Premier League leaders Manchester City will travel to Burnley on Saturday for what promises to be one of the toughest tests remaining in their chase for the title. Pep Guardiola and his men still have to face Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur before the season ends, but a trip to Turf Moor might be tougher than all of those combined.
It’s not an exaggeration. Beating a Sean Dyche side is difficult as it is, but doing it in Burnley’s home is next to impossible. They make every game against every opponent really, really, really tough, and their crowd is one of the best in the Premier League. With amazing fans and an amazing manager, the Burnley players don’t fear anyone and can beat anyone at any given time.
Winning the Premier League title looks like a foregone conclusion right now, and getting three points away at Burnley will prove City’s power even more. The Blues will have a really tough 90 minutes, and this is a game you just can’t miss.
