NOR Vs BUR Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Norwich City get ready to play out their last Premier League matches for atleast a season
Norwich City might have ended up being officially relegated only a couple of gameweeks back but it was a plight which everyone knew was awaiting the club at the halfway mark only. Ever since their 4-2 trouncing at the hands of Liverpool in gameweek 1, it was clear that Norwich City needed to overhaul their underachieving defence if they were to survive in the Premier League this season.
While the side did little to address that skittling ambit all throughout the season, the attacking side of the game also regressed and crumbled for the club. A complete collapse from the side saw them shambolically stumble their way towards bottom place in the competition, one which became their home across the entirety of the season.
Relegated for the 8th time in their lifespan, the club created an savoury record this season by becoming the most relegated club in the Premier League. This has truly been a harrowing campaign for the club, one where they have been left disgruntled and despondent with the side being rendered completely obsolete this season.
While Norwich City were impressive against Chelsea the last time around with the club looking to end their Premier League sortie on a flourish. They’ll look to bolster their defence up once again today and defend in numbers but will eventually fade as the tie runs down its course to be handed over a defeat by their hot Burnley side.

NOR Vs BUR Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Despite failing to keep cleansheets in his previous encounters, Nick Pope is still in charge of his own destiny. Leading the Golden Gloves race with the 14 cleansheets this season, the player has been massively hailed for his impressive brand of goal-keeping, one which sees him sit atop of the most number of cleansheets in the competition.
NOR Vs BUR Dream11 Defenders
It’s not only Pope though who has contributed to making Burnley’s defence into such a juggernaut. This is a side which has typically been extremely astound when it comes to the defensive side of the game, a team which has been traditionally regarded as one of the most overwhelming backlines in the marquee league.
And when they take on a Norwich City side which has had nothing to offer in the attacking side of the game ever since the league has restarted, this looks set to be an extremely easy cleansheet for Burnley. This discourse sees us indulge in a trio from the side with us beginning with CB James Tarkowski owing to the player’s endeavours of sending down thumping headers in the attacking slot as well.
Phil Bardsley and Kevin Long join up from the visiting team to see us color our facet entirely in Burnley’s colors for the outing.
NOR Vs BUR Dream11 Midfielders
The most torrid defence in the competition, when Norwich City come across Burnley today, they are bound to ship goals as usual. Its become customary for the club to be hit for goals left, right and centre, a predicament which has seen them leak a calamitous 68 goals, the highest of any club.
And Ashely Westwood in particular will love his time out on the pitch today with the player set to utilise his ability to layup the ball to add to his 6 assists in the league. We are partnering him up with Dwight McNeil, a partnership capable of accruing a hoard of goals for the visiting team.
Norwich City elsewhere will see us opt for a trivalent of picks, ones which have managed to impressive in an otherwise laxity riddled side. We begin with Todd Cantwell with the player’s 6 goals seeing Liverpool up as suitors.
Emenalo Buendia will become the second selection from the side with the player having registered the most number of assists for the club this term. He are pairing him up with Kenny McLean with the CDM managing to emerge as a shining diamond in a torrid defensive setup owing to his tenacity and knowhow of the game.
NOR Vs BUR Dream11 Strikers
After a short burst of life from Teemu Pukki as he propelled himself into the Premier League stage with a slew of goals in the opening exchanges of the season, the player has completely gone amiss. However, despite his appalling displays, the 11 goals and 3 assists see his hand in the maximum number of goals for the club to make him too hard to let go off.
Chris Wood scored a dubious penalty the last time around but it didn’t matter to the player in the least with the side rescuing a point against Wolverhampton with the strike. He’s leading the club’s scoring ranks this term, a player who has managed to compensate for a side which has been sent reeling by a slew of injuries to its attacking names.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With a cleansheet imminent for him today, Tarkowski will captain our side while Wood is the vice-captain.
