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

The bottom two meet at Turf Moor with City looking for their first points of the new season at the seventh attempt.

Farke provided a full fitness update on those who featured in the 2-0 defeat at Everton.

Billy Gilmour missed training on Wednesday with a foot issue but Farke is optimistic the Chelsea loanee will be available this weekend.

Todd Cantwell is back in training after missing the past nine days for personal reasons. But Farke revealed on Friday he has a slight Achilles issue and will not come back into contention until after the international break.
