For our Man City vs. Burnley prediction, we're going for a 3-0 win for the home side.
Vincent Company makes his highly anticipated return to the Etihad this weekend as he brings his Burnley side to face Premier League giants Manchester City in the FA Cup.
Manchester City are looking to make a fifth successive FA Cup semi-final and hopefully, in their eyes, win their first FA Cup trophy since the 2018/19 season.
Most onlookers wouldn't deny that Pep Guardiola's side have been short of their usual standard this season, despite maintaining impressive results, having failed to display the kind of scintillating performances people are used to.
However, the last few weeks have been very encouraging from their perspective as they've delivered a number of performances reminiscent of vintage Guardiola Manchester City, suggesting they may well be peaking at just the right time.
They enter this game fresh off the back of a 7-0 hammering of RB Leipzig in their Champions League last 16 second leg last time out, so confidence will, unfortunately for Burnley, be sky high.
Better still star striker Erling Haaland notched five goals in that game, putting to bed suggestions of whether or not he and City are a good fit.
The result in the Champions League means City have no won five games on the bounce in all competitions, while conceding just once in that period, and are looking a frankly terrifying proposition. Burnley are not to be taken lightly but City have no excuse for not winning this.
Burnley are looking to make their first FA Cup semi-final since the 1973/74 season.
The Clarets are flying under Vincent Kompany in the Championship and have all but secured promotion back to the Premier league as they sit sit nineteen points clear of Middlesbrough in 3rd with nine games to go.
Burnley already have a history of putting Premier League sides to the sword in this competition this season having beaten Bournemouth 4-2 away from home back in the third round.
Burnley's form in general is outstanding having not lost any of their last eighteen games in all competitions, winning four of their last five.
This game is likely a step too far for The Clarets but in this competition far stranger things have happened. They can play at the Etihad without any pressure and see how events unfold, but expect this to be where Burnley's FA Cup journey ends.
