Preview

Manchester City will look to build on Wednesday’s 3-0 win over Arsenal and maintain their hold on second place.

Burnley will seek to rediscover the form they were showing before the league was postponed, having been on a seven-match unbeaten run.

Team News

Claudio Bravo (back) and John Stones (ankle) continue to be monitored by the Man City medical team but Eric Garcia, who suffered a head injury against Arsenal, is ruled out due to concussion rules.

Burnley’s Ashley Barnes (hernia), Chris Wood (Achilles) and Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf) are missing through injury.

Prediction

Man City come in to this game rocking after a solid victory against Arsenal and should continue winning. Burnley are a feisty side, but history shows us Pep has Sean Dyche’s number. City win.

Manchester City 3-1 Burnley
