Burnley vs Norwich Match Details
The fourth round FA Cup match between Burnley and Norwich kicks-off at 15.00 on Saturday 28 January at Town Moor.
Burnley were teetering on the edge of the relegation zone until two matches ago but wins over Leicester and Manchester United have pulled them seven points and up to 13th position in the Premier League table. However, those wins were unexpected after a run of four consecutive defeats in the Premier League.
In the 2016/17 FA Cup, Burnley recorded home wins against Sunderland and Bristol City, but they lost at home to Lincoln in the fifth round. They crashed out in the third round in 2017/18 having been drawn at Manchester City, and were again unlucky to draw City away in the fourth round in 2018/19, after beating Barnsley at home in the third round.
Burnley beat Peterborough in the third round this year, when they fielded a fairly strong if not their strongest line-up.
Norwich have drawn two, won two, and lost two of their last six matches in all competitions, with one of those wins being a 4-2 victory over Preston in the third round of the FA Cup. Norwich also fielded a fairly strong line-up without risking some of their best players.
Norwich lost in a third-round replay at Southampton in the 2016/17 FA Cup, and followed that by taking Chelsea to penalties in a third-round replay at Stamford Bridge in 2017/18. Last year, they again got no further than the third round after losing 0-1 at home to Portsmouth.
