Burnley V Manchester City – Team News And Predicted XI Plus Betting Odds


Manchester City are high in confidence following back to back wins against Tottenham and Manchester United in the league.

Pep Guardiola’s side don’t look like dropping points currently and will be confident heading into this afternoon’s match at Turfmoor.

Burnley are coming off the back of a good result of their own after holding Chelsea to a 2-2 draw on Monday evening and Sean Dyche’s men will certainly try to make things difficult for City.

The away side will likely be without Fernandinho after the Brazilian sustained a knee injury in Wednesday’s 2-0 win against United.

Ilkay Gundogan also sustained a knock at Old Trafford and remains a doubt for this afternoon. Kevin De Bruyne (hamstring) and Claudio Bravo (Achilles) remain out of contention.

Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Face Burnley:

Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Zinchenko, Bernardo Silva, Gundogan, David Silva, Sterling, Aguero, Sane

For Burnley, the Clarets will have Phil Bardsley back after the fullback recovered from a gashed leg but Peter Crouch (appendicitis) is still sidelined. Steven Defour is out with calf problem for the remainder of the season, while Aaron Lennon is still building up his fitness following a long term knee injury.

Burnley’s Predicted XI:

Heaton, Lowton, Mee, Tarkowski, Taylor, Hendrick, Cork, Westwood, McNeil, Wood, Barnes

The bookies have made City massive favourites with the away side currently 2/13 odds-on with Unibet. A draw is 9/1 at Betfair while a victory for Burnley is priced at 22/1 with Ladbrokes.

Predicted Score – 2-1 to City
