Manchester City vs. Burnley (FA Cup): Starting Lineups & TV Information

The most famous cup competition in the world begins today for Manchester City, as the Blues enter the competition at the third round stage with an all-Premier League match against Burnley.

Not since the famous 2011 win over Stoke, ending a trophy drought lasting over three decades, have City lifted the FA Cup, but with Pep Guardiola at the helm anything seems possible.

It’s not the easiest of games to start though with Sean Dyche’s Burnley always up for a fight, and the two teams collide this afternoon at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City XI: Bravo, Danilo, Otamendi, Stones, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Gundogan, D Silva (c), Sane, Sterling, Aguero

Burnley XI: Pope, Lowton, Long, Mee, Taylor, Gudmundsson, Cork, Westwood, Hendrick, Barnes, Vokes
