Lasse Vigen Christensen's extra-time goal gave Championship side Fulham a deserved 2-1 victory over Premier League Middlesbrough to reach the third round of the EFL Cup.

Fulham, who made 10 changes for the tie at Craven Cottage, had to recover from conceding a goal after only eight minutes to David Nugent.

But they fought back superbly after the break as Julien De Sart's 54th-minute own goal and Christensen's dramatic 113th-minute strike sent Slavisa Jokanovic's men through to the delight of the...

Why the Premier League's promoted teams have started strong

Turning the page from off-the-field strife, Hull City finds itself in surprising position near the top of the table.
Turning the page from off-the-field strife, Hull City finds itself in surprising position near the top of the table.

After a Premier League season in which Leicester City became one of the most unlikely winners in history, the underdog trend has continued into the new campaign. Over the first two weeks, the promoted teams have all impressed, with Burnley collecting three points, Middlesbrough four and Hull City -- tipped rock bottom by most pundits -- six. Only one newcomer, Norwich, got relegated last season. Considering the solid start, one wonders whether the two-out of-three rate can be emulated, or even bettered, this time.

Some of the new arrivals are better equipped than others. Middlesbrough have recruited heavily and look the strongest on paper, while Burnley have struggled to do likewise and rely on much of last season's core. Hull have done well to even get a team out at all, having kicked off the season with 13 fit senior players. Yet resources and results do not always correlate in the Premier League. Below follows an examination of the approaches of the three teams and what the underlying numbers tell us so far.

Middlesbrough's Jordan Rhodes in line for EFL Cup opportunity

Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka praises his squad following Middlesbrough's win in the Tees-Wear derby.

Middlesbrough striker Jordan Rhodes could be handed the chance to stake his claim for a regular place in Aitor Karanka's starting line-up in Wednesday night's EFL Cup tie at Fulham.

Rhodes, a £9 million signing from Blackburn Rovers in January, has had to watch on from the sidelines as newly promoted Boro have made an unbeaten start in the Premier League, and reports emerged last week that he could be on his way out of the club.

He was an unused substitute in the opening-day 1-1 draw against...

Sunderland manager David Moyes: Things will not change overnight

Sunderland boss David Moyes speaks after losing to Middlesbrough in the Tees-Wear derby.

Sunderland manager David Moyes has said he is not being defeatist by saying the club face another Premier League relegation fight after just two games of the season.

His comments, following Sunday's 2-1 home derby defeat to Middlesbrough, sparked dismay from some fans who had hoped for better following four successive battles to preserve top-flight status.

Moyes has high hopes of changing that trend and steering Sunderland into calmer waters -- but he knows there is no quick fix.

Stewart Downing: Boro enjoying promising start, but long way to go

Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka praises his squad following Middlesbrough's win in the Tees-Wear derby.

Stewart Downing is refusing to be carried away by promoted Middlesbrough's encouraging start to life back in the Premier League.

Boro followed up their opening day draw with Stoke with a 2-1 derby victory over Sunderland on Sunday to secure a first top-flight win since their return and strengthen their belief that they belong in the big time.

Former Aston Villa, Liverpool and West Ham midfielder Downing was always confident his home-town club would have what it takes to mix it in the Premier League,...
