Burnley vs Norwich City offered the precise quantity of leisure and objectives all of us anticipated on Saturday afternoon at Turf Moor: none.
Burnley have been the higher facet within the opening trade and will have been rewarded for his or her dominance with a penalty within the fifteenth minute. However, Tim Krul’s double blow to the face of Matej Vydra was unpunished.
After the penalty deal, not a lot occurred throughout the remainder of the primary half. The residence workforce had many of the ball, however what they did with it was lower than spectacular. Chooses to cross wildly into the field at each alternative, however with none high quality.
It was not enjoyable.
We obtained some hope that it may get a bit of higher within the second half by Mathias Normann, who noticed a respectable free kick from the sting of the field effectively saved by Nick Pope.
Not lengthy after Norwich created their greatest probability of the opening hour, with Max Aarons whipping a beautiful put up to the again put up to an unmarked Ozan Kabak – who ballooned his ensuing nod over the crossbar.
Moments later, the spectacular Normann scored virtually one in all the season’s objectives thus far. The midfielder rolled previous a Burnley defender, jinked previous one other after which unleashed a poisonous effort on purpose from the appropriate facet of the penalty space. The try wound over the Pope in purpose, however pulled off the crossbar afterwards.
After this probability, the recreation returned to regular, with each groups kicking their legs aside and crossing the ball goalless into one another’s penalty space.
It was not enjoyable.
Until Burnley virtually made a last-minute winner by Lowton. The hill rushed in on the again put up to lock itself on a cross, however went simply over the bar.
