Top-flight loanees have played a major role in both teams' path to Wembley, and Al Hain-Cole expects the Rams' impressive Liverpool winger to star

Although Aston Villa and Derby County are competing for promotion to the top flight in Monday's Championship play-off final, there is Premier League quality already to be found in both teams' attacks.

Having attracted plenty of attention after scoring 26 goals in 39 matches en route to Wembley, Tammy Abraham will surely be playing in the top flight next season regardless of the result.

On target in both league encounters between the sides during the regular campaign, the on-loan Chelsea forward offers solid value at 7/2 (4.50) with William Hill to put his team on their way to promotion with the opener, as well as 6/5 (2.20) anytime odds.

Similarly, Frank Lampard's team has built their own promotion campaign around another Premier League loanee, with Liverpool youngster Harry Wilson topping their scoring charts with 16 league goals.

With six goals to his name in the previous 10 matches, the Welsh winger is an even more tempting prospect at 15/2 (8.50) first goalscorer and 11/4 (3.75) anytime odds.

On-loan Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has been equally instrumental in the Rams' promotion push with nine goals so far, and can be backed at a generous 10/3 (4.33) to strike once again here.

In contrast, Jack Marriott has worked his way up the non-league over the last few seasons, and is Derby's 2/1 (3.00) favourite to follow up his two-goal heroics in the semi-final win over Leeds with another goal.

Meanwhile, Jack Grealish has been linked with a move to several Premier League teams after establishing himself as a star player for Dean Smith's men, but is priced at 17/5 (4.40) to give himself the best chance of playing top-flight football for his hometown club with a big goal in the final.

Having scored three times over the two encounters between the sides during the regular season, Conor Hourihane is priced at 19/5 (4.80) to break double figures for the season with one last strike.
