The Republic of Ireland international's skilful goal in City's 3-1 win over Rotherham at Carrow Road in October has been included in the top 10 goals if 2016 for the award.

The Canaries' longest serving player scored his second goal of the season to put his team 1-0 up against the Millers in the 17th minute of the clash after being played through by midfield colleague Alex Pritchard.

Hoolahan then displayed the skills which have made him such a popular player across his nine seasons in Norfolk, turning two Rotherham defenders with neat turns, the second of which left Millers keeper Lee Camp on his backside, before rolling into an unguarded net.
