Leeds United striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga announced his arrival in the Championship with a bang at the weekend in a 5-0 win over Burton Albion.

He scored two and provided an assist, and came close to adding to his tally against Birmingham City on Tuesday evening.

The German is on a season long loan from Hamburg and is hoping to re-discover the form which once saw him called up at international level.

After his terrific start, SkyBet have released odds on him winning the Championship Golden Boot - and already he is third favourite.
