since 1975. "But let's not forget we are Aston Villa, a proud club, a big club".

"But my manager said he needed me so I just played. But now, I do believe they have enjoyed seeing what we have got at the moment".

It defeated Derby County in the playoff semifinal on a 2-1 aggregate and features the likes of US defender Tim Ream and rising teenage English fullback Ryan Sessegnon. "We know what is ahead of us". Fredericks and Jack Grealish came together by the touchline with the Villa playmaker ending up on the floor and earning a free-kick. Ryan Fredericks certainly seemed to let the occasion better of him when he stamped on Jack Grealish on the half-hour mark.

The Midlands club were trying to play everything through the talented Grealish and he had a chance early in the second half to level things up when he went past a couple of players and got into the box but his shot was straight at Fulham's keeper.

The former Watford boss, though, has admitted that he can not completely guarantee that the 18-year-old winger will be at Craven Cottage next season.
