UEFA Europa League Qualifiers


That is all for today's live text coverage. Thanks for joining, goodbye!
Dyche's side are up to ninth in the table, two points off Wolves in the final Europa League qualifying spot having played a game more. Burnley host Brighton and Hove Albion in their final game of the season next Sunday, while Norwich face a daunting trip to Manchester City on the same day.
Burnley beat nine-man Norwich 2-0 at Carrow Road to equal their record Premier League points tally and remain on course for European football. Wood opened the scoring late in the first half after Buendia and Drmic were shown red cards for the hosts, before a comical own goal from Godfrey sealed things 10 minutes from the end.
90' + 4' ANOTHER SAVE! Bardsley catches his shot well but Krul is equal to it with a couple of strong hands. It would have been a heavier defeat for the hosts if not for their goalkeeper.
M. Vrančić
A. Tettey
90' + 3' Tettey is off and Vrancic on in his place in this final substitution of the match.
90' + 1' Four minutes have been added on at the end of this final Premier League home game of the season for Norwich.
90' GOOD GOALKEEPING! Vydra is played through on goal by Bardsley. He has only Krul to beat but cannot squeeze it in, with the Norwich keeper doing well to race off his line and further close the angle.
89' Zimmermann recovers well to slide in on Rodriguez and not only win the ball but also earn his side a goal-kick. He is hobbling along at the moment but seems fine to see out the match.
88' Burnley do not really look in any rush to score a third goal. It is job done for Dyche's men, who were helped on their way by red cards for Buendia and Drmic in the opening 45 minutes.
A. Idah
O. Hernández
86' Teenage Norwich forward Idah is introduced in place of Hernandez for the final five minutes or so.
85' POPE TESTED! Hernandez takes a long pass in his stride and tries to catch out Pope with an early shot from the edge of the box. It takes a telling deflection off Tarkowski and it is a good stop from Pope to keep his clean sheet intact.
84' SAVE! Rodriguez tries to curl the ball into the top-right corner with a first-time shot. He does not get enough bend on it, however, and Krul gathers with both hands.
82' It looks as though Godfrey, who has had a pretty decent match overall, was trying to control Pieters' cross, only to guide it into the bottom-right corner of his own net. Burnley can now relax.
B. Godfrey
Own Goal
80' GOOOOOAAAAALLL!!! NORWICH 0-2 BURNLEY! The visitors finally find the all-important second goal - and it comes via a Norwich player! It is a real shocker from Godfrey, the centre-back side-footing Pieters' cross past his own goalkeeper with absolutely nobody around him.
M. Vydra
C. Wood
79' Wood, who as things stand will be the match-winner thanks to his first-half strike, makes way for Vydra.
79' Brownhill has a pop from range but cannot find the target. Burnley are struggling to find that killer second goal.
78' Pieters plays the ball into Rodriguez inside the box but the striker is unable to bring it under control.
77' Burnley again play the corner short. They work a better angle for Pieters to swing the ball in towards Tarkowski, who is unable to guide a header on target.
L. Rupp
T. Cantwell
76' Rupp takes over from Cantwell in the second of Norwich's substitutions.
76' Aarons completely misses the ball and Pieters unleashes a shot from 25 yards. Zimmermann throws himself at it and makes a decent block, albeit at the expense of a corner.
75' Norwich City have lost each of their last four Premier League home games by an aggregate score of 9-0. In top-flight history, only two clubs have ever lost five in a row at home without scoring - Sheffield Wednesday (April 1920) and Birmingham City (February 1922).
73' Burnley defender Tarkowski is okay to play on after receiving some treatment. Dyche will not want to take any unnecessary risks, though, so that is one to monitor.
72' Play resumes following the second cooling break of the contest. Tarkowski lunges in on McLean and cleanly wins the ball, but it comes at a cost as he stays down. Wood puts the ball out of play for the physio to come on.
70' GOOD SAVE FROM KRUL! Rodriguez's goal-bound shot hits Zimmermann and forces Krul into a smart reaction save with his leg. Norwich are working extremely hard to keep it at 1-0.
68' Burnley work the corner short and it is played into the path of Bardsley 30 yards out. He blasts goalwards but is unable to find the target.
67' Norwich have done well to ensure there is still just the one goal between the sides with a little under 25 minutes to go. Another cross into the box is helped behind by Krul for a corner.
65' Brownhill's cross makes it all the way to Brady. The substitute midfielder hits it first time and the ball ends high in the stands.
63' The hosts win a free-kick out wide. McLean sends the ball in and Bardsley heads it into the air before one of his team-mates hooks it clear.
62' Norwich have been down to nine men since the end of the first half, remember, so it is little surprise that they have had just 38 per cent of the ball since the restart - down from 56 per cent before the break.
R. Brady
J. Guðmunds­son
60' Dyche turns to his bench for the first time today by bringing on Brady for Gudmundsson.
59' It is one-way traffic now at Carrow Road. Rodriguez's powerful drive hits Zimmermann in front of goal and the pressure is relieved on Norwich when the the whistle sounds for a foul.
57' Burnley work the ball around in the final third and McNeil clips a cross towards Rodriguez, who cannot quite get on the end of it at full stretch. Dyche's men are knocking on the door for a second goal.
55' Godfrey makes an important block to prevent Rodriguez scoring a second goal for Burnley. The visitors are in control of the match now, as you would expect given the numerical advantage.
54' Dyche will want his side to score a second goal to make certain of a win that will equal Burnley's records points tally in a Premier League campaign. As long as it remains just 1-0, the nine men of Norwich have a chance of snatching a point.
52' SHOCKER! Wood is picked out by Westwood around eight yards from goal. He has more time than he thinks but goes for a first-time shot which he slices horribly off target.
51' Chris Wood has now scored 13 goals for Burnley in the Premier League this season - the most by a Clarets player in a single campaign in the competition.
49' SHOT! Pieters' powerful strike from 25 yards is pushed over the bar by compatriot Krul. It was pretty central so that is a save Krul was always expected to pull off.
47' Gudmundsson's cross from the right just before half-time led to the breakthrough goal. This latest one is not as good, though, and Krul has a routine catch to make.
46' RESTART! Burnley get us back up and running at Carrow Road. The visitors lead 1-0 and have a two-player advantage.
C. Zimmermann
T. Klose
46' Zimmermann is brought on in place of Klose at half-time for his first appearance since mid-February.
Norwich are the first team to have multiple players sent off in the first half of a Premier League game since August 2015. Farke will have to change things around at the interval, with damage limitation now likely to be the order of the day.
Burnley lead nine-man Norwich 1-0 thanks to Wood's goal late in the first half. It was a half devoid of any real action until Buendia was dismissed 10 minutes before the interval for hitting out at Westwood. Drmic was then shown a red for a challenge on Pieters, two minutes before Wood's overhead kick gave the visitors the lead.
J. Guðmunds­son
45' + 5' Gudmundsson marks his first league start since October with an assist. He wasted no time in delivering from the right, but full credit to Wood for converting with an acrobatic finish.
C. Wood
45' + 5' GOOOOAAAAALLLL!!!! NORWICH 0-1 BURNLEY!! It goes from bad to worse for Norwich! Gudmundsson sends in an early cross from the right and Wood beats Krul with an overhead kick, the ball clipping the post on its way in. What a superb goal from the Burnley striker, even if it does come off his shin.
45' + 4' The red card stands following a check by the VAR officials. Drmic was rash with the challenge and ultimately had to go, even if the contact itself was minimal.
J. Drmic
Red Card
45' + 3' NORWICH DOWN TO NINE! Drmic goes over the top of the ball and catches Pieters. He does not make all that much contact with the Burnley left-back and referee Kevin Friend will review the decision.
45' + 1' Three minutes have been added on at the end of a so-far goalless first half at Carrow Road.
44' PENALTY APPEAL! Wood clips his own heel and goes to ground when trying to meet a cross at the front post. He claims he was caught by Klose and it goes to a VAR check as play continues in the meantime, and it is eventually determined no penalty should be awarded.
42' GREAT SAVE! McNeil's free-kick takes a big deflection off Hernandez in the Norwich wall and Krul has to readjust his body. The Dutchman somehow gets a hand to the ball and helps it over the bar.
40' SAVE! Wood and Rodriguez link up well and the latter's drive from outside the box is pushed aside by Krul, who is now finally starting to be worked. The flow of the game has changed since that red card incident.
39' BLOCK! Wood's shot inside the six-yard box is blocked by Aarons. Ten-man Norwich are having to dig deep now as we approach the end of the first half.
37' The slow motion replay of the Buendia incident may have made it look worse, but the referee is justified in showing the midfielder his second red card in English football, the first coming against QPR in April 2019.
E. Buendía
Red Card
35' BUENDIA SENT OFF! After a lengthy VAR check that included a check of the pitchside monitor, referee Kevin Friend reaches into his back pocket to show Buendia a red card. There was definitely some intent from the Norwich midfielder, having been annoyed by Westwood's initial foul.
34' Buendia brings his arm down with force and catches Westwood on the neck. The referee is checking in with his VAR colleagues to see if it warrants a red card...
33' Norwich have already managed more shots today (four) than they did in the entire game against Chelsea, which is something for Farke.
31' Wood uses his arm to control the ball inside the Norwich penalty area and that is spotted by referee Kevin Friend.
30' There is more riding on this game for Burnley than Norwich, given that they can still snatch a European spot, but they have been stuck in first gear so far. Wood and Rodriguez have had 17 touches between them in the opening half an hour.
