Norwich City extended their lead at the top of the Championship after an impressive 2-0 success over Cardiff City this afternoon.
Daniel Farke’s men were outstanding in spells against the Bluebirds, with Emi Buendia a constant threat throughout.
The ability of the 23-year-old is not in question, as he has starred for the Canaries since joining in 2018, but he has stood -out particularly in recent weeks.
Buendia’s smart finish in the first-half was his sixth of the season, and his fifth in seven games, whilst he also created several chances in what has a devastating Norwich display at times.

Todd Cantwell and Teemu Pukki also did well, but it was the Argentinian playmaker who made the difference, with the Yellows now seven points clear of third place as we approach the busy festive period.
As you would expect, the Norwich fans were delighted with Buendia when discussing the impact he made, and here we look at some of the comments from Twitter…
What a win! Should have been more than 2 but in complete control. Buendia is an absolute joy to watch #ncfc

Buendia upped the level and just delivered a masterclass in that second half. He is the difference. #NCFC

As for Buendia going, promotion is worth around £120m to us, Emi leaving would be a huge dent in our hopes, don’t see Webber sanctioning that for anything under £50m. Doubt he’s up for another relegation battle anyway. #ncfc

In my lifetime I can't say I've seen a better player grace the Championship than Buendia. Stats are outrageous #ncfc
