Well well well. What a week that was. I don’t think even the most optimistic of Burnley fan could have predicted that we would pull those results out of the bag.

But that’s the thing with this team, they give you the highest of highs when you least expect it.

However if I can perhaps prize you away from watching that sensational Jay Rodriguez goal on loop, we have something important to discuss.

No, not the potential of Charlie Taylor getting to the Euros with Gareth Southgate’s England side this summer or welcoming the return of the phenomenal Ben Mee.

It’s the FA Cup.

Today the Clarets host Norwich City at Turf Moor for the second time this season, as the two Premier League sides meet in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Just seven days ago, I could not have been less enthusiastic about this tie, and not because I don’t love the cup (I do), but because the financial rewards of maintaining Premier League status have shifted priorities to being more results-focused.

And I was quite comfortable with Sean Dyche prioritising survival over silverware. But that was last week … and a week is a lifetime in football.

Norwich will not fancy this game, make no mistake about it.

The first time these two sides met back in September, the Canaries were riding high on the back of a fantastic victory over current champions Manchester City and boy did we bring them back down to earth with a bump.

They have only managed two league wins since that date and are firmly in a relegation battle, rooted to the foot of the Premier League table and six points adrift.

Perhaps this is naïve on my part, but I am not expecting a strong Norwich team this weekend, as surely their priority will be giving themselves any chance of league survival? 

A long cup run “should” be right at the bottom of their wish list.

The Clarets, on the other hand, now sit on 30 points which, in mid- January, is pretty comfortable.

I remain convinced that teams will need 40 point to survive this year, but the task of 10 points between now and May 17 should allow the Clarets the luxury of going for it in the cup.

Not only that, but momentum does wonders for the psychology of any professional athlete and with Arsenal next in the league at the start of February, why not take the fight to them as well.

Wembley and Europe anyone?
