Norwich City had two players sent off and scored an own goal as they fell to a 2-0 loss to Burnley at Carrow Road on Saturday. 

Emiliano Buendia was shown a straight red card in the 35th minute for striking Ashley Westwood with his arm after referee Kevin Friend watched a replay of the Argentinian’s reaction to the Burnley midfielder’s challenge. 

Norwich were then reduced to nine men when Josip Drmic lunged in on Erik Pieters, with Chris Wood rubbing salt into the wound by scoring an overhead kick in the attack from the resulting free-kick. 

Daniel Farke’s team held firm for most of the second half but, despite being under no pressure, Ben God

By inflicting Norwich’s ninth straight Premier League loss, Burnley extended their unbeaten run to seven games to move two points adrift of sixth-placed Wolves.
