Ralf Fahrmann will be out for 'seven to 10 days' with a groin injury revealed Daniel Farke as previewed Norwich City's Premier League trip to Burnley.

Fahrmann has tweaked a groin in training and joins a lengthy injury list.

Only Moritz Leitner will return from the seven senior players who missed last weekend's stirring 3-2 win over Manchester City. Patrick Roberts returns to the squad after being ineligible against his parent club.

Fellow midfielder Mario Vrancic (calf) Timm Klose (knee), Max Aarons (ankle), Christoph Zimmermann (foot), Tom Trybull (ankle) and Onel Hernandez (knee) are longer term absentees.

"We had nine players out for Man City and not a lot has changed," said Farke. "Patrick is back. Grant Hanley had a normal week. He is fully fit. He would be fit to start. He has been back in team training for 10 days.

"Moritz for the past two days has been back in team training. He will travel with us to Burnley and he will be in the squad.

"On the negative side, Kenny McLean got a hit on his knee and missed one day's training but he is okay. Also Ralf Fahrmann is out for this weekend. He has had a slight groin problem since Thursday.

"He over-stretched his leg a little bit when he tried to save a shot. Not a big problem. We think seven to 10 days so maybe this game and the next one. If this game was the last one of the season or a Champions League final we would try to make him fit but with so many games we can't risk any more bigger injuries."
