Man City vs Burnley Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Man City can put their derby defeat behind them as they host Burnley in an English Premier League fixture at Etihad Stadium. The hosts have a solid home record and enough quality to see off the Clarets on Saturday.

Manchester City Form

Man City had 73% possession in their 2-0 loss in the derby against Man United but failed to create clear chances. City will be pleased to return to the Etihad where they have maintained a solid record this season. 

City’s form in front of their fans has seen them claim seven wins in their last nine home matches. Pep Guardiola’s men have produced some emphatic results at the Etihad this season claiming a 4-0 victory over Brighton and beating Watford 8-0.

Manchester City News

Striker Sergio Aguero is a major doubt for Man City after picking up a knock in the Manchester derby. Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne and defender Aymeric Laporte are making good progress but Saturday’s match could come too soon for the duo.

Burnley Form

Burnley are coming off a 1-1 home draw against Tottenham in their previous Premier League fixture. They took an early lead through Chris Wood but were pegged back by Spurs five minutes after the restart.

The result ended a run of two straight wins which has lifted the Clarets into the top half of the table. 

Sean Dyche’s men have been poor on the road having failed to win in 11 of their last 15 away matches in all competitions. Burnley have suffered some heavy defeats in that run, losing 5-0 to Tottenham and falling 3-0 at Chelsea. 

Burnley News

Burnley are still without striker Ashley Barnes who remains sidelined alongside winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson. Defenders Matt Lowton and Ben Gibson are also expected to miss Saturday’s match through injury.

Man City vs Burnley Head to Head

City claimed a 4-1 victory in the reverse fixture at Turf Moor. Gabriel Jesus netted a brace with Rodri and Riyad Mahrez also on target while Robbie Brady got the consolation for the Clarets.

Man City vs Burnley Match Up

Gabriel Jesus has impressed whenever he is called upon and will be the one to watch with Sergio Aguero a doubt. The striker scored a brace in the reverse fixture and will be confident of getting on the score sheet on Saturday.

Man City have not been convincing at the back recently keeping just one clean sheet in their last four matches. They are likely to struggle against the power of Chris Wood up front for Burnley.
