It has been another thrilling #championship season so far at the top and bottom of the table, as always. But who have been the stand-out players, here are my favourites so far.

Dwight Gayle

The striker was tipped to be the Championship's top goalscorer this season when he moved to St James' Park from Crystal Palace this summer, and he has not disappointed. Gayle has 11 Championship goals so far this season and tops the goalscoring leader-board.

Gayle was signed by the Magpies for £10 million pounds this summer, after he struggled to hold down a place in the Palace starting line-up in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old is a top quality striker and will continue to keep banging in the goals for Newcastle as they aim to maintain their tag of promotion favourites.

Jamaal Lascelles

Newcastle have struggled to have a strong leader on the pitch in recent years but in Lascelles they seem to have found a natural leader, who is proving that age doesn't matter when appointing a captain of a team.

The 22-year-old centre-back isn't afraid to speak up if something is wrong and rightly took responsibility for a couple of individual mistakes he made at the start of the season, which is very impressive and showed maturity beyond his years.

Whilst Newcastle's attacking players have grabbed most of the headlines this season, but Lascelles is at the heart of a defence that has only conceded just three goals away from home.

Tom Cairney

Fulham are currently enjoying a much better Championship season than last year, they sit just outside the play-off places and Cairney has played an influential part in that success.

The former Hull City midfielder has netted fourth times for Fulham this season, including capping off a great performance against Brentford with a late individual goal to secure a 2-0 win.

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has come out and say that the midfielder is not for sale at any price, following his excellent performances.

The 25-year-old has also been Fulham captain for many of their games this season, using his skill and leadership qualities to guide Fulham to the outskirts of the play-offs.

Aaron Mooy

Surely nobody could have anticipated the terrific start that Huddersfield Town would have made this season, the opening 16 matches of the season have given their supporters a lot to celebrate.

An impressive seven wins from the first 10 matches gave Town their best start to a new season in their history, with the Terriers on-loan Manchester City man Aaron Mooy being instrumental figure in Huddersfield's terrific start to the season.

Everything Huddersfield do is orchestrated by Mooy, he makes them tick and he will be a key player if the Terriers are going to keep this form going.

Tammy Abraham

This is a young player has exploded onto the scene and another player who not much was expected from this season. The 19-year-old is on-loan at Bristol City from Chelsea until the end of the season and the striker already has nine Championship goals to his name already this season.

The way Abraham has developed so quickly from youth #Football with Chelsea to competitive first-team football is incredible.

His form hasn't gone unnoticed, an England U21 call-up came in September and he netted twice on his full debut in a 5-0 victory.
