The tactical approach Fulham must take to beat Aston Villa in the play-off final

Fulham have gone one step further than last season with one match separating them from the Premier League.

Slavisa Jokanovic’s side have been exciting to watch over the past two seasons with their free-flowing creative play which has made them hard to stop, but last season ended in failure as Jaap Stam’s Reading beat them over two legs in the play-off semi-finals.

There were worries that this season would be the same after Derby won the first leg 1-0 and held them at 0-0 going into half-time at Craven Cottage. However, they turned it around with a strong second half display to win 2-0 with Ryan Sessegnon and Denis Odoi getting the goals.

Villa be a tough task, though, because they have some vastly experienced players who are used to any potential scenario that is thrown their way, but the Cottagers did finish higher in the table and should be seen as favourites going into this match.

Here are three things Fulham need to do to come away with a win…
