BURNLEY are back in Premier League action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Daniel Farke’s Norwich City (KO 3pm).

Sean Dyche’s men are still searching for their first league win of the season following last weekend’s 2-2 draw at Leicester.

Chris Wood thought he’d won it for the Clarets after heading home in injury time, but the goal was ruled out by VAR.

Here is everything you need to know about the game.

Team news

Matej Vydra should be available for Saturday’s game after being forced off at Leicester with a back injury.

Jay Rodriguez could also feature after recovering from a hamstring problem but Maxwel Cornet is likely to miss out.

Opposition lowdown

Norwich won the Championship title last season, finishing on 97 points after losing just seven league matches.

The Canaries brought in several fresh faces over the summer including Burnley defender Ben Gibson, who spent time on loan at Carrow Road last term.

Farke’s men find themselves at the foot of the league table after losing their opening six matches back in the top-flight.


  • Burnley have faced Norwich 41 times in their history, with a record of 19 wins, seven draws and 15 defeats
  • The Canaries won the last match between the sides at Turf Moor following a 2-1 victory in the FA Cup back in January 2020

Last meeting

Dyche’s men ran out 2-0 winners when the sides last met in the Premier League following an eventful game at Carrow Road.

Chris Wood opened the scoring with an acrobatic volley before Ben Godfrey’s bizarre own goal wrapped up the result.

Norwich played the second half with nine men after Emiliano Buendia and Josip Drmic were both sent off.
