Norwich vs Burnley prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out today?

Norwich take on Burnley this afternoon in a Premier League which, on the face of it, has very little at stake.

Burnley are currently 10th in the table with almost no hope of qualifying for European competition, while Norwich are bottom and are already relegated to the Championship.

Even so, Burnley have some impressive post-restart form to continue, form which could see them beat their record Premier League points tally of 54 in the 2017-18 season, when they finished seventh, needing four points from their remaining two games.
