Uncomfortable trip for Clarets

We’ve all been counting down the days until the return of club football. All of us but Burnley players, that is. The Clarets make what most surely be their least favourite trip of the season this weekend as they head to the Etihad.

Burnley have been beaten in their last seven visits to the Etihad, while they’ve lost the previous eight meetings with Man City in all competitions by an aggregate score of 30-1. Things are even worse at the Etihad, where they’ve lost 5-0 in each of the last four visits.

Weakened City still full of flair

The international break hasn’t been kind to City, with Ederson and Gabriel Jesus only just back from international duty. Ferran Torres played through injury for Spain, which leaves him out for six weeks. With Ilkay Gundogan and Oleksandr Zinchenko both missing, City are a bit depleted here.

However, they still boast an impressive front line with Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden in support. There’s plenty for Burnley to fear still, with Riyad Mahrez a consistent pain in the Clarets’ side.

He’s scored eight times against Burnley, including seven strikes in five games against them for City and five across the last two meetings at the Etihad. We’re backing another strike for Mahrez this weekend.

City to run out comfortable winners

Bar their 0-0 draw with Southampton, City have been incredible at the Etihad this term. They opened up with 5-0 wins over Norwich and Arsenal, while they put six past Wycombe and RB Leipzig. That run should continue this weekend with the Clarets history at this ground.

City have scored 27 times across their last six at home to Burnley, winning each of those by at least three goals on very occasion. Given the scoring potential of this City side I expect another heavy win for the hosts. The hosts are great value to score over 3.5 goals, but I’m going with City -2 alongside a 4-0 win.

Man City possible starting line-up: Steffen; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Rodri, Foden, Sterling, Mahrez, Grealish

Burnley possible starting line-up: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Collins, Pieters; McNeil, Westwood, Brownhill, Cornet; Wood, Vydra
