According to OPTA, Norwich City midfielder Emi Buendía is among the chief chance-creators in Europe's top five leagues this season and second in the Premier League.

69 - Emi Buendía has created 69 chances for Norwich in the Premier League this season, and ranks fourth among all players in Europe's top fives leagues behind Kevin De Bruyne (94), Dimitri Payet (78) and Ángel Di María (71).

Buendía is in some pretty esteemed company with regard to this particular statistic, with Man City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne the only Premier League star above him. Marseille's Dimitri Payet and PSG star Ángel Di María are the other schemers in the mix.
Emiliano Buendía has been in and out of the Canaries side this season in recent weeks but has generally impressed when selected by Daniel Farke in a central attacking midfield role, or out wide. Despite settling for a substitute's role in Norwich's last two Premier League outings, Buendía is the often the man to bring an extra creative spark to the side and has supplied seven assists in 25 Premier League outings for Norwich City this term.
It's unclear whether Buendía will start Norwich's trip to Wolves this Sunday but he'll most certainly be in the matchday 18, and Daniel Farke will need all of his ability if they are to claim a positive result at Molineux.
