Burnley 1/1 to beat Norwich City in Saturday’s Premier League contest

Competition: Premier League

Market: Burnley win

Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

Two sides who already find themselves battling it out at the foot of the standings, Burnley will welcome Norwich to Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, left heartbroken on the road last weekend as they eventually had to settle for a single point, there is no doubt that Burnley will be desperate to build off of that performance. Despite throwing away the lead and having a last-gasp goal ruled out, the Clarets did snatch a 2-2 draw away at Europa League outfit Leicester. However, while Sean Dyche’s side might have extended on their EFL Cup adventure with a 4-1 romp against Rochdale earlier in the month, they are battling it out at the foot of the table. Managing to muster just a pair of points since opening the 2021/22 campaign, Burnley will also be desperate to find some form on home soil. Despite landing a 2-0 victory the last time they faced off against Saturday’s opponents, Dyche’s side have remarkably failed to win any of their last 13 straight top-flight fixtures at Turf Moor.

As for the visitors, while Burnley might have managed to find a boost away at Leicester last weekend, the same cannot be said for a Norwich side who are in the midst of another Premier League nightmare. Only coming under more scrutiny since making their top-flight return once again over the summer, Daniel Farke’s side appear to be freefalling their way towards an immediate Championship return. Last seen putting in another toothless display as they were hit with a deserved 2-0 loss away at Everton, the former Borussia Dortmund coach is yet to see his side land a single point so far this season. More worrying, continuing on from their last Premier League run, Norwich have remarkably lost each of their last 16 straight top-flight contests. With Burnely landing a 2-0 win when the two sides last faced off, we’re backing a similar home win here.
