Leeds United could not put a halt to their dismal run of form on Friday night in the Championship and fell to a 1-0 defeat away at Aston Villa.

Lewis Grabban headed the winner just before the half-hour mark, giving the Claret and Blues maximum points to keep their promotion hopes well and truly alive.

But while it was a better display from the Whites, who put up much more than a fight than they have done recently, one player in particular got it in the neck from the throngs of supporters – Pierre-Michel Lasogga.

And Phil Hay, chief sports writer of the Yorkshire Evening Post commented on the display of the 26-year-old who he described on Twitter as “gone.”

Whites manager Paul Heckingbottom started Caleb Ekuban up front but brought Lasogga on in the 78th minute and from the moment he started warming up it was obvious he wasn’t really there.

He might be their top goal scorer with ten goals in 31 appearances, but fans will be glad to see the back of him.

One fan even suggested that signing the German-born forward would spell relegation next season.

Here is a selection of reactions on Twitter to the display of Lasogga:
