Norwich vs Burnley tips: Championship leaders to continue dominant run against resurgent Canaries

New Norwich manager David Wagner kicked off his return to the Championship with a vengeance, though continuing his winning run against Burnley is a whole different ball game.

When Wagner first stepped in to replace Dean Smith, Norwich were in the midst of a four-match winless run in the Championship and looked far from the promotion contenders they were touted to be at the start of the season. 

The German-American manager began his reign with a 1-0 home defeat to Blackburn in the FA Cup, and that was all he needed to analyse the situation and produce a miraculous U-turn.

Since then, Norwich have regained the ability to locate the back of the net, having picked up a 4-0 win over Preston before beating Coventry 4-2.

Eight goals in two games is an impressive run for a side which scored just six goals in eight matches prior to Wagner's arrival.

The 51-year-old, who famously took an underwhelming Huddersfield side to the Premier League during his last managerial spell in England, will take on his biggest challenge as new Norwich boss this weekend.

The Canaries welcome league leaders Burnley to Carrow Road - a side unbeaten in the league since November.

Vincent Kompany's men have dominated the competition and enter the weekend having lost just one of their last 12 games across all competitions.

Interestingly, the one team which managed to get the better of the Clarets were Manchester United, who won the EFL Cup clash 2-0 at Old Trafford.

With the exception of that sole slip-up, Burnley have been near unstoppable as they remain on a highway to Premier League promotion.

With Norwich winless on home soil since October and Burnley in rampant form, our recommendation is to back the visitors.

Burnley to win outright is currently priced at around the 7/4 mark, though our tip is to back the visitors to win and both teams to score at 17/4.
