It’s FA Cup time! The oldest club competition in football is back for Premier League and Championship teams, including our beloved Manchester City. The Blues went all the way to extra time of the semifinal last season, only for Alexis Sánchez and Arsenal to break our hearts.
It seems like City are in better position to go deeper in the FA Cup this time, with a better squad and another year of Pep Guardiola football having a wonderful effect on the team. But the road to Wembley won’t be an easy one and it starts with Sean Dyche’s Burnley at the Etihad.
The Clarets have had a fantastic season in the Premier League and Dyche has done a spectacular job with a thin squad. The manager said he will rotate his side for Saturday, but Pep will surely take the game and whatever team Sean Dyche chooses seriously and will go with a strong side to get the win and move on to the fourth round.
And we want to know your lineup choice! Please fill out the attached form below with the 11 players you want to see starting against Burnley, and which formation you think Pep should choose. Again, this is not your prediction, it’s your choice. We’ll share your decisions tomorrow in our Predicted Lineups article. You can check out how others have voted under the form.
