Manchester City vs Burnley: FA Cup clash sees former captain Kompany return to Etihad



Burnley on the rise under Kompany

Manchester City host Burnley in the FA Cup today. Pep Guardiola’s side look like the favourites for the competition as a whole but face an interesting challenge up against their former captain Vincent Kompany and his side. Kompany has the Clarets destined for a return to the Premier League at the first time of asking after a stunning rapid-fire rebuild at Turf Moor. Burnley are almost unrecognisable to the team who went down and approach this meeting full of confidence.
