Burnley welcome Norwich City to Turf Moor, with both teams eyeing up their first Premier League victory of the season.

The Clarets have had a marginally better start than their opponents, taking a point from matches against Leeds United and Leicester City. By contrast, Norwich have lost SIXTEEN straight league matches - a run stretching back to the last time they were in the top-flight. 

Team News

Burnley will be without their big-money signing, Maxwel Cornet, after the Ivorian limped off with a hamstring injury against Leicester. 

There is better news for Matej Vydra, though, with the Czech back in training after his slight fitness issue in last week's match.

In the other camp, Todd Cantwell has been out with a personal problem and he is unlikely to return before the international break. 

Christoph Zimmermann could return from his ankle injury and manager Daniel Farke could be tempted to revert to a back-four, bidding to end this treacherous run of form. 

Predicted Line-ups

Burnley: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil; Vydra, Wood.

Norwich City: Krul; Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Williams; Gilmour, Normann, Lees Melou; Rashica, Pukki, Sargent.

Ones to watch

Chris Wood (Burnley): The New Zealand star has only found the net once this season, but he does have three goals in his last two matches against the Canaries. Wood is a big, physical threat and Norwich defenders have been all over the place. 

Brandon Williams (Norwich City): It has been a baptism of fire for the Manchester United loan star. Williams had some good moments under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but he has been a mainstay in a leaky Norwich backline. However, there is no doubting that the youngster can be a solid operator when he gets into attacking positions.

Previous meetings

Burnley did the double over Norwich in the 2019-20 season - the last time the visitors were in the Premier League. Both matches finished 2-0 to the Clarets.

Wood hit two goals in the fixture at Turf Moor before bagging a bicycle kick in the reverse fixture in Norfolk. Those acrobatics were followed up by a Ben Godfrey own goal. 

How to watch

There is no television coverage of the match. You will be able to watch Match of the Day on Saturday at 22.30.
