One of the most unsurprising surprise packages of this Premier League season is Norwich’s frontman Teemu Pukki.

The Fin has started the season in blistering form, hitting the net six times in five appearances in what is his first season in the English top flight.

The Canaries have meant business since their return to the Prem this season, having won the Championship title last season and Pukki played a big part in the show too.

In fact, being Norwich’s main man last season meant that Teemu Pukki finished the season on 29 league goals in his 43 matches that he featured in, an outstanding stat.

In only his second season in England, Pukki has netted against the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and in the Canaries 3-2 victory over Manchester City on the weekend. An honourable mention must also go to the hat-trick that he bagged against Newcastle in just his second Premier League game (EVER).

An international star for his native Finland, Pukki has some real good qualities that have helped him become the star of the show in East Anglia.

Being a late bloomer, Pukki possesses some skills that really allow him to play freely. His link up play is sharp, his movement is unrivalled at the moment and his explosive finishing means he is likely to set the cat amongst the pigeons when it comes to the golden boot in April/May.

It remains to be seen whether Pukki will launch himself into super stardom in the Premier League, but he’ll certainly be remembered for his aggressively good start to the season.
