Wolves promoted to Premier League after six-year absence

Third-placed Fulham were held to a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage by Brentford which confirmed Wolves' promotion.

They've been out of the Premier League for six years however by no means seemed at risk of lacking out this time round.

The Midlanders have led by instance within the Championship this season regardless of irking rivals over their relationship with agent Jorge Mendes. Attention now turns to the Championship title, with Wolves nine points ahead of Cardiff City in second place.

"Congratulations to the best team but hope the league can be fair and equal to all 24 teams", protested Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani after his side were beaten 3-0 by Wolves last month.

Liverpool 3-0 Bournemouth: The trident delivers
Liverpool ran out comfortable winners against Bournemouth on Saturday as Mohamed Salah scored once again. Mohamed Salah provided two chances for a Liverpool opener in the first five minutes to no avail.

Wolves are only in action on Sunday against Birmingham City but, due to Fulham dropping points against Brentford, their promotion was secured.

On Wednesday night, Wolves defeated Derby County to move to within a win of promotion to the Premier League, something which will be achieved before kickoff on Sunday afternoon if Fulham fail to beat Brentford.

While the Blues have seen a recent upturn in fortunes under new boss Garry Monk, they could sit in the Championship's bottom three should they lose this weekend.
