Manchester City vs Burnley Preview, Latest H2H record and Prediction: Premier League 21/22, Gameweek 8
The Etihad is the location for a big Premier League match-up when the Clarets make the trip to Manchester this weekend. On this note, Alley Sport brings you the Manchester City vs Burnley Preview, Latest H2H record and Prediction from this enthralling gameweek 8 encounter in the 202122 season of the English top division.
Manchester City vs Burnley Preview
Manchester City have made a great comeback this season after a very poor opening day loss at the hands of a below-average Tottenham Hotspur that was without even Harry Kane. But since then, the Citizens have won their games and managed to beat Chelsea and draw with Liverpool during that time, ensuring that they are within inches of the top of the table early on in the season.
Without any wins 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 Burnley in recent years.
Both teams would want wins for different reasons here. While the Clarets would happily settle for a draw here, Manchester City would be viewing this as an easy three-pointer. This game may seem like a foregone conclusion already but with football, we never know, and without a striker, Manchester City may well struggle a bit more when it comes to finishing chances.
Apart from the Manchester City vs Burnley preview, the predicted lineup of both teams for the games can be found here along with other key details and information about the game:

Manchester City vs Burnley Match Prediction
Honestly speaking, 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.
