Norwich kept slim hopes of Premier League survival alive with a 2-0 win over Burnley at Carrow Road on Sunday.

Norwich kicked off proceedings with a spring in their step, with Teemu Pukki, Milot Rashica and Pierre Lees-Melou combining effectively.

The early intensity paid dividends with just 10 minutes on the clock when Lees-Melou shot through six Burnley players, aided by two deflections and a poor clearance by James Tarkowski, to fire the hosts ahead.

The Canaries were hanging on in the dying embers of the first interval with Burnley attempting three shots in quick succession – each blocked courageously by the home side.

But Dean Smith’s side maintained intensity after the break, with Mathias Normann finding Pukki unmarked in the box in the 86th minute, with time to compose himself and find the bottom-left corner.
