Temmu Pukki gets Premier League Player of the Month

After an immense campaign leading Norwich up to the Premier League, goal-scoring has almost never been better for the Canaries.

Teemu Pukki has maintained his incredible goalscoring form and captured the Premier League Player of the Month for August. 

With 5 goals in 4 matches, highlighted by a hat-trick against a fairly stout Newcastle defence, the Finnish international has already made his mark in the top flight.

There were further goals against Liverpool and Chelsea (both European champions), it was very much deserved.

While Norwich’s form hasn’t exactly been fantastic since their return to the top flight, Pukki has been the forward who exemplifies their fast paced, attacking play thus far. 

This was aptly demonstrated in his side’s 3-2 win over Premier League Champions Manchester City last weekend.

It is a very atypical strategy for a newly promoted side. It shows a team who could be gunning for much higher positions in years to come.

Pukki has continued his goalscoring for Finland during the international break. 

Pukki is a striker to watch over the season. it seems certain that heíll continue to score consistently for Norwich as they battle to stay up.
