Burnley went on to ninth in the Premier League table following a 2-0 victory at already-relegated Norwich on Saturday.

Chris Wood’s overhead kick in the first half, paired with Ben Godfrey ‘s shot, was enough to hand Sean Dyche ‘s men ‘s victory over. Burnley secured a top-half finish in the Premier League with a victory over nine-man Norwich City on Carrow Road.

The Clarets have now outstripped their best results in the Premier League and have a small chance to qualify for Europe next season. The latest result came within a time of 10 minutes before the break with plenty of anticipation all in.

Chris Wood put Burnley at the half-time mark with an overhead kick in front of Norwich City, after two men were sent off inside 12 minutes.

First Emiliano Buendia saw red for an elbow on Ashley Westwood which was awarded after referee Kevin Friend went to check the VAR monitor before Josip Drmic was disqualified for a careless attempt on Erik Pieters.

Moments later Burnley took the lead when Wood seemed to be throwing an overhead kick into the net with Tim Krul not covering himself gloriously.

As expected, the Clarets bossed the second half territory, as they tried to fashion an opening.

Yet it took a single goal from Ben Godfrey to double the lead with all their possession, somehow slicing Erik Pieters’ cross into its net.

Burnley had been in the draw with Wolves without Charlie Taylor before the last time the left-back picked up a hamstring injury. He joins Ashley Barnes, Matt Lowton, Jack Cork, and Ben Mee on the treatment table while Dyche said Taylor has a chance to play in the season finale against Brighton.
