Norwich boss Smith admits Pukki has surprised him

Norwich City boss Dean Smith admits Teemu Pukki has surprised him.

The Canaries meet Tottenham with the Finn in excellent goalscoring form.

"I knew was a good player. I probably didn't realise how good a player until you actually work with him," said the Norwich boss. “His work rate, his quality in terms of his finishing, the quality of his runs, and how he sets the tempo for us. I've been really pleased with what we've got.

"He is setting the standard now for the others to follow.

“He needs help from others, in terms of scoring, but if you speak to Teemu you wouldn't know he was carrying that weight on his shoulders.

"He seems a real level headed, laid back guy who wants to work hard for the team. We know we cannot be overly reliant on just one goalscorer."
