Daniel Farke says that he will make changes to the squad to face Burnley in the fourth round of the FA Cup, the first time that City will have been in this round of the competition for seven years.

This will be the second time that Norwich have had to make the long trip to Burnley this season, having lost the League game there 2-0 thanks to those two goals inside the first 20 minutes, courtesy of Chris Wood.

City were competitive though, striking the woodwork and making goalkeeper, Nick Pope earn his corn that day.

Speaking to the assembled media at Carrow Road on Friday lunchtime, Head Coach, Daniel Farke says that he will be making changes as Norwich contest their third game in seven days. The side’s efforts at Spurs were impressive, albeit ultimately without reward but that has most likely taken a toll on energy levels.

Todd Cantwell will miss the trip to Turf Moor with a hamstring strain and Kenny McLean took a knock to his hip at Tottenham on Wednesday night. Ibrahim Amadou has a slight knee problem but Mario Vrancic is available again.

Another player available again is goalkeeper, Ralf Fahrmann who seems likely to replace Tim Krul between the sticks to give Krul a well earned rest.

There was plenty of talk from Farke about wanting to get into  the fifth round and trying to do as well as they can in the competition. He also spoke a little about transfers, saying that he does not expect anymore business to be done in this transfer window. That is obviously at odds with this morning’s report from Sky Sports about Luxembourg international, Danel Sinani. You can read all about that here and make your own mind up.

There was plenty of praise for the job that Sean Dyche has done and continues to do, managing the Clarets. After a bit of a rollercoaster season the home side will be looking to make it three wins in a row, having just beaten both Leicester City and Manchester United in consecutive matches.

Score that thought they were beaten 3-0 at Chelsea, so let’s hope the rollercoaster is on its way down again this weekend.

There was also a few words about Adam Idah, with speculation currently circulating that he is a loan target for several EFL clubs.

This game will come too soon for Emi Buendia but Farke gave an update and he is hopeful that the scintillating Argentinian playmaker will be back to face Newcastle next weekend.

If you’re going then have a great day out and stay safe.
