Fulham sealed the 2021/22 Championship title in style, smashing Luton Town 7-0 on Monday night.
Going into the game at Craven Cottage, Marco Silva’s side knew that only a win would make top spot mathematically certain – and they delivered.
The Cottagers have led the way since November and always seemed likely to get over the line despite a recent wobble.
Tom Cairney got Fulham off to a strong start on the half-hour mark, lashing home from the edge of the box after good work from Harry Wilson. Kenny Tete then doubled his side’s advantage just before half-time, driving an effort into the net from distance.
Eight minutes after the restart the Cottagers got a third, with Fabio Carvalho racing onto Wilson’s round-the-corner flick and finishing calmly.

Aleksandar Mitrovic then joined the party with his 42nd goal of the Championship season – a strike that saw him draw level with Guy Whittingham for the most goals scored in a second-tier campaign in England.
Soon after Bobby Cordova-Reid pounced to make it 5-0, and 11 minutes from time substitute Jean Michael Seri struck from range for his side’s sixth.
With the clock ticking down, Mitrovic then made sure he grabbed the headlines, scoring a second in second-half stoppage time to break that aforementioned scoring record.
Key to Fulham’s success this season has been the incredible goal-scoring antics of the Serbia international, but Liverpool loanee Wilson has caught the eye too, as has Carvalho – who is ironically set to join the Reds this summer.
With the title secured, Fulham will now turn their attentions to life back in the Premier League.
90min understands that the Cottagers will once again be backed heavily in the transfer market with Lazio’s midfield general Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers among the early targets.
