League Cup roundup: Middlesbrough and Burnley fall to lower league foes

Leave a comment

Sunderland and Bournemouth advanced to the League Cup third round, while Middlesbrough and Burnley dropped out after both finding themselves bested in extra-time.

A strong Boro lineup still saw its goal pummeled all evening by Fulham’s young squad, and Lasse Vigen Christensen won it in extra time with an assist from American youngster Luca de la Torre to complete the 2-1 scoreline. Middlesbrough went ahead early on an 8th minute header by David Nugent, but they were on the back foot the rest of the match. Scott Malone forced a Boro own-goal for the equalizer shortly after halftime, and Christensen won it seven minutes before penalties.

The win for Fulham means they are unbeaten through five matches this season across Championship and League Cup play. The Whites then drew a home meeting with Bristol City for the third round of the Cup.

Burnley also went to extra-time after a scoreless full 90 minutes, and they were stunned by a goal from Accrington Stanley’s Matt Pearson in the 122nd minute, just ticks before penalties to down the Clarets 1-0. It was a dull match up to that point, and the League Two side earned its first-ever victory over a Premier League side in cup play with the late winner. The winners will have another shot at a Premier League side in the next round, drawing West Ham.

Bournemouth nudged past League Two side Morecambe 2-1 thanks to goals from Max Gradel and Marc Wilson, although Morecambe had leveled things for a bit between the two Cherries’ goals. Bournemouth saw themselves drawn against Preston North End in the upcoming round.

Sunderland also saw themselves through thanks to Adnan Januzaj‘s first goal for the Black Cats, an 83rd minute strike to down League One side Shrewsbury Town 1-0 at the Stadium of Light. The match was a relatively even affair until Januzaj’s late goal, but Sunderland likely deserved to win on number of chances, with Patrick van Anholt having the best prior opportunity just before halftime with a rocket saved by Jason Leutwiler. The Black Cats will travel to QPR following the third round draw.

Transfer Rumor Roundup: Bolasie nearing Everton switch, Fabregas offered to Juventus

Everton is set to capture Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, with the Congolese international heading to Merseyside to complete a medical on Sunday, according to multiple reports.

This comes on the heels of Palace manager Alan Pardew‘s comments following an opening day loss to West Bromwich Albion, in which Pardew essentially confirmed that Bolasie is on his way out. “We know there is a big offer and a big club in for him,” Pardew told the BBC. “The deal is close and he will go with my best wishes. There’s no medical done or agreement 100% done. It’s fair to say we know his heart and soul may be elsewhere.”

Ronald Koeman has chased Bolasie for much of the summer, with a number of reported bids turned down before the two clubs settled on the current $28 million total agreed upon.

Bolasie joined Crystal Palace back in 2011, and spent two seasons in the Championship with the Eagles before earning promotion in 2013 via the playoff. He proceeded to help the club become an established Premier League side, making 90 top-flight appearances with Palace over the last three-plus seasons.

Everton has also been linked with Valencia defender Aymen Abdennour, who made just 11 league appearances in his first season with the La Liga club. This potential transfer would still be in the early stages, however, with just the Daily Mail reporting the link following the breakdown in talks for Sunderland defender Lamine Kone.


Reports out of Italy, namely from newspaper Tuttosport, have reported that Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has alerted his former club Juventus to the availability of Cesc Fabregas.

The Italian giants are looking for a replacement to Pogba’s midfield role, and Conte apparently would sacrifice Fabregas to the cause. According to the report, Juventus had made attempts to capture Axel Witsel, but those talks have not gone well. They contacted Chelsea to discuss Nemanja Matic, but Conte has instead offered Fabregas.

The report indicates that Juventus also checked in on Blaise Matuidi, but PSG had no desire to sell.

Fabregas would represent far less of a defensive presence than any other targets mentioned in this report, and indeed less than the man they intend him to replace as well, but having struck out on a number of options, it might be the only way forward for Juventus at this point.


Valencia is rumored to be close to completing the sale of Shkodran Mustafi to Arsenal. With the transfer reportedly nearing completion, the Valencia fans did something special in a last-ditch attempt to get him to stay.

