QPR were promoted to the Premier League after winning the play-off final at Wembley in May.

But what chance have Harry Redknapp's side got of surviving on their return to the top flight?

The Hoops got themselves off the mark before the international break with a 1-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday and according to the stats they have a more than 50 per cent chance of retaining their place in the elite division.

Our figures suggest that newly-promoted teams have a 56 per cent chance of going straight back down.

Since the start of the Premier League there have been 62 promotions to the Championship, where the team has had a chance of being relegated (i.e. not including the most recent three).

Of those 62 promotions, only 27 were relegated in their first season - 44 per cent.

Eight teams were relegated in their second Premier League season, three in their third, two in their fourth, and 12 in any subsequent campaign.

However, there are 10 teams to have been promoted who have yet to be relegated back into the Championship.

On average, teams last 3.6 seasons in the Premier League following promotion.

Based on that stat, teams such as West Brom, Newcastle and Swansea could be in line for a relegation battle this season.
