Burnley News and Form
Even though Burnley are have only taken a W1 D1 L1 record in this season’s Premier league, they have been superbly competitive. After opening with a comfortable home win over Southampton, Burnley deserved a point at least instead of defeat out at Arsenal, and then they were only denied a win at Wolves on the weekend through an 87th minute penalty. So there is some good stuff being played by them at the moment.
They will be facing Liverpool at Turf Moor in the Premier League on the weekend, Saturday lunchtime in fact, so is unlikely that they are going to send out their strongest side for this one. The Clarets have lost six of their last seven League Cup fixtures, and made a exit in last season’s second round as they fell 2-1 away at Burton Albion. Burnley are on a three match losing streak at home in the competition.
Sunderland News and Form
So does Burnley’s lack of form/interest in the League Cup give Sunderland the chance of an upset? Sunderland who were one of the promotion favourites from League One last season, lost out in the play-off final against Charlton. They have made a strong start to this new League One campaign winning three of their four matches played (D1). In the first round of this season’s League Cup they made the trip to Accrington Stanley and produced a 3-1 victory.
The Black Cats have scored at least two goals in each of their last four league fixtures. The one negative against them is that they have conceded exactly one goal in all five games across all competitions this season. The Mackems have won five of their last seven away games in the League Cup although their last trip to the Premier league side ended in a defeat at Southampton in 2016.
