Man City vs Burnley Prediction and Odds: Recent Form
City’s defending to their Premier League title started on a bitter note as they had to digest a defeat at the hand of Nuno Espirito Santo’s Tottenham Hotspur.
But since then they have been on a rampaging mode as they thumped five goals past Norwich City and Arsenal in back to back matches.
They also managed to get past Chelsea with a solitary goal but their only two draws came against Southampton and Liverpool.
Burnley have failed to prove their authority this time as Sean Dyche’s side has completely lost the plot. With three draws and four losses, they are currently sitting in the relegation zone and if their fate doesn’t change soon they might find it difficult to survive in the Premier League as it stands.
Man City vs Burnley Prediction and Odds: Preview
Burnley is known for their frustrating way to choke opponents. The Clarets are one of the well-disciplined Premier League sides and they are also a very well-oiled defensive unit.
City sometimes has struggled for goals as their search for a proper number nine couldn’t yield any result in the summer transfer window. Guardiola has shifted Gabriel Jesus to the flanks and has used both Jack Grealish and Ferran Torres as a false nine.
Dyche who signed a long term deal at the club recently claimed if given time his team will soon find the form. “Stats and facts and all that, the last one doesn’t guarantee the next one.
I’m well aware of that, we’ve shown over many years we can be productive, and I believe we will be again, and we will find ways to score goals. We have four very good strikers in my opinion and we will find goals.
We had a slow start last season and then picked up quite strongly, and it’s important we do that again.But the belief in the way the players are playing is there, I think they showed that again, but we have to find that cutting edge quite obviously.”
Guardiola praised his team after they showed character in the 2-2 draw with Liverpool. City dominated the first half but couldn’t make their effort count as they failed to convert their chances.
What a game! That is the reason the last year Man City and Liverpool were always there because we try to play this way. That’s why the EPL is the best. It was great. Unfortunately we couldn’t win, but we didn’t lose.”
The way we played at Stamford Bridge, in Paris and today shows we are a great team.
