The German manager provided an update regarding his injured players in the press conference ahead of the Burnley match.

Norwich team shocked the world last weekend after beating Manchester City.

The team won the hearts of fans all over the world, because they beat Manchester City by playing high up the pitch a lot, and going after City’s goal.

This is a contrast to most teams which sit back and defend, hoping to avoid embarrassment.

Norwich managed six points in four matches, and The Canaries are optimistic heading to 14th place Burnley.

Daniel Farke confirmed that Vrancic is still out injured. Ralf Fahrmann is another injured player who won’t make the squad this weekend.

However, Norwich will get the help of Grant Hanley and Moritz Leitner. Another important return is that of Partick Roberts, the City loanee who spent the last season at Girona in Spain.

The left-footed winger should provide a boost from the wing, as Norwich will need all depth they have for demanding rhythm of the Premier League.

As for their weekend rivals, Burnley started the league on a bad foot. Sean Dyche’s team is yet to record a win in any competition this season.

However, Burnley do have an ace up their sleeve as Ashley Barnes already scored four goals. The fantasy league hero will need help from his teammates as Norwich team will require everything they got.

The match is scheduled to take place today at 16:00. It’s an important match for both sides as they face possible relegation battle later in the season, meaning that this is a “six-pointer”.
