Sunderland moved into the play-off places after a convincing 3-0 win at Burton Albion this afternoon.
Whilst the Brewers are struggling at the bottom of the table, they have improved significantly since Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink was appointed.
However, they were no match for Lee Johnson’s side, as the visitors took an early lead through Grant Leadbitter, before Lynden Gooch doubled the Black Cats’ advantage.
When Josh Earl was sent off for the hosts, the points were safe, but Charlie Wyke still managed to continue his own fine form by getting on the scoresheet late on.
The big festive Sunderland quiz: Can you get 20/20?
That took the target man to 18 for the campaign, and he has now scored 15 goals since Johnson came in as manager.
Therefore, the fans are understandably delighted by the impact of the striker, with many surprised by just how quickly he has turned things around after a tough start once he signed.
Here we look at some of the comments to his display from Twitter…
I think Lee Johnson is certainly starting to get his message across. Charlie Wyke and Conor McLaughlin have improved massively since LJ came in I think! Starting to feel we're slowly turning this ship around. It's been a good week! #SAFC

I don’t know what but I’m starting to think Charlie Wyke’s visit to Turkey involved more than just a hair transplant…#SAFC

Wyke’s finishes are absolutely glorious. He’s making them look effortless. Deserves so much credit for this form #safc

Charlie Wyke is a different player from the one a few months back. Great hold up play and banging them in. Fair play to the lad #safc
