Mike Phelan could scoop Hull City job with win over Manchester United

Anthony Richardson looks at Hull City's surprise start in the Premier League.

When Mike Phelan was given the chance to lead Hull City back into the Premier League, he will have hoped a caretaker reign would extend to two attractive fixtures at the front end of his diary.

After the looming international break there is a trip to Phelan's boyhood team Burnley, where he spent his formative years as a professional footballer, but first, on Saturday evening, comes a date with the club that went on to define him.

Manchester United was where Phelan spent 19 years as a player and...

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.

Adama Diomande brace against Exeter puts Hull City into EFL Cup third round

Adama Diomande celebrates after scoring at Exeter
Adama Diomande's brace gave Hull City a 3-1 win over Exeter in the EFL Cup on Tuesday.

Hull's first-team coach Stephen Clemence was full of praise for Adama Diomande after he fired the Premier League team to an EFL Cup second-round 3-1 win at League Two Exeter.

The Grecians, conquerors of Brentford in round one, threatened an upset when Jake Taylor put them in front with a stunning 25-yard strike, but their joy was short lived as Diomande equalised within 60 seconds.

He added a second slightly against the run of play after 77 minutes before Robert Snodgrass killed the game off by...

Hull continued their fine start to the season, but only after they were given a scare by Sky Bet League Two Exeter.

Jake Taylor gave Exeter the lead with a stunning long-range strike, but joint Premier League leaders Hull hit back to win 3-1 with two goals from Adama Diomande and a Robert Snodgrass strike.

After a relatively even first 15 minutes, Hull came within a whisker of taking the lead when the dangerous Diomande cut in from the left wing and curled a shot against the face of the crossbar.

Mike Phelan: Minimal lineup changes coming for Hull City in cup tie

Anthony Richardson recaps an epic weekend in the Premier League, where Hull City and Mike Phelan are in the spotlight.

Caretaker boss Mike Phelan plans to keep Hull's momentum going in the EFL Cup at Exeter by keeping changes to a minimum.

Phelan accepts he has little room for manoeuvre in Devon with only the return of Harry Maguire possibly adding to the 13 senior players he had available for Saturday's 2-0 win at Swansea.

But Phelan says he does not want to upset the rhythm that the Tigers have established by winning their opening two Premier League games since promotion.

"Everybody's going to Exeter," said Phelan....
