Norwich 2-0 Burnley


Norwich 2-0 Burnley


Norwich has won at Carrow Road to stymie Burnley’s hopes of staying up. The Canaries may not score many goals, but they are a more challenging prospect under Dean Smith, as the Clarets have found out. Lees-Melou’s early goal gave the hosts a lead to protect, a job they did exceptionally well. Burnley had their moments, especially in the first half, but faded in the second to let Teemu Pukki wrap things up. However, Cornet will regret his close-range miss when the score was only 1-0.

Starting Lineup:

NORWICH CITY (4-3-1-2): Tim Krul; Sam Byram, Grant Hanley (c), Ben Gibson, Dimitrios Giannoulis; Kieran Dowell, Mathias Normann, Pierre Lees-Melou; Kenny McLean; Teemu Pukki, Milot Rashica.

SUBS: Brandon Williams, Jon Rowe, Angus Gunn, Jacob Lungi Sorensen, Tony Springett, Christos Tzolis, Max Aarons, Christoph Zimmermann, Lukas Rupp.

BURNLEY (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Matthew Lowton, Nathan Collins, James Tarkowski (c), Charlie Taylor; Aaron Lennon, Ashley Westwood, Josh Brownhill, Maxwel Cornet; Jay Rodriguez, Wout Weghorst.

SUBS: Bobby Thomas, Kevin Long, Connor Roberts, Jack Cork, Dale Stephens, Wayne Hennessey, Ashley Barnes, Dwight McNeil, Matej Vydra.


GOAL! NORWICH CITY 1-0 BURNLEY! Burnley doesn’t wholly deal with Dowell’s corner as Byram heads wide. Instead, the ball comes out to Lees-Melou, who takes a stuttered run-up from the edge of the box to curl it precisely into the bottom right corner.

GOAL! NORWICH CITY 2-0 BURNLEY! Pukki sinks Burnley’s hopes of getting anything from this game! The visitors switch off after a Norwich free-kick. The Finn controls Normann’s pass to slot past Pope into the bottom left corner of the net.

So, what’s next?

The pressure stays on Burnley for the next few games, while Norwich City looks better for accepting their fate.

Nevertheless, both teams look likely to play in the Championship next season.
