Manchester City vs Burnley LIVE: Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden all START in FA Cup quarter-final as City legend Vincent Kompany returns to the Etihad as Clarets boss
Follow Sportsmail’s live blog for the FA Cup quarter-final clash between Manchester City and Burnley.
Erling Haaland made some history against RB Leipzig after scoring five goals at the Etihad to take his tally for the season to 39 goals in 36 games.
Can he add to that against the Championship leaders this evening?
Pep Guardiola said facing Vincent Kompany on the touchline on Saturday night will remind him of how old he has become.
The Manchester City master will go head to head with his former title-winning captain for the first time since Kompany hung up his boots in 2019 and went into management, where he has been a roaring success at Burnley.
The visitors also make a wholesale changes from the midweek away win at Hull City.
Roberts, Maatsen Cullen, Tella and Vitinho retain their place in the team.
