‘He is pure class’: Oliver Skipp amazes Norwich City fans with MOTM display

Quick Reads

Tottenham loanee Oliver Skipp continued his incredible form for Norwich City with a Man of the Match display in their 4-1 win against Stoke City. 

Skipp, who joined the Canaries on a season-long loan to gain more first-team experience, has started all of their 29 league games so far this season. 

The midfielder has been one of their standout performers, helping Daniel Farke’s side go top of the Championship as they look to get back into the Premier League.

“It’s been perfect,” Skipp told Standard Sport in January. “Whilst playing for Tottenham for 10 or 15 minutes off the bench was a dream, this year’s been brilliant for my development. You can do all the training in the world around the first team but nothing replaces playing week in, week out.

“Physically we can all cope with playing every three days but mentally putting one game aside and moving on to the next one, keeping going and going, that’s been the most challenging thing.

“You don’t appreciate it until you do it. That’s the biggest thing I’ve learned.”

He produced another impressive performance against Stoke City before being substituted in the 81st minute due to concussion.

The England Under-21 international completed 43 of his 50 attempted passes (a success rate of 86%) and also won nine of his 11 duels. 

We’ve rounded up a number of tweets from Norwich fans that were impressed by his display.
