Predicted Norwich City XI to face Burnley in the Premier League

Norwich City pulled the rabbit out of the hat to register a famous 3-1 victory over reigning Premier League champions Man City at home last week and the injury-stricken Canaries will be looking to continue their good form when they make the trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley on Saturday.

Daniel Farke’s side climbed up to 13th in the standings with their giant-killing heroics last week but they will need to be at the top of their game once again this time around to outwit Burnley away from home. 

Burnley currently sit 14th in the standings and Sean Dyche’s side will fancy their chances of moving further up the table after Jeff Hendricks’ late goal secured a point for them in a 1-1 draw against Brighton last week.

Timm Klose (knee), Christoph Zimmermann (ankle), Onel Hernandez (knee), Tom Trybull (ankle), Max Aarons (ankle), Mario Vrancic (calf), Moritz Leitner (calf) and Patrick Roberts are all on the treatment table and ruled out for the weekend clash.

Manager: Daniel Farke 

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted XI

1. Tim Krul (GK)

The Dutchman made a number of key saves to keep Man City at bay in the last game and the Canaries will need him to come up with something similar on Saturday. 

2. Sam Byram (RB)

The former West Ham man was handed his first start in the Premier League this term and his performance against Man City could be a sign of better things to come. 

3. Ben Godfrey (CB)

The towering young centre-back has enjoyed a bright start to his career in the top-flight and the Canaries will be hoping for him to continue his good work at the back.

4. Ibrahim Amadou (CB)

The Sevilla loanee featured in an unfamiliar centre-back role against Man City and put in a splendid performance, which should prompt Farke to continue with him in the eleven.

5. Jamal Lewis (LB)

The tricky full-back has started each of Norwich’s first five games in the Premier League thus far and he should be amongst the starters for this one as well. 

6. Kenny McLean (CDM)

The Scotsman will be in high spirits after scoring the opener against Man City last week and a grave injury crisis in the midfield should see him retain his spot. 

7. Alexander Tettey (CDM)

The veteran turned back the clock with a standout performance against one of the best sides in Europe last week. 

8. Emiliano Buendia (RW)

The Argentine playmaker has by far been Norwich’s most creative player in the Premier League thus far and his vision and work-rate are indispensable assets to the team. 

9. Todd Cantwell (LW)

The youngster has already made eyeballs turn with his stellar run of form early in the season and he will be looking to get himself another goal this week after finding the net in the previous outing.

10. Marco Stiepermann (CAM)

The towering attacking midfielder is yet to hit the ground running in the Premier League and he will be expected to hit the ground running sooner rather than later. 

11. Teemu Pukki (ST)

The talismanic Finnish international has already announced himself in an emphatic fashion in the Premier League and he will be looking to add to his tally of 6 league goals on Saturday.
