Robbie Brady will be out for a "substantial recovery period" after tests confirm the Republic of Ireland international suffered a serious knee injury on Saturday.
There have been growing concerns as to the severity of the problem since Sean Dyche admitted, following the 1-0 defeat at Leicester, that the 25-year-old had been taken to hospital: "It looks more serious than not serious to me," he said. After spending a couple of days in care, medical experts have diagnosed a tear of his patellar tendon, which effectively ends his campaign. Brady is scheduled to go under the knife and a return in 2017/18 appears highly unlikely: "Robbie will have surgery to repair a patellar tendon tear and will be out for a substantial recovery period. He will be given all the time and care he needs on his recovery and supported throughout from all of us at Burnley Football Club." Fraser Forster sustained a similar tear back in March 2015, an injury which kept the Southampton goalkeeper sidelined for 298 days. Dec 6 - 7:45 AM

Burnley will be sweating over the fitness of Robbie Brady after the midfielder was forced off in the first-half of Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Leicester City.

Brady scored and assisted against Bournemouth on Wednesday and picked up where he left off in the opening half an hour. However, Brady's match was cut short following a nasty-looking collision with Harry Maguire. The Republic of Ireland international was carried from the field on a stretcher and replaced by Scott Arfield. While the Clarets remained a threat throughout, efforts from Steven Defour and Gudmundsson were denied by Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. While the defeat sees Burnley slip just one spot to seventh in the table, there will be concerns over extent of Brady's injury. After the match, manger Sean Dyche said: "We're awaiting news, but we think it's more likely serious, than not serious."

Burnley jumped into sixth place in the Premier League with a 2-1 win against Bournemouth on Wednesday.

Robbie Brady proved to be the man of the match, influencing both goals with a goal and assist. The Irish international started in the 36th minute when he rumbled down the wing and found forward Chris Wood in the box with a perfect cross for the first goal. Then, in the 65th minute, Brady scored what proved to be the match winner by curling his shot past Asmir Begovic for an impressive goal.

Burnley's penchant for results at home hit a wall today, as they conceded two unanswered goals to Manchester United in a 0-2 final.

The match began in typical Turf Moor style, with Tom Heaton making a couple of big saves in the first 20 minutes while the Claret attack were creating chances, mainly by Robbie Brady, who delivered several crosses over the contest. Andre Gray look the likeliest to finish one of those chances, but the Clarets failed to find an end product. Meanwhile, the fortress that is Turf Moor was penetrated, first on a swift counter-attack and then a second goal was conceded after a loose ball in front of Heaton was smashed in by Wayne Rooney. That put the match out of reach as United were in cruise control throughout the second half. Five points above relegation, one imagines Burnley may need at least one more positive result in their final four matches.

Burnley found themselves trailing early but Robbie Brady opened his account with the Clarets scoring a fantastic free kick and the two sides played to a 1-1 draw.

The five game win streak at Turf Moor is over but Burnley proved yet again that their ground inspires its players to put in a hard-working shift and the persistence payed off by grabbing a point against the front runners for the title. They conceded the opener only seven minutes in but Joey Barton drew a foul a few yards behind the box and Brady, making his first start, smashed a curling effort into the top corner. Michael Keane anchored a stout defense that left Chelsea frustrated when they were on the ball. If Burnley continue to perform at home, they should enjoy another season in the top flight.

Burnley made a key acquisition on deadline day by agreeing to a deal with Norwich City that sees Robbie Brady join the Clarets for a fee of around £13m.

This is a record fee signing for the Clarets and should help them tremendously in their bid to remain in the top flight. Brady has top flight experience, playing as a left back, wing back or midfielder position, so he gives Sean Dyche plenty of options. There will be no clean sheet potential in the FPL game as Brady is classified as a midfielder, but he still carries value in all other formats and could be an FPL prospect at some point this season, with his ability to contribute crosses and set piece work. He should find himself in the XI regularly and immediately.

Republic of Ireland looked to be in line to upset host France with an early goal by Robbie Brady, but things fell apart for them in the second half and France would score twice unanswered to win, 2-1.

It was the perfect start for Republic of Ireland when Southampton's Shane Long was tripped in the box by Paul Pogba, allowing Brady to step up for a spot kick. He fired it home with great accuracy and pace. Ireland outplayed France in the first half, winning 50/50 challenges and putting pressure on a shaken French defense. Everything changed in the second half though as Ireland began to tire and France would put two past them in quick succession, then were given a man advantage when Shane Duffy was sent off trying to keep another goal from scoring.

Robbie Brady has cemented his status as an Irish folk hero for generations with his winner against Italy to send Ireland on to the knockout stages of Euro 2016.

