Beat Crystal Palace by a minimum in the previous round, so after a long period of crisis Burnley got their first Premier League win this season. However, too black for coach Sean Dyche and his students, when they have just found some faith, they must face Man City in the next round. Against a far more realistic opponent and a guest, the door to a point against Burnley is really too narrow.

Manchester City will host Burnley at home in a Premier League round of 10 match. With a poor performance from the start of the season, the Citizens will be forced to win this match if they don’t want to drop deep in the standings.
Manchester City’s form in the Premier League this season has been underthymed, with Manager Pep Guardiola’s side having suffered two defeats and three draws in their first eight games.
Currently, The Citizens is only 13th in the standings with 12 points from 9 rounds. The gap between the reigning runners-up and premier league leaders Tottenham is already eight points and manager Pep Guardiola desperately needs a win to regain inspiration.
On the other side of the line, Burnley is no better than that. The Clarets have even suffered five defeats and have only one win this season.
Sean Dyche’s side is currently 17th in the standings with five points from nine rounds. Even the gap between this team and the red light-wielding team is only 1 point.
Both Man City and Burnley are hungry for a win to improve their position in the standings and more. However, head-to-head history is leaning towards the home side in the upcoming game as the Citizens have never suffered a home defeat in the Burnley encounters. In the past, Burnley have only won once against Man City and that has been the game since the 2014/15 season.
The upcoming match is expected to not be too difficult for manager Pep Guardiola’s team to win. However, Man City are not allowed to be subjective if they do not want to receive bitter fruit in this match, remember, a draw would be similar to a defeat for Pep Guardiola.
Man City: Ederson, Walker, Ruben Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, De Bruyne, Rodrigo, Bernardo Silva, Mahrez, Aguero, Sterling
Burnley: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Charlie Taylor, Gudmundsson, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil, Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes
