Cork Out To Clip Canaries' Wings

18 September 2019

Jack Cork is wary of the threat this weekend’s visitors Norwich City will bring to Turf Moor.

The Canaries shook current champions Man City with a confidence-boosting 3-2 last time out at Carrow Road.

And midfielder Cork knows the newly-promoted side will provide a stiff test as the Clarets look for home comforts following three of their first five league games on the road.

He said: “All the teams that came up this season have looked quite sharp and lively and Norwich don’t look out of place at all in the Premier League.

“They have started really well, scoring goals and playing good football, so It’ll be a really tough game.”

The East Anglian outfit’s star man so far has been Finnish striker Teemu Pukki.

The forward, who joined on a free transfer from Danish side Brondby in the summer of 2018, has taken the Premier League by storm with six goals and two assists, and was named August’s Premier League Player of the Month, becoming the first Norwich player to do so.

Cork added: “He’s obviously a great finisher. We’ve got to look to limit his chances and in the Premier League, you can’t allow anyone time and space.”

The fixture list has not been kind to the Clarets. and the former Swansea man acknowledges the tough start Sean Dyche’s men have faced.

“We had at Southampton at home, then Wolves and Arsenal away,” said Cork. “We can’t take our foot off the gas because we’re all experienced enough to know it doesn’t get any easier.”
