Teemu Pukki, Norwich City

Norwich City striker looks to follow in footsteps of just four players and break an Aguero record at Carrow Road this weekend

He has yet to blank at Carrow Road in the Premier League and this weekend Teemu Pukki has the chance to join an exclusive club of just four players.

The Norwich City striker rose to the top of the scoring charts with five goals and two assists in his first three home appearances in the competition.

And having played back-to-back away matches, the Finn returns home against Aston Villa on Saturday hoping to follow Diego Costa and Co, and break a record jointly-held by Sergio Aguero.
