Fulham knocked out of League Cup by Brentford

Fulham's early season hit another low with a 3-0 loss to second-tier side Brentford in the League Cup on Thursday.

Scott Parker's side has also lost all three Premier League games since gaining promotion by beating west London rival Brentford in the playoff final in August.
