For the hosts the tie will follow a Premier League match at Manchester United on Wednesday, January 22 (8.15pm) and will be followed by a home tie against Arsenal the following Saturday.

The Clarets won at home in the third round, beating League One side Peterborough 4-2 to seal progress, while Norwich won 4-2 away to Championship side Preston North End.