Brady scored in the 85th minute of what looked for certain to be a nil-nil draw with group winners Italy on the final day of the group stages. The goal sent all of Ireland into a frenzy and ensured that one of the best stories of the tournament - Ireland's fantastic supporters charming the French countryside - will continue into the next round of the tournament at least. Even Roy Keane was smiling. Ireland will face hosts France in the early match on Sunday in Lyon.

Reports are linking Leicester City with a move for Norwich City winger Robbie Brady in the summer transfer window.

The Premier League champions are active in the Premier League rumor mill this summer with an influx of funds from a first-place finish and their Champions League debut in the upcoming season. However, Claudio Ranieri assured the club will not splash the cash on superstars, instead relying on the same scouting and transfer system that got them to the title. Brady would represent a buy in that category with Norwich looking to recoup the £7 million they sent Hull City for the Irishman last summer. Brady made 36 appearances, recording three goals and two assists, while being relegated for the second straight season.

Norwich City has approved the sale of Nathan Redmond, Robbie Brady and Cameron Jerome in order to raise funds.

The Canaries were the latest one-and-done team in the Premier League, the only team this season to suffer the drop after being promoted the previous season. The club has reportedly hired two external services to find a home for the starting trio in the belief that they can profit most from their respective sales. Redmond remains the hottest name on the list this summer with Crystal Palace, Stoke City, West Brom and West Ham all reportedly interested in the 22-year-old. Brady, formerly of Hull City, has also proved his worth in the Premier League, scoring three goals as a left-back and left-winger in 31 Premier League appearances.

Robbie Brady returned from a calf injury in time to give Norwich City the only goal they would need to grab three massive points in a 0-1 win over West Bromwich Albion.

Certainly not the marquee match of the weekend, but don't tell that to Norwich supporters as the Canaries win for the first time since the day after New Year's Day. It was not a pretty performance but the three points lifts them, for now, out of the relegation zone. After both sides showed some threat in the opening twenty minutes, the match slowed down considerably after Dieumerci Mbokani went to ground for a few minutes of treatment. Norwich struck five minutes into the second half, when a Matt Jarvis ball fell into the path of Brady who then slotted it past Ben Foster. More impressive for the Canaries, they managed to keep their second clean sheet in a row, after only keeping one clean sheet in their first twenty-nine matches. The win makes tomorrow's Tyne-Wear derby all the more vital for both Northern England clubs but they each have two games more than Norwich in hand after today.

Norwich City received some bittersweet news concerning its defense as Robbie Brady is expected to return while the club waits on the status of Ryan Bennett.

Brady was not present for the club's hearty 0-0 draw with Manchester City last weekend after sustaining a calf injury but Bennett played a major role in the center of the club's defense. However, Sebastien Bassong will likely get the start at center-half anyway after making his return to the bench last weekend after missing time with an injury. Both Bassong and Brady have trained all week ahead of the matchup with West Bromwich Albion and should be candidates for your fantasy team defense with a clean sheet on the cards.

Norwich City continued to drop points with an uninspired 1-0 loss at the hands of Swansea City today, with two key players suffering injuries in the process.

Norwich have now lost six straight road matches and have not won a match of any kind since a 1-0 win over Southampton back on January 2nd. That pretty much means the moves they have made in the January window have not paid off, including Steven Naismith who, despite scoring in his debut, has not helped the club to wins and he was removed with a knock today. Robbie Brady, a regular in the side, also limped off inside the first half-hour today. It only gets tougher next week when they host Manchester City. There is very little fantasy appeal coming from the Canaries at this stage.

Manager Alex Neil confirmed members of the club have been fighting off the flu this week as the Norwich City midfield has taken the hardest hit.

Midfielders Robbie Brady and Graham Dorrans missed the midweek match against Tottenham due to illness and Neil said that Dorrans will also miss the weekend clash with Aston Villa. However, the manager said he was hopeful that Brady will recover in time for a critical match between relegation candidates as Alexander Tettey will also be absent for the next two games after picking up his 10th yellow card of the season on Tuesday. Martin Olsson filled in for Brady at left-back, but it's a bit of a toss-up this weekend on who will start. It looks best to stay away from the pair as Norwich's defense has been in flux since adding some new faces during the transfer window.

Alex Neil will be disappointed to lose the points in the final minute, but very satisfied at another good away performance…

It is a mark of Norwich’s early season progress that they left the pitch gutted at not having won. It is still just the one defeat on the road since manager Alex Neil took over and that is a very useful habit to have in the PL. Norwich’s counter-attacking style suits away days and Neil is rotated his team set-up cannily. Hand-picking player-maker Wes Hoolahan’s matches has so far been perfectly executed, resulting in five of the team’s 11 goals being created or scored by the 33-year-old. He is not the only star of Norwich’s midfield though. Robbie Brady was the star turn this weekend, with Nathan Redmond again excellent (and scoring). All three are still available to PL.com managers for well under £6m and that looks good value from here. There are darker periods to come as the season progresses, but right now the Canaries are flying high.
