- BT Sport Extra 2

- Fulham have failed to score in three of their last four home matches, while Burnley have failed to register in three of their last four on the road.
Game of few chances likely
Two teams short on genuine goalscorers face off at Craven Cottage on Sunday, when Fulham welcome Burnley to the capital for an all-top flight FA Cup fourth round clash that promises to deliver little excitement.
The Clarets should arrive in London in high spirits following their remarkable mid-week win at Liverpool, where a solitary Ashley Barnes spot-kick ended the Reds long-spanning unbeaten record at Anfield.
Burnley’s robust defending was again key to their success, and their narrow triumph was the 11th time in 13 matches involving the Clarets where under 2.5 goals were scored.
Fulham’s 2-1 reverse to Man Utd last time out meanwhile, ended a stretch of eight games involving the Cottagers where under 2.5 goals hit the net – and the same market appeals for Sunday’s cup clash.
Scott Parker’s men failed to find the net in three of their last four matches on home soil, while Burnley were unable to make an impact on the scoresheet in three of their last four away tests.
With chances expected to be at a premium when the teams’ toothless attacks face off in London, our 0-0 correct score prediction sees this one drifting into extra time.
