Match Preview: Burnley v Norwich City

24 January 2020

Norwich City resume their Emirates FA Cup campaign this Saturday (3pm) with a trip to Burnley in the fourth round.

Both sides overcame lower league opponents in the last round with City beating Preston North End 4-2 and Burnley easing past Peterborough United by the same scoreline.

Here’s our match preview ahead of City’s first fourth round match in seven years:

The opposition

City and Burnley will meet for the second time at Turf Moor this season on Saturday, with the Clarets getting the upper hand on City’s previous visit.

First-half goals from Chris Wood put the Premier League fixture to bed early on, despite City hitting the woodwork and testing goalkeeper Nick Pope throughout.

Since then, Sean Dyche's men have enjoyed an up and down period of form with three lots of back-to-back victories sandwiched between ten defeats.

After floating just above the drop zone heading into 2020, consecutive wins over Leicester City and Manchester United have eased Burnley's relegation worries.

Their win at Old Trafford on Wednesday, thanks to goals from Wood and Jay Rodriguez, was their first there in 57 years.

In terms of injury news, Burnley will be without Ashley Barnes and Phil Bardsley for the match. Johann Berg Gudmundsson is also a doubt.

Ref watch

Michael Oliver will be the man in the middle for Saturday's cup tie. He's refereed 19 domestic fixtures in 2019-20 and handed out 63 yellow cards and one red card.

Ian Hussin and Richard West will run the line, with Kevin Friend the fourth official. Paul Tierney and Scott Ledger will oversee VAR.
