Match Preview: Burnley v Norwich City

19 September 2019

Norwich City travel to Burnley this weekend for their first-ever Premier League meeting with the Clarets on Saturday afternoon (3pm KO).

Our Match Preview includes insight from a local journalist to discuss the opposition in detail, an overview of this fixture’s history, and who will be the man in the middle at Turf Moor.

There are also details for City fans travelling to Burnley, including directions and security information, as well as a guide on how to follow the action for those who aren’t at the ground.

The opposition

Burnley have become an established Premier League club since they won the Championship in 2016, fending off a testing start to their 2018-19 campaign.

Perhaps victims of their own success, an incredible 2017-18 season saw Burnley finish 7th and qualify for the Europa League, contributing to a challenging ten months the following year.

Despite a troubling start in which the Clarets found themselves in the relegation zone right up until the end of 2018, the club stood by Sean Dyche and were rewarded for their patience.

Burnley had a radical upturn in form, going eight games unbeaten from December 30, 2018 to February 23, 2019, in a run that included a draw against Manchester United and a win over Tottenham Hotspur. They eventually finished 15th in the Premier League, avoiding relegation by six points.

This season, it’s been a respectable start to the season. Whilst five points in as many games demonstrates a less than impressive run, the two defeats have come against Liverpool and Arsenal. Meanwhile, draws away to Wolverhampton Wanderers and Brighton & Hove Albion, alongside an opening 3-0 home win to Southampton make up the rest of the results.

Expert view

Earlier in the week, canaries.co.uk spoke to Chris Boden, Sports Editor at the Burnley Express, to get his thoughts on the Claret’s season so far.

“They’ve largely played well, probably until the second half against Brighton on Saturday,” he said. “One way or another, they’ll stay in the league. I’m certain of that.”

“This is one of those games where all three results are possible. You could conceivably see Norwich building on last week, you could see Burnley being strong and getting something, so I’ll sit on the fence and say a point apiece.”

Head-to-head

Norwich City and Burnley have met on 40 occasions since 1934, with City winning 14 times, Burnley winning 19 times, and the other seven games ending in a draw.

Last time the two sides met was at Carrow Road in the FA Cup third round on January 7, 2012. City won that game 4-1, with goals from Grant Holt, Simeon Jackson, Andrew Surman and Steve Morison sending Paul Lambert’s Canaries through to a Round 4 tie at West Bromwich Albion.

Saturday’s game will represent the first time Norwich City and Burnley meet in the Premier League. Burnley prospered in the club’s ten Championship meetings between 2005 and 2011, winning on six occasions. City only one two of those games and drew the other two, so despite the FA Cup result, recent history favours Burnley.

Ref watch

David Coote will be the man in the middle for Saturday afternoon’s fixture. Coote has overseen one Premier League game and two Championship games so far this season, handing out 11 yellow cards across those matches.

He was last appointed to officiate a Norwich game in March 2019 for a feisty encounter with Middlesbrough. An Onel Hernandez strike gave City the 1-0 win, with Coote handing out seven yellow cards on the day.

For this weekend’s fixture, his assistants will be Peter Kirkup and Nicholas Hopton, with Paul Marsden the fourth official. Kevin Friend and Simon Bennett will be overseeing VAR.

Match Reports

Canaries humbled in 2-0 Burnley defeat

21 September 2019

A Chris Wood brace was enough to give Burnley a 2-0 win over Norwich City at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Wood opened the scoring with a headed effort from an Ashley Westwood corner in the 10th minute, before doing the same from a Dwight McNeil cross in the 14th.

Daniel Farke named an unchanged side from City's 3-2 win over Manchester City at Carrow Road last weekend. As for Burnley, Sean Dyche rewarded Jeff Hendrick with a start after he scored the Clarets equalising goal against Brighton in match-week five, with Aaron Lennon dropping to the bench.

While clear-cut chances in the first half were few and far between for the Canaries, Teemu Pukki had City's best of the period with their first. Eight minutes in, the Norwich forward pressed James Tarkowski aggressively and won the ball off him in a dangerous area. You'd have put your house on one of the Premier League's most prolific goalscorers to find the back of the net, but Pukki couldn't get quite enough curl on his shot to trouble Nick Pope, who saved with his left foot.

Moments later, Burnley opened the scoring with an archetypal Sean Dyche goal. It was a well-worked set-piece, as Westwood picked out Wood from a corner kick, the latter hammering home his header for 1-0.

Daniel Farke was forced into making an early change for Norwich, introducing Moritz Leitner in place of Alexander Tettey, who had been carrying a knock in the game's early stages.

Following that substitution, Burnley carried on exactly how they had left off, with Wood finding the back of the net again for 2-0. This time it came courtesy of a McNeil cross from the left wing after Ibrahim Amadou had given the ball away for City. Wood lost Godfrey and headed in to double the lead.

Westwood was pulling the strings for the majority of the first half, and again forced Krul into action with a cross that Jack Cork flicked towards goal.

Norwich did look like creating chances on the rare occasions they were able to get forward, Leitner having to great chance to make an early impact after coming on with a long-shot from distance. Jamal Lewis won the ball back off Hendrick in the final third, a good spell of intricate passing followed, but Leitner's long-range strike crashed onto the post.

City began to grow into the game more in the later stages of the first half, but couldn't produce anything to show for it, with Todd Cantwell's header from Sam Byram's cross sailing over the bar, and Pukki's header from Lewis' delivery going wide.

There had been some encouraging signs from the Canaries in the first-half, but two moments of lapse in concentration defensively cost them, as they went into the break 2-0 down.

City looked lively at the start of the second half with Emiliano Buendia bending a shot just wide, but the theme of the first half was restored, with Burnley having the lion's share of chances.

Ashley Barnes played a neat one-two with Wood before curling a shot wide in the 60th minute, as Norwich invited a high press that they struggled to cope with.

Wood had a chance to bag his hat-trick on the 67th minute, but shot straight at Krul from McNeil's cross, before Farke sent Josip Drmic on to replace Stiepermann on the 75th after Leitner sent a shot wide of the post from long-range.

Leitner sent a shot from the edge of the 18-yard box just wide, but a clear-cut chance for City never materialised in the second half, with Burnley holding firm at the back. The Clarets saw out the final period of the match and took all three points.
