Barcelona are also said to be monitoring the teenager but with Sessegnon's assent to the summit of the sport all-but assured, teammate Ryan Fredericks wants attention to turn to matters at Wembley.

The task is quite simple for the two sides competing at Wembley Stadium on Saturday; win and you're back in the Premier League. They will do the same next season but they are not naive.

Slavisa Jokanovic's side played the last 20 minutes with 10 men after defender Denis Odoi was sent off for a studs-up lunge on Jack Grealish. "We've been the best team in the league and although we didn't get automatic promotion, we blew teams away". "I'm happy with what my team offered today and how we played our football".

Cairney added: "It feels like an out of body feeling". Before Cairney slotted home, time appeared to stand still as he readied himself to meet Sessegnon's cute, weighted ball.

Any worry that Fulham would buckle at the thought of the occasion or wilt under pressure evaporated.

Jokanovic had vowed to take advantage of Villa's veterans, labelling them "an old and exhausted team, they are going to show some weaknesses". "We must adapt ourselves; we know what is ahead of us".

'We've been with him in the last two years and not one of us have heard him talk about another club.

He explained: "A lot of work has gone in in 18 months". Between them, they gladly hoovered up danger and it was only Grealish, the dancing Villa playmaker who Fulham failed to mute. Second half we were much better and asked a few more questions, but to be brutally honest that wasn't hard.

While Fulham fans enjoyed an afternoon they'll never forget, there was one incident at half-time which summed up the state of modern football in many people's eyes.
