Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Carrow Road will host Sunday’s relegation six-pointer between Norwich City and Burnley. Following six consecutive defeats, Norwich City played out a goalless draw with Brighton in their last league match to give fans something to cheer about. Norwich City are seven points behind the safe zone, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the rock-bottom side.
Adam Idah remains on the sidelines with injury, as well as Max Aarons, Ozan Kabak, and Joshua Sargent, while Brandon Williams is a major doubt. The Clarets, on the other hand, extended their losing run to four games against Man City. Since Burnley are desperate to return to winning ways as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. The likes of Mee, Pieters, and Gudmundsson are likely to miss the game with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Grant Hanley):
Grant Hanley is Scottish footballer who plays for Norwich City as defender. Hanley was born in Dumfries, Scotland, on November 20, 1991 and he started his youth career at Queen of the South. After ending his spells with Crewe Alexandra and Rangers, the Scottish player joined English club Blackburn Rovers, where he started his senior career.
After scoring eight goals in 183 appearances for the Riversiders in league matches, he moved to fellow English club Newcastle United in July, 2016 for an undisclosed fee. Grant Hanley, though, made no more than 10 appearances for Newcastle United in the Championship before joining Norwich City. The 191-cm-tall defender made his full international debut for Scotland against Wales on in May, 2011.
He scored his first goal for the Scotland national football team in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Wales. His contract with Norwich City should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since.
Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season.
Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
