Player Profile: Pukki the ‘Finn’isher

EPL - 2019/20 Season

It’s been a dream start to Teemu Pukki’s debut English Premier League campaign! 

The Finnish 29-year-old is top of the goalscoring chart with five goals after three rounds, including a magnificent hat-trick against Newcastle.

Much like Jamie Vardy, the Norwich hitman was just as prolific in the Championship. He netted a total of 29 times last season as the Canaries raced away to claim the league title. Can the prolific forward keep this up? For the moment, he looks like he has a coolness and calmness about his game.

Pukki is in the form of his life at under the tutelage of his manager Daniel Farke – a tactician who seemingly understands how to get the very best out of him. It might be early days but the Finnish forward is anything but finished and could prove to be the surprise star of the season.
