Norwich City return to Premier League action when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor this afternoon – and our reporters will be there to bring you all the updates, analysis and post-match reaction.

The Canaries are looking to build on a landmark 3-2 victory over reigning champions Manchester City at Carrow Road last weekend, which earned a second win from the opening five games of the season for Daniel Farke's promoted side.

City know they will face a very different challenge against a resolute and well organised Clarets team which Sean Dyche has established in the top flight thanks to a direct style and impressive determination.

Burnley are a place and a point behind Norwich in the Premier League table, in 14th, after bouncing back from a 3-0 home loss to Liverpool with a 1-1 draw at Brighton.

It's a first visit to Turf Moor for the Canaries since February 2011, when a late Jay Rodriguez winner earned the points for the hosts, but didn't prevent Paul Lambert's squad from going on to seal promotion.
