Four seasons after going down to the English Championship, Cardiff City won its promotion back to the Premier League yesterday.

It joins ailing Carl Ikeme’s Wolverhampton Wanderers (relegated from EPL in 2012), who had won the 2017/18 Championship title ahead of the final fixtures of the regular season yesterday.

Fulham, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and Derby County all qualify for the playoffs that will determine the third team to be promoted to the topflight.
