Adrian Clarke looks at key tactical points and players who can be decisive in Matchweek 7.
There is optimism at Norwich City that the introduction of loan signing Normann could be the catalyst for an upturn in form.
Filling that void is easier said than done, but Normann has the talent to shine in the top flight, so Burnley will need to watch him carefully on Saturday.
The Norwegian has a wide range of passing, disrupts opponents with his work rate and aggression, and is also a goal threat.
Under Daniel Farke, Norwich look to slip the ball between the lines in a pass-and-move style.
Normann has complemented their approach as he is technically sound in possession, but he adds particular value with his ability to pick out accurate and incisive forward passes.
On his debut against Watford, 10 of his 31 passes were classified as "long", and one of those was a classy assist for Teemu Pukki.
The 25-year-old's wonderful one-touch pass in behind the defence showed he has the vision to pick out the striker's intelligent runs.
There is every chance this will become a trend.
As the table below shows, Normann is the most likely of Norwich's midfielders to stretch opponents with a progressive forward pass.
To date, 43.3 per cent of his passes go forward, and 25.4 per cent are long.
Burnley like to press inside their opponents' half, so they will need to be wary of balls knocked in behind their back four on Saturday.

Another standout feature of Normann's game is his desire to shoot from distance.
The midfielder loves to drive forward down the middle of the pitch before firing off efforts from outside the box.
Last weekend at Goodison Park, he forced Jordan Pickford into a pair of high quality saves.
*Minimum of two starts
Of all the Premier League players with at least two starts this season, Normann has averaged the most shots per match from outside the area.
If he can continue his strong start, Norwich will have every chance of getting their season up and running at Burnley this weekend.
