Five Premier League sides face FA Cup third-round replays this week, with three of them in action on Tuesday.
Most in-focus will be Sunderland’s visit to Burnley. Usually a match like this would be considered an unnecessary obstacle, but the Black Cats need to find some semblance of form.
If David Moyes‘ group could nab a win, just their second in 10 outings, maybe they could drag those good vibes into the Hawthorns for a weekend PL match against West Brom.

Burnley has surged into the top half of the Premier League table, 10 points above the drop, and can consider the idea of a Cup run.
The other PL match sees Sam Allardyce and Crystal Palace hosting Bolton.
