Every season the race for the Premier League is full of drama, excitement and often tension. But this year, Fulham have pulled so far clear of the competition they have declared themselves winners with four games to spare.

The prize? A place in the Premier League for the 2022/23 season.

Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship game between Fulham and Preston North End.
