Norwich fans have taken to Twitter to react after Emiliano Buendia stole the show as they watched their side run riot over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium, smashing the Swans by four goals to one.
The Canaries are now two points clear at the top of the Championship table ahead of Middlesbrough, and the victory in south Wales was Daniel Farke’s side’s sixth on the trot – only Paris Saint-Germain can match that league form over the same time period.
Playmaker FC’s Matchday with Max caught up with Jamaica’s women’s team. See what happened when he met the history makers in the video below…
Whilst the usual suspect in Teemu Pukki ran things up top and got yet another goal this season – his 11th strike so far this campaign – one man stood out amongst every other player on the pitch; 21-year-old Buendia.
The Argentine grabbed his third goal of the season in the rout and was named Man of the Match – the youngster now has three goals and three assists in 12 league starts so far this season.
As a result of his eye-catching display, Norwich fans took to Twitter to laud their rising star…
Emi Buendia. Easily the best creative player in the championship. The vision and flair this lad has is insane. Hate to day but come the end of the season if he keeps up current performances I might think he's better than what Wes was with us… #ncfc

Also, can't wait for the £50m Man City pay us for Buendia after one season in the PL. #NCFC

Pukki rightly getting the plaudits for arguably being the best signing of the season in the league, but I tell you what, Buendia is running him close! What a spot by the recruitment team! #ncfc

Emi Buendia, what a fantastic player.
Not just his technical quality, but his endeavour and physicality off the ball. He fills spaces defensively and never stops running.
He’s blossoming into one of the best players in the league. What’s more, he’s only 21. #ncfc
