Norwich City 0 Burnley 2


By Burnley FC
July 18 2020

Chris Wood bridged a 44-year gap and also helped the Clarets create some modern-day history as they guaranteed a top-10 finish in the Premier League.

 Wood claimed his 13th league goal of the season to become the highest Burnley scorer in a top-flight campaign since Peter Noble and Ray Hankin posted that total in 1975/76.

 The New Zealander’s fine finish in first-half stoppage time also set up a 15th Premier League win of the season – confirmed by Ben Godrey’s late own-goal – to set a new high for the Clarets.

 And with the nine-man Canaries, who had two men sent off before half-time, unable to offer any sort of response on their way back towards the Championship, Sean Dyche’s men were also able to match the 54-point record Premier League tally they chalked up when finishing seventh two seasons ago.

 That was enough to earn a place in the Europa League – something that remains mathematically possible again this time around.

 But the Clarets will need their rivals to drop points in mid-week before finishing the season at home to Brighton next Sunday when they will look to extend a remarkable unbeaten run to eight games.

Well done again. Europa league at this moment would be a curse imo.
