Norwich City were brought back down to earth at Burnley in a Premier League defeat that included another couple of injury scares to add to a long list.

The extent of the injuries to Tim Krul (back) and Alex Tettey (groin) will become clear over the coming days, but with seven senior players already sidelined for the game at Turf Moor head coach Daniel Farke may have to dredge his available resources even deeper for this weekend's trip to Crystal Palace.

Burnley's ferocious high press disrupted City's attempts to play out from the back, while the Clarets' also exposed defensive vulnerability. How does Farke address both moving forward to tighten up at the back while retaining the Canaries cut and thrust in forward areas which brought those thrilling Carrow Road league wins over Newcastle United and memorably Manchester City?

Palace will be looking to bounce back themselves from shipping a 95th minute equaliser at home to 10-man Wolves on Sunday.
