Premier League Football Prediction – Manchester City vs Burnley

Premier League Football Prediction – Manchester City vs Burnley

Manchester City take on Burnley in their first Premier League game back after the international break on Saturday afternoon. With City hoping to get back on track here, we offer our Premier League football prediction – Manchester City vs Burnley.

Before the interval, Pep Guardiola’s team (football prediction) salvaged a point in a dramatic 2-2 draw with Liverpool (football results). Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne scored for the visitors, while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah scored for the hosts.

After seven matches, the reigning champions are third in the standings. But  Guardiola is likely to be one of many coaches affected by the punishing schedule.

Team News

Manchester City

  • Due to their late return from South America, Gabriel Jesus and Ederson will not be accessible. And Zack Steffen will take over in goal for the latter on Saturday.
  • Both Ilkay Gundogan and Oleksandr Zinchenko are close to returning to Manchester City after injury layoffs.

Manchester City possible starting lineup: Steffen; Cancelo, Laporte, Dias, Walker; Foden, Rodri, De Bruyne; Grealish, Torres, Mahrez

Burnley

  • Sean Dyche will be hoping for Ben Mee and Maxwel Cornet’s comeback from injury for Saturday’s match against Manchester City.
  • Burnley had a boost when Connor Roberts returned to the first team for Wales during the international break. He’ll be vying for Matt Lowton’s starting spot in this game.
  • Before the break, Kevin Long and Jay Rodriguez returned from injuries, but Dale Stephens is still out.

Burnley possible starting lineup: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Cornet, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Wood, Vydra

Match Facts

  • In their last four home games, Man City has kept a clean sheet (Premier League).
  • Burnley has lost nine of their last ten games (Premier League).
  • On the other hand, Man City have not lost once in their past six games (Premier League).
  • Burnley has given up at least two goals in each of their previous three away games (Premier League).

Prediction

  • Burnley should provide the ideal opponent for Manchester City to reclaim their winning ways. The four times Burnley has visited the Etihad before this, Pep Guardiola’s team has triumphed 5-0 (the football news).
  • And Burnley is still without a league win this season, so it is unlikely to happen this weekend. Previously, they’ve lost seven of their last eight games on the road against City.

Our Prediction: Manchester City 4 – 0 Burnley
