Though the Premier League is becoming more and more of a circus these days, the top tier is not the be all and end all of English football.
With Aston Villa and Newcastle United dropping down into the Championship, the two have embarked on hugely expensive summers themselves in a bid to get back up.
Indicative of the competitive nature of the division, Villa’s game with Nottingham Forest on Sunday marks the first time two English European Cup winners have met in the league outside the top flight.
Throw the Toon Army away at Derby County in with that too, and we start to see just how huge the Championship is.
But which of these three have the best striker?
Magpies ace Dwight Gayle has notched four goals in four league games so far this season following his move from Crystal Palace and will surely be a contender for the top scorer.
Meanwhile, up at Villa Park, they have splashed big money on Ross McCormack, who is no stranger to bagging goals by the dozen in this environment.
Last but not least Forest star Britt Assombalonga has been one of the division’s master marksmen over the last few seasons.
