Manchester City vs Burnley – Premier League : In one of the first matches of this Saturday’s Premier League 9th round…
We will have a match, in the city of Manchester, at the Etihad Stadium, between the locals of Manchester City, managed by Pep Guardiola, and Burnley, managed by Sean Dyche,
which will put in opposition the 1st and 7th places of this Premier League, who are separated by 9 points going into this round of the competition.
The hosts might not be able to count with Mendy, while Kompany is still doubtful; as for the visitors, Heaton and Walters are absent, while Marney and Wells are still doubtful.
Pep Guardiola’s team is continuing their “cruise” through the competitions they are inserted on, coming from an excellent streak of 10 wins in global, including the Champions League and the Premier League,
having an absolutely demolishing attacking potential, since they are certainly the better goal scoring and most dominant amongst the teams in every competition in Europe and the rest of the World.
When it comes to home record, the team has practically won every match, having only slipped up on their draw against Everton (1-1).
Of all the teams in the Premier League,
I would say that Burnley is certainly the sensation of the league, clearly being on the fight for something more than just avoiding relegation,
which has been the primary objective for Sean Dyche’s team ever since they were promoted a couple of years ago.
The team has the worst offensive record of all the teams in the top half of the league table, that’s certain, but they also have a respectable defensive record.
Manchester City vs Burnley – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Given the Citizens’ recent dominance, since they are in great form and seem to dominate every stage of the match and every opponent they face, and Burnley’s record,
I think this will be a tactically interesting match (in theory, it will be hard for Burnley to get battered, I think),
with Burnley keeping the defensive consistency they have been showing. Given that weak offensive record by Burnley, I believe that they won’t score in this match.
|Both teams to score? No!||
