Burnley vs Norwich Betting Preview | 21 Sept 2019

Returning from the international break in some style and clinching a famous 3-2 win over Manchester City last weekend, Norwich will look to make it two in two when they make the trip to Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

While their victory over the defending champions might have ended back-to-back defeats since marking their Premier League return, Daniel Farke’s men have gained a long list of admirers for their attacking approach.

Although Norwich may have marked their return from the international break with a much-needed morale boost, the same cannot be said for a Burnley side still in the midst of a struggle.

Just managing to scrape a point off of Brighton on the South Coast last weekend, the Clarets have won just one of their opening five top-flight appearances.

You might also be interested to know that the Canneries picked up a 4-1 win when they last met Burnley back in 2012 and Farke’s side can be found at 13/5 with SkyBet to leave Lancashire with three points this weekend.

Burnley’s struggles continue

Needing a 91st minute Jeff Hendrick equalizer to snatch a point away at Brighton last weekend, Sean Dyche’s side have continued on a very worrying run of form.

Despite opening the 2019/2020 campaign with a very impressive 3-0 win over Southampton, the Clarets have failed to win any of their previous four appearances and have now suffered back-to-back 3-1 defeats in front of their own supporters.

With Dyche calling on a string of drastic improvements before Norwich make the trip to Turf Moor this weekend, the Clarets have also seen their top-half ambitions take a huge dent with the bookmakers.

Despite dreaming of landing a top-10 finish after their opening weekend performance last month, Saturday’s hosts are now priced at 9/2 with Bet365 to secure a top-half finish come May, with only Sheffield United and Newcastle holding higher odds.

If Dyche’s men are to end their barren run in Lancashire, then he will be looking for Ashley Barnes to refined his goalscoring touch.

Despite failing to find the net in back-to-back appearances, the 29-year-old already has four Premier League goals to his name and can be found at 8/5 with Ladbrokes to find the net on Saturday.

Teemu Pukki continues to shine

Although back-to-back defeats against West Ham and Chelsea may have left many in East Anglia starting to sweat, Daniel Farke’s men bounced back in some style last weekend.

Picking up a famous 3-2 win over Manchester City and becoming a firm favourite with the neutrals across England, the former Borussia Dortmund coach has his sights firmly set on extending Norwich’s top-flight status come May.

Saturday’s guests are now priced at 5/2 at SkyBet to finish in the bottom three, ahead of Sheffield United, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Watford, and Brighton.

While the Canneries might still be looking for their first clean sheet since making their top-flight return over the summer, their attacking approach has gained them a long list of admirers.

One man who has really epitomized Norwich’s free-scoring start to the campaign is leading marksman and attacking talisman Teemu Pukki.

Once again finding the net against the defending champions and also recording back-to-back strikes while away on international duty, the Finland sharpshooter already has six Premier League goals to his name.

You will be interested to know that Pukki can be found at 8/5 to extend his free-scoring run this weekend.
