Championship play-off final: Can you name past 10 clubs to win it?

Fulham defender Tim Ream says he and his teammates are ready to "prove ourselves" in the Premier League after beating Aston Villa 1-0 in the promotion playoff final at Wembley on Saturday.

In the opening stages this weekend, Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon played a delightful through ball for Tom Cairney, who was perfectly placed to receive it to slot past an onrushing Sam Johnstone on 23 minutes.

Sources have told ESPN FC that the Premier League would resist any such contractual arrangement, but Villa have been angered by what they view as a misrepresentation of what manager Steve Bruce had to say on the matter in a news conference on Thursday.

For some of Aston Villa's old stagers it was now or never.

Sometimes having players who have been there, done it and worn the t-shirt can be a positive thing, but in the first-half, Villa's 30-somethings just looked old and jaded. After representing his country at u21s level, Targett could even push himself into the reckoning for the senior team with regular Premier League game-time. I got a feeling that they wouldn't score and it would be our year.

However, two minutes later, Fulham were ahead.

Grealish fluffed his lines again early in the second half, heading over from a good position. "I am aching inside", he said afterwards.

Amidst Uncertainties, US-North Korea Singapore Meeting Not Canceled
Presidential spokesman Yoon Young-chan said Moon would reveal more details about the outcome of the meeting on Sunday morning. South Korea, a longtime US ally, was not notified ahead of time before Trump's letter canceling with Kim was made public.

Back up the other end, Aleksandar Mitrovic glanced a header wide of the far post but Villa were quickly back onto the offensive and Grealish came agonisingly close to scoring one of Wembley's great goals.

"We believe we can play this way, but we must know what characters and what players we need".

"I've been playing the whole season not fully fit".

Bruce insisted Villa remain in a position to recover from their disappointment and again challenge for promotion next season, despite what threatens to be a hard summer.

Odoi's challenge on him in the second half resulted in a second yellow. "We've been the best team in the league and although we didn't get automatic promotion, we blew teams away".

Villa centre-half James Chester was a constant rock at the back, revealing to Pulis that his former boss was wrong to sell him when the two were together at West Bromwich Albion.

"This is a really important victory for us".
