Teemu Pukki Could Be The Most In-Form Striker In Football At The Moment

Teemu Pukki Could Be The Most In-Form Striker In Football At The Moment

Name a more deadly striker than Teem Pukki at the moment? We'll wait. The Norwich City striker has been banging in goals all over the place at the moment, continuing his rich vein of form in the international break.

Having bagged penalties for Finland against Greece and Italy, the former Schalke man has seven goals in six games for club and country this season - only failing to score in a single game this season after drawing a blank in Norwich's defeat to West Ham.

After notching a staggering 46 goals in all competitions for the Canaries last season, he marked his Premier League debut with a goal against Liverpool at Anfield before notching a hat-trick against Newcastle and getting on the scoresheet against Chelsea - deservingly winning the PFA Premier League Player of the Month award for his efforts.

Pukki struggled to find form at Sevilla, Schalke and Celtic but that feels like a long, long time ago now as since the start of the 2018/19 campaign, he has an impressive 43 goals in all competitions.

Granted the vast majority of his goals were scored in the second tier but numbers like those are what we've come to expect from the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo, incidentally, has notched 32 in that period - 20 of which have come from open play compared to 41 from everyone's new favourite frontman.

Pukki also has more assists than Ronaldo in that timeframe (11-10), more winning goals (11-8) and more braces (8-6).

Move over Cristiano, there's a new GOAT on the scene. He may be 29 but he's not finished yet...