Following Saturday’s final preseason friendly against Fiorentina, during the customary presentation of the players prior to the start of the regular season, the fans serenaded Mustafi in the hopes of convincing him not to leave. Mustafi was not in the lineup for the game and did not feature, fueling the transfer fire even more, but was on hand to experience the act of good will from the fans.


With the falling out between Stoke City and defender Marc Wilson following an ill-advised Twitter rampage, the 28-year-old is set to leave the Britannia, and reports indicate that Bournemouth is the most interested.

ESPN’s Pete O’Rourke has reported that the Cherries are “lining up a move” for Wilson, who played just one Premier League game last season for Stoke.

Wilson was clearly upset at both his lack of playing time and manager Mark Hughes‘ training methods, and aired that laundry out in public on social media during a Q&A with fans. Hughes responded by telling reporters at his pre-match press conference this weekend, “Marc probably feels his future lies elsewhere and it’s fair to say I probably agree with him.”

The ESPN report was corroborated by Sky Sports reporter Mark McAdam, who posted that the two clubs had agreed to a deal of $2.5 million. Wilson spent a portion of the 2006/07 season on loan at Bournemouth, while with parent club Portsmouth.

Transfer Rumor Roundup: Defour to break Burnley record, Mustafi to Arsenal back on

With Middlesbrough making big-name moves and even Championship clubs spending like crazy, Burnley is just looking to keep up.

The agent of Anderlecht midfielder Steven Defour says that the two clubs have agreed to bring the 28-year-old Belgian to the Premier League in a $9 million deal that would make Defour the Clarets’ record signing.

Defour has come close to joining the Premier League on multiple occasions in the past. Everton had a bid rejected by Standard Liege in 2011, Manchester United was reportedly interested around that time as well, and Fulham came close to a deal in 2014 but talks broke down with Porto and Defour moved to Anderlecht.

Burnley still has not yet confirmed the deal, but Anderlecht has, wishing him “good luck” on Twitter.


Arsenal has been linked to Valencia defender Shkodran Mustafi for much of the summer, but things have been quiet at the Emirates and Gunners fans are starving for an addition to counter some early-season injuries. Now, according to Spanish media reports, things might be hitting high gear.

Plaza Deportiva reports that Valencia owner Peter Lim flew to London to complete the transfer. The report also states Mustafi has already agreed to a deal with Arsenal, and the fee is all that is required to green light a medical.

The deal will reportedly cost Arsenal $39 million, despite Mustafi’s release clause of $54 million. Fueling the fire, Mustafi was left out of Wednesday’s friendly with a Nigerian all-star team.


Stoke City defender Marc Wilson has suddenly fallen out of favor with manager Mark Hughes and looks ready to find himself a new club. The 28-year-old has been with the Potters since 2010, but a week ago went on an eye-raising Twitter tirade targeting Hughes’ training, tactics, and team selection.

During a Q&A with fans, Wilson tweeted things like, “it would actually help if we ever did any defensive training which we dont,” I think I deserve game time, only way to get fit but hey that’s down to the manager. Finished last season horrifically,” and “think we have gotten away from being a tight compact unit when we lose the ball.”

On Friday, when asked about the incident during the pre-match press conference leading up to Saturday’s Premier League opener at Middlesbrough, Hughes confirmed Wilson is likely to depart. “It’s fair to say that Marc feels his future lies elsewhere and it’s fair to say I probably agree with him,” said Hughes. “Sometimes players can be frustrated with a perceived lack of opportunity and that’s the case with Marc. He maybe expressed himself in the wrong way.”


Everton has seen a $11 million bid rejected for Lyon forward Rachid Ghezzal, according to a report by Goal.

The Toffees are leaving their business late, having just secured the purchase of Swansea defender Ashley Williams. Now, they’ve reportedly targeted the unsettled Algerian, who rejected a new contract with the Ligue 1 side, and Friday was sent to train with the reserves until his future is sorted, according to Lyon manager Bruno Genesio. West Ham have also reportedly submitted bids that were rejected, and Arsenal is apparently interested, but not willing to submit an offer until January.

Ghezzal is a Lyon academy product and scored eight goals and eight assists last year in 28 Ligue 1 appearances. The 24-year-old has just one year remaining on his current contract at Lyon.
