Moritz Leitner and Patrick Roberts return to the bench for Norwich City at Burnley this afternoon.

The Canaries have stuck with the same starting XI which beat Manchester City in an epic 3-2 win over the champions at Carrow Road last weekend, with Ibrahim Amadou continuing alongside Ben Godfrey in central defence and Grant Hanley remaining on the bench.

Norwich make two changes to their substitutes though, bringing fit-again midfielder Leitner back into the squad - having missed one game with a calf issue - as well as winger Roberts, who was ineligible against his parent club last weekend.

Ralf Fahrmann has a groin problem so Michael McGovern is the back-up keeper and academy striker Adam Idah misses out on a place in the squad, despite travelling to Lancashire.

Sean Dyche makes one change for the hosts, bringing in experienced Republic of Ireland midfielder Jeff Hendrick in for former England and Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon, after the Irishman had come off the bench to score a late equaliser at Brighton last weekend.

Kevin Long and Charlie Taylor also come on to the bench for the Clarets, with Ben Gibson and Phil Bardsley not involved.

NORWICH: Krul; Byram, Amadou, Godfrey, Lewis; Tettey (C), McLean; Buendia, Stiepermann, Cantwell; Pukki. Subs: McGovern (GK), Hanley, Heise, Leitner, Roberts, Srbeny, Drmic

BURNLEY: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee (C), Pieters; Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, McNeil, Barnes, Wood. Subs: Hart (GK), Taylor, Bardsley, Long, Lennon, Rodriguez, Vydra

REFEREE: David Coote

VAR: Kevin Friend
