Sebastien Bassong: Has been in exceptional form in Norwich's recent resurgen

The Cameroonian centre-back has proved an inspired signing for the Canaries and scored his second goal in three games to help earn Chris Hughton's side a hard-fought victory over Sunderland last weekend.

The win extended their unbeaten run to eight league games, and Bassong highlighted the importance of regular football to his fine form.

"It makes a big difference for a player, especially somebody like me and my body," he said speaking on Talksport.

"I need to play week in, week out to get the best out of me.

"I've no regrets about leaving Tottenham. I am enjoying my time here and the results are good for us. The people around me at the club, the fans as well are lovely, so I am really happy to be here. I hope I can keep on scoring and helping to win games for Norwich."

Bassong went on to allay any fears that he picked up a knee injury against the Wearsiders following a nasty-looking collision with Sunderland's Connor Wickham.

"I'm okay. I just damaged my knee a bit when I went shoulder to shoulder with Wickham," he said.

"He is a big lad so I had to go quite strong and when I landed my knee twisted a little bit but I knew I was going to be okay to finish the game. I've had a bit of treatment. We knew it would be tough in the second half.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
