OverviewA once regular top-flight fixture since 1949, Fulham and Aston Villa haven’t always been at the pinnacle. In fact, in the 1970s, they faced off for one season in the third tier of English football.
Having yo-yoed up and down in recent seasons, they’re now both back at the top table of the English game. Fulham enjoyed a 1-0 Championship play-off final win against Villa in 2018 but came down the following season as Villa went up. The Villains got their revenge early in the 2020/21 campaign with a 3-0 victory at Craven Cottage.
