Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Oliver Skipp is really making a name for himself away from Spurs on loan.
The 20-year-old left the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in August to link up with Norwich, hoping to help them in their quest for a swift return to the Premier League.
So far so good, with the Canaries sitting seven points clear at the top of the Championship table, and Skipp has played a big part in their great form.
He has started all 25 of Norwich’s league games so far this season, playing the full 90 minutes in all but two of those.
The East Anglians have won their last four in all competitions, and Skipp shone once again on Wednesday night as Bristol City were beaten 2-0 at Carrow Road.
“Shut down Bristol counters with the minimum of fuss,” wrote The Pink Un. “What a player this lad is already. Never mind in years to come.”
Although Jordan Hugill grabbed the headlines with a brace, Skipp’s display in the middle also prompted a lot of positive reaction.
Here are some comments from Norwich fans on Twitter:

One thing that won’t show in terms of basic stats is how many loose balls Skipp is first to & recycles for us. It allows us to pin teams in & turn the screw. #ncfc
