Burnley beat Norwich City with a 1-0 victory on Tuesday at Turf Moor.

Burnley are currently 1st with 32 points from 9 matches, while Norwich sit in 7th, with 25 points from 9.

After an uneventful first half, Burnley applied pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to a goal from Jay Rodriguez, 82 minutes in. The match ended 1-0 to Burnley.
