The Citizens have really been on a rampaging run in recent years, as they won the league thrice in the span of the past four seasons. Manager Pep Guardiola’s thirst for perfection is one of the major reasons for their continued success. They added a notable player in the summer window in midfielder Jack Grealish, who became the highest transfer fee paid for a British player. Grealish joins a City team which allows him to elevate his skillset under the tutelage of Pep. This sets him up with a great chance for some silverware coming to the end of the season.

The Citizens sit in the 3rd spot level on points with Man United, Everton, and Brighton, only varying due to superior goal difference. Man City has won only 3 out of their last 5 Premier League matches, which has raised doubts over their title credentials. They have a moderately challenging run of fixtures in their next five games with Burnley(H), Brighton(A), Crystal Palace(H), Man United(A), and Everton(H).

Their last game against Liverpool in Gameweek 7 would have been an encouraging sight for the team as they played well in a 2-2 draw against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at Anfield. The only concern from the game will be that despite their domination, they weren’t able to finish their chances, something Pep will work on before the Gameweek 8.

Manchester City vs Burnley : Prediction

Man City though will be the favorites going into this tie because their strong football mentality really has made them ready for every situation. My prediction for the game would be a straightforward contest ending in a 2-0 victory for the home side at the Etihad Stadium.

It will be a tough outing for the Citizens as they will come up against a Sean Dyche side that will be tough defensively. Burnley will be a tricky team who will ask questions from a false nine City side who showed signs of converting chances in front of goal. City will be wary with the likes of Chris Wood, Dwight McNeil, and Maxwell Cornet being the main threats.

The Citizens will miss midfielder Ilkay Gundogan and defender Oleksander Zinchenko out with injuries. Man City’s Jack Grealish will once again reprise as the false nine, to stretch the defenses of a Burnley team looking to sit deep against them. Rodri will be the defensive midfielder with Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva providing the creativity from midfield.
