Norwich beat Burnley to keep EPL faith alive

Norwich kept alive their faint hopes of beating the drop with a 2-0 win against fellow strugglers Burnley at Carrow Road.

Dean Smith’s side took the lead in the ninth minute when a corner was only cleared to Pierre Lees-Melou on the edge of the area and his fierce drive deflected in off Josh Brownhill.

Teemu Pukki put the result beyond doubt with a lethal finish Mathias Normann’s 86th-minute pass.

Bottom-of-the-table Norwich are seven points from safety with seven games remaining.

It was a hammer blow for Burnley after their midweek win against relegation rivals Everton had renewed their hopes of staying up.

Third-bottom Burnley are four points adrift of fourth-bottom Everton, with both teams having eight matches to play.
