Manchester City hosts Burnley
The champion Manchester City hosts Burnley at the Etihad in a game from the 30th round of the Premier League. This is a good opportunity to present you some more of our English Premier League predictions.
Manchester City are still with a game in hand as their match against Arsenal on Wednesday was postponed because of the coronavirus. At this moment the Cityzens are second in the league with 57 points, being four points ahead of the third Leicester City. We are not mentioning the leader Liverpool, because the Reds are already uncatchable at the first place.
Against Burnley Pep Guardiola’s team will try to bounce back after its 7th loss for the season. It happened against Manchester United in the previous round, when the Cityzens suffered a 0-2 defeat at the Old Trafford. It was a poor performance by the champions who are maybe starting to lose motivation in the Premier League.
Three key figures are unavaliable for Manchester City at the moment. These are Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte and Kevin De Bruyne. They will sit out for the next game. Because of Aguero’s injury we must expect to see Gabriel Jesus leading the forward line again.
Burnley approach this game from 10th place in the standigns. This season is going to end well for them as they once again guaranteed their survival for at least one more year. Right now Burnley have a record of 11 wins, 6 draws and 12 defeats.
What’s really impressive about Sean Dyche’s team is Burnley’s current form – they are unbeaten in their last five matches in the Premier League. This means that most probably we shall expect an interesting game at the Etihad on Saturday.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the game between Manchester City and Burnley on Saturday. Both teams are not really playing for much right now, but despite of this we expect a good game.
