Chelsea will not punish Drinkwater

Chelsea will not punish Drinkwater Danny Drinkwater will not be punished by Chelsea after he was allegedly attacked by a group of men outside a Manchester nightclub, Sky Sports News understands.

Norwich were brought back down to earth with a 2-0 defeat against Burnley at Turf Moor. A week after their brilliant victory over Manchester City, the Canaries were undone by two early Chris Wood goals – his first of the season – and remain without a point on the road since returning to the Premier League.

Burnley continued their good recent run with a comfortable win at Brighton. Chris Wood scored twice before Ashley Barnes wrapped up all three points from the spot as the Clarets moved out of the bottom three.

Chris Wood scored twice as Burnley eased to a deserved 2-0 victory against Norwich at Turf Moor.

The result never really looked in doubt with Wood scoring twice in four minutes to give the dominant hosts an early lead after just 14 minutes.

Norwich went close through Teemu Pukki and Moritz Leitner, whose shot struck the post in the first half, but Daniel Farke's side were a shadow of the team that sealed a stunning 3-2 victory over Manchester City last weekend.

Defeat leaves Norwich, who drop down to 15th, without a point on the road since returning to the top-flight, while a deserved three points see Burnley, who picked up their first win since the opening day of the season, rise to seventh.

Hazard helps lift early pressure on Zidane

Hazard helps lift early pressure on Zidane Zinedine Zidane watched his side almost squander a three-goal lead, but the debut of Eden Hazard was a shining light for Real Madrid.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche will make a late decision on whether to include Johann Berg Gudmundsson after his calf injury. However, Danny Drinkwater is not yet fit enough to return from an ankle problem. Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke is still without a host of players.

Burnley started with intensity but it was Norwich, who had the first clear cut opening of the game as Teemu Pukki won the ball off James Tarkowski before racing through on goal. The Finland international opened his body to curl the ball into the far corner, but Nick Pope stuck out a boot to make a superb block.

It turned out to be a crucial save as minutes later it was Burnley who took the lead with Wood rising highest at the near post to head home Ashley Westwood's excellent corner.

It went from bad to worse for Norwich, who were forced into bringing on Moritz Leitner in place of the injured Alexander Tettey, as the lead was doubled when Wood turned in Dwight McNeil's cross for his second goal in four minutes.

Brighton 1-1 Burnley: Jeff Hendrick STUNS Seagulls with injury-time equaliser to snatch late draw There was an uncanny symmetry between Brighton and Burnley as they resumed their scrap to ensure they are on the Premier League fixture list for next season. Both started the day on four points secured in the same fashion – one win and one draw. Both had faced the main title contenders – Brighton hammered 4-0 at champions Manchester City while Burnley were convincingly beaten 3-0 by Liverpool, last season’s runners-up and the Champions League winners. © Getty Only Burnley’s superior goal difference kept them apart. And predictably, there was nothing to separate them after 90 minutes.

Only a short while ago many Burnley supporters might have had a home fixture against newly-promoted Norwich down as a banker, though that was before Teemu Pukki announced himself to the Premier League and before last weekend’s wholly unexpected toppling of champions Manchester City.

Norwich almost found a way back into the game through substitute Leitner but his dipping shot, which deflected off Jack Cork and beat Pope, rebounded back off the post and away to safety.

Norwich improved towards the end of the first half and an excellent passage of play ended with a shot from Emiliano Buendia that was blocked by Ben Mee.

Buendia then curled wide of the target as Norwich looked for a response at the start of the second half, but Burnley were untroubled and looked just as likely to add a third of their own.

Excellent build-up play between Barnes and Wood saw the former curl a shot just past the upright, while Wood shot straight at Krul, spurning his best chance for a hat-trick.

In the end Norwich could not find a way past the brilliantly organised Burnley defence. Leitner went close again with a shot from 18 yards that flew wide of the far post, but the home side closed out what was a comfortable victory.

Mane: Salah feud is forgotten

Mane: Salah feud is forgotten Sadio Mane insists his feud with Mohamed Salah is forgotten after his furious outburst two weeks ago. Liverpool forward Mane reacted angrily to Salah choosing to shoot rather than pass to him during the 3-0 victory over Burnley on August 31. After being substituted, the Senegalese international threw his training shirt on the floor and gesticulated towards his team-mate, but declared on Canal+ that the pair have buried the hatchet. © Getty (Photo by Nigel French/PA Images via Getty Images) He said: "With Salah? It's forgotten. "Sometimes you have to say things face to face.
