Burnley welcomes Norwich in the 4th round of the FA cup. The question is to which team this comes as the biggest distraction. We can't really expect that either of these teams will reach the final games so they will surely rotate a lot to preserve the freshness. Burnley has more to lose I guess as they have some good momentum behind them and they will want to preserve this. They beat Leicester at home and Manchester away which are huge results. They play well at home but only against the weak teams. Norwich is the weakest team and they will rotate a lot. They have 1-2-9 in the league and they lost the past 6 at this ground.

Odds are dropping in this encounter on the home win to happen as the hosts managed to put together two wins in a row at this moment scoring 5 goals in those two wins first a win against Laval with 2-1 at home and last round a 3-1 win on the road at Creteil, but they remain just 4 points above the relegation zone at this moment but they are not facing a tough opponent at all as the guests are the first club above the relegation line right now with 22 points.
Watford come into this game in better form, but, as the old adage goes, form goes out the window in the FA Cup. While Pearson would like to advance, he won't play a team that he needs for Premier League survival.
