English Premier League: Burnley vs Manchester City preview

Matchday 15 of the English Premier League 2019/20 will present the party between Burnley against Manchester City at Turf Moor on Wednesday. Manchester City is predicted to return to winning ways in this fight.

Burnley had just lost a very disappointing away defeat to Crystal Palace. Sean Dyche’s team lost two goals without reply. Even so, they are still in the top ten of the standings.

The team from Lanchasire was classified as very tame when dealing with the top-six club in 2018/19 season. They lost 12 times. Even worse, nine of their 12 losses occurred with a margin of two or more goals.

That is very contradictory with what Manchester City has. Pep Guardiola’s team are still the top scorer in the Premier League this season with 39 goals. Although no Sergio Aguero is injured, they have many players who can change the complexion of the match.

It’s just that, in the last three away games Manchester City to Turf Moor, Kevin De Bruyne et al. can only win by one goal margin. It is interesting to wait whether the City can record a slick record against Burnley as when playing at home.

This should be taken into consideration. In the previous match, Man City surprisingly drew 2-2 when they visited Newcastle United. In the last two seasons, City itself has a bad record there.

In the match later, Manchester City will again be without Aguero, Aymeric Laporte, Leroy Sane and Oleksandr Zinchenko. However, they are predicted to still be able to beat Burnley in order to maintain the top position of the English League standings.

Burnley: Nick Pope; Phil Bardsley, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Charlie Taylor; Robbie Brady, Jeff Hendrick, Jack Cork, Dwight McNeil; Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes. Coach: Sean Dyche.

Manchester City: Ederson; Benjamin Mendy, Fernandinho, John Stones, Kyle Walker; Ilkay Gundogan, Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne; Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus. Coach: Pep Guardiola.

Players to Watch:

Ashley Barnes (Burnley)

Barnes is one of Burnley’s sharpest strikers who has the potential for surprise early in the fight. Three of Barnes’ four goals were scored in the first half.

Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)

Sterling proved to be very effective when playing with Gabriel Jesus. Six of his eight goals in the Premier League this season were created when paired with the Brazilian international.
