Norwich 2-0 Burnley: Player ratings


Goals from Teemu Pukki and Pierre Lees-Milou condemned Burnley to a catastrophic defeat at Carrow Road on Sunday afternoon.

The defeat, a well deserved one at that, means Sean Dyche’s men now sit four points adrift of 17th-placed Everton – despite beating them in midweek.

Norwich started brightly, with Milot Rashica and Pierre Lees-Melou in particular causing problems for the Burnley defence. The former forced Nick Pope into the first save of the game in the fourth minute, cutting in from the left flank and drilling a shot toward the far corner of the net which was palmed well clear by the England goalkeeper.

The latter then bagged the first goal of the game – and of his Norwich career – in the 10th minute, coolly side-footing beyond Pope after the ball fell kindly to him on the edge of the box.

Despite needing a win, Burnley allowed Norwich to continue to dominate even after the goal. Teemu Pukki came close to doubling the home side’s advantage in the 17th minute, but saw his effort on goal from the right of the penalty area well saved by Pope.
