- Norwich are winless in nine and have lost seven of those games, including each of their last three at home.

- Maxwel Cornet scored the winner against Everton and has seven goals in 19 Premier League games.
Norwich host Burnley in key relegation clash
Burnley claimed a vital 3-2 win over relegation rivals Everton in midweek and will be looking to back that up at rock-bottom Norwich on Sunday.
The Clarets have survival in sight going into the latest round of fixtures as they are now just one point adrift of safety, while Norwich look doomed and are six points further back.
The Canaries are winless in nine across all competitions and have six defeats in their last seven games, losing each of their last three at home.
Both teams have a few injury issues as the hosts are definitely without Adam Idah, while Josh Sargent and Max Aarons are rated as doubts. Burnley remain without Ben Mee, Johan Gudmundsson and Erik Pieters.
Everton win could be springboard for Burnley
Burnley’s midweek win over Everton should boost morale within the squad as it has given them a real shot at survival. Depending on how the Goodison club fare against Manchester United on Saturday, there is a chance the Clarets could move out of the bottom three with a win at Carrow Road and I feel they offer good value to claim all three points.
The East Lancashire side have managed just nine points in 14 games away from home but five of those have come in their last four trips (W1, D2, L1).
The fact Burnley came from 2-1 down to beat Everton 3-2 in midweek in a must-win game is the main reason I’m backing then to take maximum points on Sunday, but there were signs of improvement away from home prior to that win.
Goals could be at a premium at Carrow Road
Unsurprisingly, both of these teams have struggled for goals this season and I’m not expecting a high-scoring affair – despite the fact Norwich concede on average over two goals-per-game in the league.
Norwich have scored just 18 goals in 29 games and Burnley have managed 25 in their 29. This could be a clash where one goal proves the difference and a 1-0 win for the visitors could be the way to be in the correct score market.
Normally I’d avoid picking out a potential scorer when predicting a 1-0 win but Burnley’s Maxwel Cornet does appeal to add to his account. The Ivorian hit the winner against Everton, as well as providing an assist, and has enjoyed a solid season despite his side’s struggles with seven goals in 19 outings in the league.
Norwich City predicted lineup: Krul, Byram, Hanley, Gibson, Williams, Gilmour, Normann, Lees-Melou, McLean, Pukki, Rashica
Burnley predicted lineup: Pope, Lowton, Collins, Tarkowski, Taylor, McNeil, Westwood, Brownhill, Cornet, Weghorst, Rodriguez
- Norwich have lost seven of their last eight games in all competitions
