Burnley kick off their FA Cup campaign this weekend, when they take on League One side MK Dons at Turf Moor tomorrow afternoon.

In his weekly predictions piece for BBC Sport, pundit and former footballer Mark Lawrenson backed Sean Dyche's side to secure their place in the fourth-round with a comfortable 2-0 victory.

Discussing his choice further, Lawro contended: "This is Burnley's first game under their new ownership so I am sure Clarets boss Sean Dyche will want to prove a point against MK Dons, and continue his side's recent revival.

The last time the two sides met, back in 2016, a dazzling display from the Clarets saw them hammer their opponents 5-0, with goals coming from the likes of Andre Gray, Joey Barton and George Boyd.

Last season, Burnley crashed out of the FA Cup in the fourth round, after slumping to a 2-1 home defeat to Norwich City.
