Manchester City and Burnley both take a break from their superb Premier League campaigns this week, turning their attention to the FA Cup third round. The Clarets travel to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday having already lost there once this term; but the 3-0 defeat was quite a light one in comparison to some other sides.

City boss Pep Guardiola has always said he admires the FA Cup, and with his side going so strong in all competitions this season, he will want to keep up the trend. They reached the semi finals last season and will be keen to go a couple of steps further this season.

Sean Dyche’s side are in a great position to target a cup run, but they’ve been unlucky with the draw. We think this one will be a home win.


Manchester City’s Premier League form dropped last week when they only managed a draw at Crystal Palace, ending their bid for the European record of consecutive wins. But they did return to winning ways against Watford on Tuesday night and hold a 14-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

Burnley sit in the top seven, just six points away from the ‘magic’ 40 point mark that usually confirms safety from relegation. A European push isn’t out of the question, either.

Guardiola may make some changes to his side, but he will be without striker Gabriel Jesus, who picked up an injury at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

Burnley have no fresh injury concerns, with goalkeeper Tom Heaton without a confirmed return date and the only absentee.
