Norwich City continued their sensational run of form in the Championship at the weekend, after a magnificent 4-1 victory away at Swansea City.
Daniel Farke’s men went into the encounter at the Liberty Stadium on the back of five successive league wins, sitting at the top of the Championship after 18 games.
It was looking like it would be a tough test for the Norfolk side – Graham Potter’s men had won three of their last four league games as they looked to launch an assault on the playoff places.
But the Canaries blew away the Swans in rampant style – goals from Emi Buendia, Marco Stiepermann and an own-goal from Mike van der Hoorn put Norwich 3-1 up at the half-time break.
Teemu Pukki then scored yet another goal to add to his growing tally this season, to confirm all three points for Norwich.
