The Vitality Stadium in England hosts this Saturday afternoon FA Cup third round tie as Premier League Bournemouth face top of the table Championship side Burnley FC.
An in-form Burnley will look to avenge their loss to Bournemouth in this tournament two years ago as Vincent Kompany’s side look to continue their superb form this season,
Can the Clarets book a place in the fourth round over the Premier League side?
Bournemouth ply their trade in the English Premier League, while Burnley are a Championship side so on paper at least, Bournmouth should be favorites to progress in this one.

Bournemouth are struggling a little in the Premier League this season and have lost seven of their last eight games. This does not bode well as they come up against the form team of the English second tier, Burnley FC.
Gary O’Neil’s side were thrashed 3-0 away against Manchester Utd in their last game so will not be in confident mood coming into this FA Cup clash.
The hosts are the favourites here, especially considering they’re playing at home. However, these teams have been on opposite sides when it comes to form so those odds released may surprise a few football fans.
Burnley have been unstoppable in the English Championship recently; they’ve won seven of their last eight matches, including their last three and they should put up a good fight against the Premier League outfit.
Manager Vincent Kompany and his side look nailed on to get back to the Premier League after their relegation last season, and have proved many doubters wrong with their high energy performances already this season.
Furthermore, history is on the away side, with the Clarets emerging victorious in four of the last five encounters between these two. Burnley really do have a great chance of progressing to the next round in this one.
Bournemouth have failed to to find the net recently, they’ve blanked in their last four games. As a result, they conceded first in all of those matches so the signs look a little ominous for this one.
Burnley are doing well keeping the goals out at the moment and have kept four clean sheets in their last seven matches, opening the scoring in five of them.
This one looks to be a decent contest between a top Championship side and a struggling English Premier League side.
We fancy Burnley to take the win here and progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The match has a kick off time of 15:00 BST on Saturday 7th January.
