  1. Could Pope win golden glove?

    Norwich v Burnley (17:30 BST)

    Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope is in the running to win the Premier League’s golden glove award for most clean sheets.

    Both he and Ederson have kept 14. Dean Henderson, Allison and Kasper Schmeichel are on 13 each.

  2. Post update

    Norwich’s Emiliano Buendía seemed to hurt his right knee in the warm-up. He’s trying to run it off after getting treatment.

  3. ‘Not taking this lightly’

    Norwich v Burnley (17:30 BST)


    Burnley boss Sean Dyche speaking to Sky Sports: “We’re really pleased. The mentality has been superb. We know we’ll have to show all the qualities we have been doing again today.

    “Nick Pope’s continuing to develop his all-round game and not just stopping the ball going in the net. There’s people in front of him defending well.

    “We are certainly not taking this lightly and the players are ready for whatever faces us today.”

  4. Unwanted landmarks for Norwich

    Norwich v Burnley (17:30 BST)

    Norwich will end this season bottom, the first time they have finished last in a top-flight campaign since 1973-74.

    The Canaries have failed to score in a league-high 18 games this season, including 10 of the past 12.

    Norwich have lost their previous four top-flight home matches, conceding nine unanswered goals.

    They could become the first top-flight side to lose five consecutive home matches without scoring since Birmingham City in 1922.

  5. Post update

    The full-time whistles are going in the Championship.

    Hull are all but relegated, while Fulham’s promotion dream stays alive.

    Follow reaction here.

  6. First top-flight meeting in Norwich since 1976

    Norwich v Burnley (17:30 BST)

    Burnley are winless in four games at Carrow Road since a 4-1 triumph in the Championship in October 2006 (D2, L2).

    Norwich last hosted Burnley in the top flight in January 1976, winning 3-1.

  7. ‘Next time we will try to stay for longer’

    Norwich v Burnley (17:30 BST)

    Norwich boss Daniel Farke:“Burnley have shown so much consistency and resilience with one loss in 14 games, so it won’t be easy.

    “It’s important to be ourselves. Our ideas are different and we want to play on the front foot.

    “They are role models for going down and coming back up. I’m full of praise for Sean’s work. They proved you can come back stronger. Jurgen Klopp was promoted with Mainz, then got relegated, but now look where he and they are.

    “Next time we will try to be better prepared and stay for longer.”

  9. Post update

    Norwich v Burnley (17:30 BST)

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche:“Norwich have had a tough time this season, but it doesn’t make them a bad side.

    “It just makes them a side which has been trying to learn and trying to find a way through the Premier League.

    “It’s very tough. Having been through it when we went down and then came back up, it’s very tough.

    “So we don’t take anything for granted. We know we are going to have to earn the right once again and we’re going to have to do that by playing well.”

  15. Can Burnley reach Europe?

    Norwich v Burnley (17:30 BST)

    Burnley could still qualify for Europe in theory. But they need to win both games and hope teams above them all drop points.

    Only the top six will definitely qualify, with seventh spot depending on who wins the FA Cup.

  17. Early team news

    Norwich v Burnley (17:30 BST)

    Norwich are still missing injured trio Sam Byram, Grant Hanley and Moritz Leitner.

    Burnley remain without Ashley Barnes, Ben Mee, Matt Lowton and Jack Cork, while Charlie Taylor will not feature after injuring his hamstring against Wolves.

    Jay Rodriguez came off with a tight calf in that game but should be fit.
