Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Manchester City vs Burnley

Manchester City

Manchester City in the last round of the Premier League drew with Liverpool, and before that lost to PSG in the Champions League, so Pep Guardiola's wards will approach the match of the new round of the Premier League with a desire to rehabilitate for their recent failures. Winning a new game could allow the Citizens to get close to the leader of the standings.

The Spanish mentor's team traditionally plays in several tournaments at the same time, but Manchester City has never had problems with rotation. There is no doubt that Guardiola will make several line-up changes in the new match, which should not prevent the hosts from taking all three points.


Burgundy has not yet won the new England Championship, gaining only three points in the starting seven rounds. Sean Ditch's team is rightly in the relegation zone and it will be very difficult for them to improve their position in the future match, because they will play away against the reigning champion.

At the moment, the situation is very bad for Burnley and if the team continues in the same spirit, it risks fighting for survival this season. Burgundy will come to Manchester with a clear desire to stand up and play reliably in defense, but it's hard to imagine that the guests will be able to play well in defense throughout the game.

Burnley will definitely resist, but if the team misses a quick ball, it may well crumble. An interesting choice for forecasting can be a bet on Manchester City with a handicap (-2.5).
