Burnley vs Bristol City

If Burnley play anything like a full strength team against Bristol City, they should be good enough to win. Their home form this season has been some of the best in the Premier League.
Bristol City are in all sorts of trouble at the moment and are unlikely to be prioritising the Cup, given their current league position. Burnley are strong at home and are doing well enough in the league to justify a good run in the Cup. Can’t see past a comfortable home win here. Burnley’s home form has been outstanding in the league this season and they’ve defensively strong so I can’t see any reason why they can’t continue that tomorrow.

Burnley have a very good home record, the 4th best in the Premire League whilst Bristol have a poor away record with 2 wins, 2 draws and 10 losses. This is a cup game but on this basis the hosts look to have a very decent chance.
Burnley have a great home record while Bristol have a dismal away record. Burnley have won 8 of their 12 at home in the league while Bristol have lost 10 of their 14 away games in the Championship. Sometimes league form counts for nothing in the cup but I think Burnley will be too good at home here.
