Manchester City vs Burnley: Live info, Preview & Prediction

 


Manchester City vs Burnley
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, November 28, 2020
Start at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola has had one of his slowest starts in a league season. As of now, he ranks 13th in the table with just 12 points against his name, out of eight games.

The team had hopes of thwarting the challenge of defending champion Liverpool this time around, and it looked like Jurgen Klopp's men would drift off due to injuries on almost the entirety of their baseline.


But sadly, the Citizens have so far not taken advantage of it.

Needless to say, they are desperate to get back on the winning track and need a huge and convincing win to restore confidence to their camps. And they could have a chance this weekend, against one of the worst teams in the competition.

The Clarets have only one victory to their name this entire season, and have scored the fewest goals of any team in the tournament.

On top of that, they also have a worrying h2h record against this opponent.

Probably expect Manchester City to seize this opportunity and post a convincing victory.

Manchester City vs Burnley: Prediction


Pep's men lost 2-0 on the road on the final matchday, against Tottenham. Meanwhile, Sean Dyche's men won 1-0 at home last week against Crystal Palace.

However, the Clarets have been one of the worst teams in the English top flight in 2020-21. They haven't won in seven of their eight previous games, and they have stayed that way in 12 of their previous 15 games.

And in the last five months on the road, they've had a total of two wins, both of which have come against teams that are currently in the lower divisions.

On the other hand, their counterparts are one of the best teams in the world and are also among the contenders for the EPL title.

More importantly, they have an incredible h2h record against this rival over the years.

As such, expect a great Manchester City win this Saturday, and plenty of goals from them too.