28' Westwood's cross drops right on the edge of the six-yard box. Neither Wood nor Rodriguez are anywhere near it, though.
27' Buendia slips as he whips a left-sided free-kick into the box. Burnley successfully defend this latest Norwich set-piece.
25' Gudmundsson is penalised for backing into Norwich keeper Krul from the Burnley corner. It is time for the first cooling break of the match at Carrow Road.
23' Burnley are slowly growing into the match but they have been pretty disappointing so far. Norwich have come closest to scoring through Godfrey's header around five minutes ago.
22' That was a decent stop from Pope, who is on course to record the most clean sheets of any Premier League goalkeeper this season. Rodriguez drags a shot wide up the other end as Burnley look to grab a foothold in the match.
20' SAVE! Godfrey flies in to meet a left-sided corner that takes a touch on its way through. Pope sticks out an arm to keep it out and Tettey's powerful shot from the follow-up is blocked by Tarkowski.
19' Norwich have had 61 per cent of the ball but have yet to test Pope in the Burnley goal. They have had just one attempt of any note - Godfrey heading wide from a corner - while the visitors' only effort came via McNeil's off-target shot.
17' OVER! Burnley's first attempt of the match is a pretty poor one from McNeil, the winger breaking forward and rifling over the crossbar from range.
15' Returning Burnley midfielder Gudmundsson catches Cantwell and a free-kick is awarded to Norwich, but no card is shown. This match has yet to get going so far, it is fair to say.
13' Norwich are playing with the freedom of a side that has already been relegated from the Premier League. Burnley have offered next to nothing so far in an attacking sense, although that is probably all part of their gameplan.
11' Farke's side have dominated possession in the opening 11 minutes. They win another corner after a shot from range deflects off Tarkowski, but Pope plucks the ball out of the air once it is swung into the middle.
9' Norwich turn down the chance to shoot from the edge of the box three times. They work the ball out to Aarons down the right and the cross is cut out for a corner, which Godfrey heads well off target.
7' Burnley are unbeaten in six Premier League games (W3 D3), scoring exactly once in each match. Indeed, Sean Dyche's men have won more Premier League points (12) than champions Liverpool (11) since the restart.
5' Norwich have made a fairly fast start to the match. They turn over possession just inside their own half but Drmic is unable to make the most of the counter-attacking opportunity as he gives the ball away.
3' The corner is a good one and Cantwell meets it clean on the volley, but it hits a Burnley body in the box and is cleared away.
2' Hernandez carries the ball forward down the left and plays in Lewis on the overlap. The young full-back's cross is cut out for an early corner.
1' KICK-OFF! Norwich, who are now left playing for pride, get us under way at Carrow Road in the only Premier League game of the day.
Both sets of players are making their way onto the field and kick-off is now just a few minutes away. This match will be played behind closed doors, as will every other Premier League game between now and the end of the season.
Norwich are unbeaten in their last four home games against Burnley in all competitions since 2006. This is the visiting side's first trip to Carrow Road in the top flight since 1973-74.
Gudmundsson returns to Burnley's starting line-up for his first Premier League start since October in the visitors' only change from their 1-1 draw against Wolves on Wednesday. Charlie Taylor is the player to make way after picking up a hamstring injury last time out, meaning Pieters reverts to left-back.
Farke has made one change to Norwich's starting line-up on the back of their narrow defeat to Chelsea - Buendia returning to the XI in place of Rupp in attacking midfield. Zimmermann is back in the matchday squad after recovering from a back injury that has ruled him out since last month's restart.
Subs: Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Matej Vydra, Jimmy Dunne, Joel Mumbongo, Robbie Brady, Max Thompson, Anthony Driscoll-Glennon, Mace Goodridge, Josh Benson.
BURNLEY XI (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Phil Bardsley, Kevin Long, James Tarkowski (c), Erik Pieters; Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Ashley Westwood, Josh Brownhill, Dwight McNeil; Chris Wood, Jay Rodriguez.
Subs: Adam Idah, Christoph Zimmermann, Akin Famewo, Josh Martin, Lukas Rupp, Mario Vrancic, Teemu Pukki, Marco Stiepermann, Michael McGovern.
NORWICH XI (4-2-3-1): Tim Krul; Max Aarons, Ben Godfrey, Timm Klose, Jamal Lewis; Alexander Tettey (c), Kenny McLean; Todd Cantwell, Emiliano Buendia, Onel Hernandez; Josip Drmic.
Unlike their opponents, Burnley still have targets in mind ahead of this penultimate match of an impressive campaign. Sean Dyche's side are unbeaten in six matches, drawing the last two of those, and require one more victory to equal their best ever points return in a Premier League campaign.
Norwich are bottom of the division and had their relegation fate confirmed last weekend with a 4-0 loss at home to West Ham. Daniel Farke's men have since lost 1-0 at Chelsea to make it eight league defeats in a row either side of the three-month hiatus.
