Emiliano Buendia is the most coveted player in the Championship by some distance and he put in another expert performance in Norwich's victory over Barnsley.

The diminutive Argentine scored an 8.4 FC Rating and seems to have a full range of skills, winning 12/19 duels as well as completing six dribbles. The big question for Norwich will be keeping him beyond the end of this transfer window.

He is joined in the Team of the Week for Round 23 by team-mates Jacob Sorensen (8.1), Ben Gibson (7.6) and Kenny McLean (7.5).

Away from Swansea, Jamal Lowe (8.7) continues to score spectacularly for Swansea and has pushed them very much into the promotion picture via the automatic positions.

Alongside him in attack, Lucas Joao (8.4) continues to singled-handedly fire Reading into the playoff picture, scoring a quite stunning individual goal away at Huddersfield in the process. Adam Armstrong (7.7) brought a bad run to an end for Blackburn by scoring the opener away at Birmingham.

Bournemouth remain very much in the hunt for a direct return to the Premier League and Asmir Begovic (7.3) and Lewis Cook (8.0) were once again key performers as they secured a good away victory at Stoke.

Korey Smith (7.9) of Swansea and Tom McIntyre (7.3) of Reading make up the rest of the team.
