The Clarets have made a fantastic start to the season and are yet to lose away from home, and they’ve already won at Chelsea and Everton, as well as getting a point at Liverpool. Sean Dyche teams are always tough to beat, and they’ll come to the Etihad to make things tough for Pep Guardiola and his men.
City are still unbeaten this season and have dominated the league in the first eight games, but this should not be a game that players and fans should take for granted. A victory must be earned with good football and intense focus, and while the Blues are favorites they have to prove it with a strong performance and a win.
