Preview

City are looking to get back on the right course in the Premier League after last weekend’s 2-0 loss at Tottenham.

A midweek Champions League win at Olympiakos guaranteed progression to the Round of 16 so should help with momentum.

Burnley won their first match of the campaign with a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last Monday.

Team News

Pep Guardiola will have a fully fit squad to choose from for the first time this season.

Burnley will be without Dale Stephens and Jack Cork.

Robbie Brady is rated as doubtful and England keeper Nick Pope faces a late fitness test.

Prediction

An interesting managerial duel, Pep v Dyche match that should feature a heavy possession based attack by City and Burnley looking to counter. I do think City’s quality in midfield will be the difference. Along with a great forward line.

Manchester City 3-1 Burnley
