All three East Lancashire sides could face Premier League opposition in the FA Cup fourth round.

Accrington Stanley will be at home for the fourth consecutive round after wins over Colchester, Cheltenham and Ipswich Town so far.

They will face either Southampton or Derby at the Wham Stadium later this month in the fourth round.

Burnley have been handed the toughest possible tie, as they face a trip to one of the other 14 Premier League sides left in the draw.

The Clarets, as they did in last year’s third round, face a trip to Premier League champions Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s side were 5-0 winners when they faced each other in October. City won last year’s FA Cup tie 4-1 and have won each of the last four meetings at the Etihad Stadium.

Rovers face a third round replay against Newcastle United next week, with the winners of the game at Ewood Park facing a home match with Premier League side Watford.

Fourth round ties will be played over the weekend of January 26/27.

Burnley made it a hat-trick of wins on their way in to round four in a controversial third round tie against League One outfit Barnsley.
