When Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki scored his first Premier League goal against Liverpool at Anfield last month, he achieved the rare feat of scoring with his first shot on target in each of the last eight seasons.
Stretching back to 2012, the 29-year-old Finland international found the back of the net with his first shot on target with Schalke, Celtic, Brondby and Norwich. Judging by his remarkable scoring rate since, he is in no hurry to stop.
Five games into the campaign with the newly-promoted side, Pukki has now scored six goals and provided two assists. No other player has been involved in more league goals this season.
No wonder then that he was named the Premier League player of the month for August, highlighted by his performance against Newcastle United where he grabbed a hat-trick – a feat he never accomplished in the second tier.
On Saturday, he helped an injury-ravaged Norwich, who had 11 players sidelined, script a famous 3-2 win over champions Manchester City at Carrow Road, scoring one and setting up another on the counter-attack.
