Four key passes; five dribbles: Norwich's Nathan Redmond steals the show versus Sunderland

Norwich City

Nathan Redmond impressed for Norwich City against Sunderland on Saturday.

Nathan Redmond impressed again for Norwich City as they cruised to their first win of the season; a 3-1 mauling of Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

The England under-21 international proved a constant thorn in the side of the Black Cats with his athleticism and ability to craft space for his team-mates. 

For the second successive Premier League match, Redmond crowned his display with a goal for the Canaries.

Having scored on the opening weekend in the club's 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace, he was able to double his season's tally at the expense of the Dick Advocaat's side.

He managed three attempts in total throughout his 83-minute cameo, from which he hit the target on just the single occasion.

In a creative sense he flourished, fashioning more key passes than any other player (4), and despite the high-risk nature of his playing style, he proved very efficient in possession - completing 86.3% of his attempts to find a teammate. 

The Englishman proved the catalyst for the club's first three points of the season and, despite finding himself dispossessed on six occasions, he was able to record five successful dribbles throughout his involvement.

Redmond is a player who - having proven this during both his spells in the top flight - has no problem stepping up for his side when called upon and he looks set to be a force to be reckoned with this season.
