Fulham striker Pavel Pogrebnyak has surprised even himself with his form since joining Fulham.

The Russian has scored in all three games that he has played in after making the move in the January transfer window and has taken his goal tally to five.

He notched a hat-trick in the 5-0 win against Wolves on Sunday in a result that lifted the Cottagers up to eighth in the Premier League.

He was signed from Stuttgart after scoring just once in 16 games for the Bundesliga outfit.

Fulham have won all three games that Pogrebnyak has scored in and are looking at finishing the season in the top half of the table.

The 28-year-old forward is aiming to continue his form and revealed that he has settled into life in West London.

He said "I'm really happy to be part of this team. We're scoring a lot of goals and doing really well and hopefully we can continue like this until the end of the season.

"I didn't think it would be so good so early. But I'm really happy that everything is going well and I thank my team mates for everything that has happened so far.

"I'm enjoying my relationship with the fans. I want to say thank you to them for welcoming me and for their great support."
