Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Etihad Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Manchester City and Burnley, who face each other in the FA Cup round 4. The Citizens are enjoying yet another successful season and we predict that they are going to stick to their attacking style of play against Burnley. Pep Guardiola’s men look unstoppable in 2019 and we are positive that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. It has to be noted that they hammered Rotherham United 7-0 in round 3 of the FA Cup. The Clarets are likely to rely on their defence in the Etihad Stadium clash, but we do not believe that they are capable of preventing Man City strikers from scoring. David faces Goliath in the fourth round of the FA Cup and we are positive that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Manchester.
Highlighted Player (Vincent Kompany):
Vincent Kompany is regarded as one of the best defenders in the world of football. The Belgian ace was born on 10 April, 1986 and he is capable of playing as centre back and defensive midfielder. Kompany began his youth career at Anderlecht and in 2006 he arrived to Germany to play for Bundesliga side Hamburger SV. Two years later he signed for Manchester City for a fee of £6 million. The Man City defender has won two Premier League trophies with the Etihad Stadium outfit (2011/2012, 2013/2014) and he made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season with the Citizens. Vicent Kompany was named the Premier League player of the season in the 2011/2012 campaign and it has to be noted that he was awarded the captaincy of Man City back then. The Belgium international married Carla Higgs in 2011, who gave birth to their two children (daughter and son).
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since.
Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season.
Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
