Fulham clinched the Championship style as they produced one of the high-scoring football scores of the weekend. Tom Cairney opened the scoring in the 29th minute before Kenny Tete doubled their advantage in the 39th minute. Fabio Carvalho got on the scoresheet in the 54th minute before Aleksandar Mitrovic scored his first in the 62nd minute. Bobby Reid and Jean Seri scored before Mitrovic scored his second in stoppage time.
Fulham manager Marco Silva: “They [the players] have been working really hard to achieve it. To do it the way we did it tonight was fantastic, it reflects our ferocity and everything we did this season. They should really celebrate it because they achieved something really important but the way they did, it was fantastic and I’m really proud of them. It’s been a fantastic season. We deserve it; we’ve been the most dominant team this season. The gap is getting bigger between the competitions [Championship and Premier League] but we’ve built a fantastic platform this season and we want to keep doing that. Of course, it’ll be tough [in the Premier League] but we have to be positive because we’ve done really well, we have good players, are a good club and we want to grow to prepare ourselves well for the future.”
Luton Town manager Nathan Jones: “Congratulations to them, they’ve won the league and they’re the best side in the league. We’re an aggressive side, we want to play in a certain way, but I’ve got nine first-team players out. Pace, power, and my front two were missing today. I couldn’t play Harry Cornick, who was on the bench, I couldn’t bring him on. We’re missing five midfield players, both wing-backs. It’s the equivalent of them having nine players out, including Mitrovic, and going to Man City – that’s the difference in what it is.”
