A first-half Chris Wood double was enough to move Burnley up to seventh in the Premier League table. 

The Clarets had the game sewn up inside the opening 15 minutes thanks to striker Wood who broke his goal drought in style.

He notched his first of the campaign on 10 minutes, glancing home an Ashley Westwood corner at the near post.

And four minutes later he’d doubled his and Burnley’s tally with another near post finish, this time sweeping the ball home from five yards out after running onto a Dwight McNeil cross.

Burnley had started brightly, looking to peg the visitors back inside their own 18-yard line and sensing the playing out from back that served the Canaries so well against Manchester City might not be as successful this week.

Jack Cork had the chance to add a third on 18 minute but he saw his shot saved by Tim Krul.

And a few minutes later there was a rare foray forward for the Canaries which ended with substitute Moritz Leitner – on for the injured Alexander Tettey - striking the post with Nick Pope well-beaten.

The Clarets came out for the second half hungry for more but had to be patient for the chances.

Barnes curled a shot over on the hour mark after a neat one-two with Wood before Wood himself had a shot straight at Krul from a low McNeil cross.

Norwich continued to press sporadically but failed to create much to trouble Pope, man of the moment Teemu Pukki coming closest with a shot straight at the Burnley stopper.

Burnley had a big shout for a penalty on 75 minutes, Barnes felt on the edge of the box as he looked to get a ball under control.

But referee David Coote was having none of it and he waved away the appeals. Most inside Turf Moor seemed bemused that the VAR ref Kevin Friend had chosen not to look at the incident.

Leitner almost gave the 2,500 traveling Norwich fans something to cheer about on 84 minutes but his curling effort went well beyond the far post.

That was the last ofthe goalmouth action as the Clarets ensure Norwich were not going to cause them any late scares.
