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

The Canaries’ wretched top flight season culminates with a trip to the dethroned champions and Champions League hopefuls.

Norwich’s relegation was confirmed earlier this month, but they will bid to avoid extending a club record run of consecutive league defeats to 10.

Emi Buendia and Josip Drmic are suspended after red cards against Burnley.

Timm Klose (hamstring) went off at the interval and Alex Tettey complained of pain in his knee after the final whistle. Both will miss out this weekend although Farke reiterated neither are longer term concerns.

Farke provided the latest injury update on the other players who featured against the Clarets.

Grant Hanley and Sam Byram (hamstring-related injuries) were previously ruled out for the season. But Farke delivered a cautiously optimistic fitness bulletin on Byram, who is back in light training.

Moritz Leitner underwent surgery on a hernia issue last week in Germany.

Farke spoke to the media remotely from Colney.
