ALEKSANDAR Mitrovic uncorked Fulham’s Championship title bubbly with a record-breaking strike.
Serbian hitman Mitro grabbed his 43nd of the campaign as in added time as Fulham enjoyed scored a magnificent seven on a night of celebration to mark their return to the Prem.
It was typical Mitrovic and trademark Fulham, a bulldozing run and finish after another flowing move that went through wizard Harry Wilson.
And it left lacklustre Luton on the ropes and begging for mercy – even though they can still guarantee a play-off spot and chance of that minimum £200m bounty by beating Reading at Kenilworth Road on Saturday.
Marco Silva’s men have been head and shoulders above the Championship rest since August – and this, their biggest home win of the season, showed exactly why.
Inspired by Wilson and Liverpool-bound Fabio Carvalho, they tore the Hatters to shreds.

Wilson set up the first, Tom Cairney thrashing home Fulham’s 100th goal of the season with a rising drive.
Number two came with a daisy-cutter from Kenny Tete into the bottom corner from 23 yards.
And with the Luton defence collapsing in front of emergency loan signing Matt Ingram in goal, the floodgates really opened after the break.
Carvalho claimed the third after a glorious move he started and finished – after smart play by Mitrovic and Wilson – by steering into the net from 16 yards.

Then, as so often this term, it was Mitrovic’s turn, taking the ball from Wilson and blasting through the Luton defence by sheer force of will before prodding home.
That took Mitrovic level with the second tier record set by Portsmouth’s Guy Whittingham in 1992-93.
But there was time for more, Carvalho threating through for Bobby De Cordova-Reid to find the net from 12 yards as the Fulham fans enjoyed a Bank Holiday party beside the Thames.
It got worse, substitute Jean Michael Seri teasing one past poor Ingram from 30 yards.
