Premier League Champion says midfielder was pivotal in Norwich's triumph and earns place in his Team of the Week

Teemu Pukki grabbed the headlines on Saturday but just as pivotal to Norwich City's 3-2 victory over Manchester City was their all-action midfielder Emiliano Buendia, says Alan Shearer

Buendia assisted two of Norwich's three goals in the 3-2 win and the Argentinian playmaker did not stop there. 

He made nine recoveries and four tackles in a brilliant individual display that gives him a place in the Premier League Champion's team of best Matchweek 5 performers.

"Buendia did it all against the reigning champions," says the competition's all-time leading scorer. "He got two assists and was absolutely everywhere."
