Daniel Farke previewed Norwich City’s final Premier League home game against Burnley - and we had all the key lines first from a video chat with the boss at Colney.

Norwich set an unwanted club record of eight consecutive league defeats at Chelsea in midweek. But Burnley arrive on the back of one defeat in 14 in the league and still in the mix for Europa League qualification.

Farke provided the latest fitness update on those who featured at Stamford Bridge.

Christoph Zimmermann returned to full team training on Thursday and could be involved before the end of the current campaign, but Farke suggested a start against the Clarets is unrealistic. But City have no fresh injury doubts.

Fellow defenders Grant Hanley and Sam Byram (hamstring-related injuries) were previously ruled out for the season. Moritz Leitner underwent surgery on a hernia issue this week in Germany.

Farke spoke to the media remotely from Colney.
