Norwich City: Statistic comparing Todd Cantwell and Jesse Lingard appears on Twitter

Norwich City fans were complimentary after a statistic comparing Jesse Lingard and Todd Cantwell emerged on Twitter.

The stat showed that the 21-year-old managed to amass as many assists in the game against Newcastle United that Lingard managed in the whole of last season in the Premier League.

The Canaries youngster has started and finished both of the Norfolk side’s games so far in the English top-flight this season, including the 3-1 win over Steve Bruce’s side.

His starring role against the Geordies saw manager Daniel Farke admit the starlet’s performances means he’s too good to leave out of the starting lineup at present.

He said: “One thing is for sure there are no gifts. It is not like he plays just because he is a local hero or he is a youngster.”

“He delivers and my feeling is he is pretty focused and improves from day-to-day. He can go further on and he must.” (Source: Pink Un)

Norwich fans couldn’t hide both their laughter and their compliments for the former England youth international, and took to Twitter to respond.
