FA Cup, 4th Round
When: January 26, 2019, 08:30 PM, IST
Where: City of Manchester Stadium (Etihad Stadium)
BUR vs MCI Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Manchester City continue to aim for the unprecedented quadruple as they face Burnley test in the fourth round FA Cup match at City of Manchester Stadium (Etihad Stadium) on Saturday night (IST).
Pep Guardiola can still achieve what no other manager in the English top-flight football has ever done, and that is the unprecedented quadruple. The Cityzens have already qualified to the knockout stage of the Champions League, secured a place in the EFL final, and are just four points adrift of league leaders Liverpool as things stand in the Premier League.
But the FA Cup has so far eluded Guardiol and he will be itching to get this famous trophy under his belt. Manchester City’s performance in this competition is far less than convincing and their 2010-11 win is the only FA Cup title victory since the 1960-61 season.
In the last seven seasons, City have been knocked out by Wigan Athletics three times, including 2012 final, by Manchester United in round 3, Middlesbrough in round 4, Chelsea in last-16, and Arsenal in the semifinal.
City are in a very good form at the moment. They are on a seven-game winning streak since suffering the back-to-back loss against Crystal Palace and Leicester City in the Premier League.
Burnley meanwhile have finally hit some form after winning four times in the last five matches in all competition.

Manchester City FANTASY PREDICTION:
Manchester City faced Burnley in the same competition last year as well, winning 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium in the 3rd round. The Cityzens are heavy favourites in this game as well and anything other than a home win will be a disaster for the reigning English Champions.
A win for the Blues.
