Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki has equalled a Premier League goalscoring record with his fifth goal of the season against Chelsea this afternoon.
The Finnish frontman has made a flying start to the campaign, netting against Liverpool on the opening day before scoring a hat-trick against Newcastle United in Norwich's first home game back in the top flight.
Pukki's goal just past the hour mark against Chelsea at Carrow Road this afternoon has now seen him become only the second player to score five goals in his first three Premier League games, equalling the record held by Pavel Pogrebnyak.
The league's in-form marksman - who topped the goalscoring charts in the Championship last season - also becomes only the 10th player to have netted in each of his opening three outings in the competition.
10 - Teemu Pukki is the 10th player to have scored in each of his first three @premierleague appearances, while only Pavel Pogrebnyak also scored as many as five in his first three in the competition. Command. #NORCHE— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) August 24, 2019
