Burnley vs Manchester City Match Preview and Team News
Burnley made a terrible start to the season and spent several months in the relegation zone with just two points from their first seven games. The form has picked up with six wins in the last 13 league fixtures. That includes their famous victory at Liverpool, ending their long unbeaten home record. Burnley’s first league win came on November 23rd, but the week later, they went to the Etihad and lost 5-0. Home form against Manchester City isn’t inspiring with no league win since 2015, and the last three losses with eight goals conceded. That includes a 3-0 home defeat to them this season in the EFL Cup. Only one of their previous six home league games has been lost. Sunday saw them lose away at Chelsea but are still eight points above the bottom three. Chris Wood is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
City beat Burnley 5-0 at home, making it 11 wins and a draw against them in the last 12 meetings with an aggregate score of 40-5. The previous seven have seen City score 25 goals with just one conceded. It is not great news for Burnley fans, and even worse, City comes to Turf Moor in top form. They have won 12 successive league and cup games and are unbeaten in their last 19. Saturday saw them beat Sheffield United 1-0 at home and have scored at least twice in nine of their previous 11 matches. City isn’t just scoring lots of goals. They have kept clean sheets in their last five league games and in 10 of the previous 12. Not bad going considering key players have been or are out injured. Away form has seen City win their last three away league games, scoring nine goals. Phil Foden shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Raheem Sterling is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
