55 passes: The classy Norwich City man who is key to their promotion push



Norwich City remain on track for promotion after they beat Hull City 3-2 at Carrow Road last night.

The scoreline doesn’t really tell the whole story though, with the Canaries wastefulness in front of goal the only reason they had a nervy finish.

In truth, they should’ve won by a few more goals because they were superb going forward, with the talented Emi Buendia once again key to that.

As our graphic shows, it was an all-action display from the 22-year-old who has established himself as a fans favourite with his excellent technique and good attitude this season.

And, he was certainly at his best last night, contributing with two goals to follow up on from the winner he struck against Swansea on Friday.

But, the ex-Getafe man brings far more than goals to the team and he left Carrow Road in amazement with an outrageous flick pass to Teemu Pukki that ended up with Buendia scoring the Yellows’ third.

As you can see from the stats, he is always looking to get involved and take control for Daniel Farke’s side, evident with his 55 passes.

The only reason his accuracy is quite poor is because he is often the man who is trying the more difficult, probing passes but that’s what makes him a special player.

Even though they weren’t fancied at the start of the season, Norwich seem destined for the Premier League, with Buendia’s display last night clearly showing the class they have in the side.
