Burnley will be hoping that the magic of the FA Cup will be in their favour today as they travel up to Sunderland for the third round.
The Clarets will be taking on The Black Cats for their first FA Cup game of the season and will be hopeful of clinching a result away from home, seeing them progress into the fourth round of the competition.
It was only a matter of weeks ago that Sean Dyche and his men welcomed David Moyes’ side to Turf Moor for a Premier League game, in which Burnley were emphatic with a 4-1 victory.
However, the test today could prove to be slightly more tricky as both sides look to kick on and make something of the FA Cup campaign.
Dyche will be looking to make good use of his squad and some players could be given fresh opportunities to play.
Here’s how we expect Burnley to line up.
