Manchester City Clash with Burnley in the Premier League!

The Champions aim to make an immediate return to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Burnley at the Etihad on Saturday afternoon.

Manchester City face Burnley on Saturday, with the defending champions looking to improve on their 2-2 draw with Liverpool before the international break.

After Phil Foden had drawn City level, Mohamed Salah smashed a shot home past Ederson, but City’s talisman Kevin De Bruyne replied within five minutes to ensure a draw.

A 0-2 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in their most recent European battle means that City head into Saturday’s game aiming to avoid a third game without a win in all competitions, but they remain unbeaten at home this season and have kept four Premier League clean sheets in succession at the Etihad.

The Liverpool versus Man City match may have been an exciting game to watch, but the Burnley against Norwich was exactly the opposite, as neither side could find a way through in a 0-0 draw which extended their winless runs in the top flight.

The result represented Norwich’s first point of the new season, but Burnley will be aware that they have passed up a fantastic opportunity to get their first as they struggle to break away from the other relegation candidates – and they now face a formidable opponent in Manchester City.

In terms of fitness, Ederson and Gabriel Jesus are questionable due to their late returns from international duty, with Zack Steffen set to replace in goal for the former. Ferran Torres is also out with a broken foot.

Jesus’s absence means Riyad Mahrez will likely feature on the right, and it is possible he will be joined by Ilkay Gundogan and Oleksandr Zinchenko.


Manchester City 4-0 Burnley

Burnley’s four most recent trips to the Etihad have all ended in disaster against a class-act City. This time won’t be any different – with goals from Mahrez and De Bruyne sealing their victory.
