Burnley vs Manchester City Prediction & Match Preview

Burnley vs Manchester City
England Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 3 February 2021
Kick-Off at 18.00 UK
Venue: Turf Moor, Burnley.

Manchester City will be aiming to cement top position in the Premier League standings when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Matchday 22. 

The Citizens are eyeing their 13th consecutive win in all competitions, but keep in mind that Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero remain on the sidelines. 

In their last away game in the English top flight Pep Guardiola’s troops rolled over WBA 5-0 in their last away game.

All Stones, Rodri, Mahrez, and Sterling are pushing for a start. The Clarets, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Chelsea, and it is no wonder they are seen as big underdogs in Wednesday’s clash against the title holders. 

Since Manchester City do not suit Burnley, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the star-studded visitors. Sean Dyche should have a full squad to choose from.

Team News:

Kevin De Bruyne remains on the sidelines for City - not that his absence has been felt all that much - and Nathan Ake is another injury absentee.

Striker Sergio Aguero has recovered from coronavirus and could play some part on Wednesday, though he is likely to be slowly brought back up to speed.

Riyad Mahrez impressed with a goal and an assist against West Bromwich Albion last week and will be hopeful of returning to the side here.

The Algerian winger has scored more Premier League goals against Burnley (eight) than he has against any other side, a run that includes seven in his last four outings.

As for the hosts, Ashley Barnes missed the loss to Chelsea with a knock and will be assessed ahead of this midweek clash, as will fellow striker Chris Wood.

Charlie Taylor and Josh Brownhill are also considered doubtful with thigh and ankle injuries respectively.

Burnley keeper Nick Pope may be in for a busy day, though that is nothing unusual for the England international - only Sam Johnstone at West Bromwich Albion has made more Premier League saves this season (85 compared to 80).

Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Brady, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Wood, Barnes

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo; Silva, Rodrigo, Gundogan; Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling
