Leeds United put on an impressive display as Pierre Michel-Lasogga scored two goals on his debut in a 5-0 victory over Burton Albion. The on-loan Hamburg striker looked to settle into his new team as the home side extended their unbeaten start to the season. The Brewers made three changes from their last game as deadline day signings John Brayford and Jamie Allen both started. Goals from Lasogga, Kalvin Phillips and from Pablo Hernandez saw the visitors go 3-0 down going into the half. The home side came out strong the second half and on 54 minutes Kemar Roofe made in 4-0. Just before the one hour mark, Lasogga had his second of the game. The loss puts Burton in the relegation zone on 4 points, tied with Birmingham City. The Brewers next game is away to Norwich City on Tuesday the 12th of September, with a 19.45 kick-off
