The stats that say Norwich City have the best player in the Championship
Norwich City forward Teemu Pukki is the most in-form player in the second tier, according to the latest Sky Sports Championship Power Rankings.
The Canaries’ flying Finn scored his third goal in as many games during Norwich’s 1-0 win at QPR on Saturday, extending his overall tally to five this season.
Chelsea loanee Mason Mount sits just behind Pukki after scoring in Derby’s 3-1 win over Brentford whilst Birmingham forward Che Adams is third after his double in the Blues’ surprise 2-1 win over Leeds United.
The next Norwich player in the rankings is Moritz Leitner, who sits in 15th place overall.
The Power Rankings methodology reflects a player’s performance by awarding points for 34 different stats. The in-form chart is based on performances over the past five Championship matchdays (with greater weight placed on recent games).
