Burnley vs Manchester City Preview and Livestream

Without a win this season, Burnley are reeling and are facing the drop. Realistically speaking, there was no way Sean Dyche’s medieval style of football was going to keep up with the modern teams and tactics for today, and in some way, the Premier League would be a better watch for the neutrals without the savagery and flair-deprived football of the Clarets.

But that doesn’t mean that Dyche’s side have lost their appetite for a fight. Time and again they have shown their resilience and despite keeping just 1 clean sheet in 7 league games, that too against new boys Norwich City in a 0-0 draw before the international break, they would at least look for a draw against a Manchester City impressing heavily after an opening day defeat against Tottenham Hotspur this season.

Ben Mee is almost fully recovered from an ankle injury and should compete for a start against the Citizens. Johann Berg Gudmundsson is also a minor doubt for the game with a knock. Apart from the duo, Burnley have a fit team to take to the Ethiad this weekend. As for Dyche, he is the antithesis of Pep Guardiola. While the latter rotates his team and formation erratically, Dyche is consistent with his team selection.

Burnley vs Manchester City Prediction

There is only one winner here. Manchester City are too strong and going for the title, games against teams in the relegation zone such as Burnley is always a must-win for them, and that is what they will do here. We go with a 2-0 home win for Guardiola’s side as they look to win another Premier League title to assert their recent domestic dominance in England.
