Norwich City welcomes Burnley to Carrow Road on Sunday for this Premier League match. The Canaries fans will be hoping this will be their time to finally secure a victory against Burnley in this competition. The Clarets dominate the head to head in the Premier League with two wins and a draw from their three encounters. In the overall history of English football, things are much more even with Norwich picking up 15 wins to Burnley’s 21 from the 44 clashes between them in all competitions since their first meeting in Division Two back in 1934.
Norwich isn’t yet mathematically condemned to relegation just yet. However, having lost two-thirds of their games this season and just four wins out of thirty, it is hard to see where a run of three or four wins comes from in their final eight games. With Newcastle, West Ham and Spurs all to come at home, this is certainly the most winnable of their remaining four home matches. An away schedule of Manchester United, Aston Villa, Leicester and Wolves don’t look stacked with opportunities either.
The Canaries’ only wins this season have all come against opponents in the bottom half of the table. Southampton, in twelfth, represents their highest placed scalp this season. Which make victories against both Burnley and Newcastle in their next two home matches a must if they want to keep that glimmer of hope alive.
Burnley, on the other hand, will be feeling a lot more positive about their survival prospects. After a massive 3-2 win in midweek against Everton, they are now just one point behind the Toffees in the table – who have a hellish run in and a struggling manager who is already hearing whispers of being sacked after just nine games.
Six of Burnley’s nine games remaining are against teams in the bottom half of the table. Sean Dyche’s side also has a knack for holding onto a point this season against better sides. This is the primary reason they are six points above Norwich right now as they have both won just four games.
Palace (x2), Leicester, Chelsea, Wolves, West Ham, Arsenal, and Manchester United have all dropped points against Burnley in games they will feel they should have won. The 0-4 defeat against Chelsea in March is also the only time this season the Clarets have lost by a margin greater than two goals. This all points to resilience to stay in games right to the end and have a chance of salvaging a point. We saw this again in midweek when despite conceding two penalties and going behind, the team never game up and came back to win the game in the final five minutes.
Norwich losing 91% of the games in which they have fallen behind compared to 68% for Burnley says a lot about the mentality of these two sides. If Norwich falls behind in this game it is likely over. If Burnley falls behind, Norwich will still have to fight for every minute until the end.
Maxwel Cornet Goalscorer - Cornet (pictured above) was the hero who scored the winning goal for Burnley in their 3-2 comeback win against Everton. It was the Ivory Coast international’s first goal since his consolation goal in the 3-1 defeat at Leeds on 2nd January. The 25-year-old is 6/1 to score the final goal of the game once again on Sunday. Or 2.5/1 to bag a goal at any time during the game against Norwich.
Norwich City team news
The Canaries have one of the longest injury lists in the Premier League at the moment. Adam Idah is out for the season with a knee injury. Andrew Omobamidele is also on the long term injury list with a lower back injury. Ozan Kabak joins him on the long term injury list having picked up a hamstring injury on international duty vs Italy.
Max Aarons (pictured above) missed the 0-0 draw against Brighton with a thigh injury from the Leeds match. Przemyslaw Placheta was also left out of the squad due to an ankle sprain. The pair are rated as 50/50 to be involved here.
Joshua Sargent and Brandon Williams also missed the Brighton match due to injury and continue to be rated as major doubts here. The pair should be fit for the trip to Old Trafford next weekend. Although, Williams will have to sit the match out due to Premier League loan regulations about facing your parent side.
Burnley team news
The Clarets have injury concerns also coming into this match with two first-team regulars ruled out. Ben Mee has been out with a lower leg injury for the last four games and is set to be unavailable again here. Nathan Collins will continue in his place next to James Tarkowski in defence.
Johann Berg Gudmundsson is also out with a long term lower leg injury since mid-January. Aaron Lennon has made the right-wing his own in his absence and will continue there on Sunday. Erik Pieters is also ruled out with a knee injury.
Josh Brownhill will be treading lightly in midfield for Burnley. The 26-year-old needs to avoid a booking until Burnley’s 33rd league game or face a suspension having accumulated nine of the ten qualifying yellow cards already.
