Match status: 2019-20 Premier League - Matchweek 30
Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester)
Following his appointment as City’s head coach, the Spaniard took the Premier League by storm. With the media showing skepticism concerning Pep’s chances in England, the manager’s exploits in the league have since caused many to hop on the bandwagon.

Since taken over the reins in 2016, he had led the Citizens to two consecutive league titles, two EFL Cups as well as FA Cup success. Touted as favorites to lift the Premier League trophy once again, the Citizens have been completely outclassed by arch-rivals Liverpool.

A whopping 12 points behind league leaders Liverpool, City will now turn their attention to sealing second-spot on the standings. However, with Leicester City hot on their tails, they will be looking forward to a victory against Burnley on Monday to further cement their place behind Liverpool on the log.

Manchester City vs Burnley Team News

The Citizens must have begun the campaign with every intent of achieving league success for the third time on the bounce. However, they have been left off the pace in the running for the title, with Liverpool racing to the summit of the log.

City supporters can have no complaints about their side’s campaign, given their amazing record of 60 points from 29 games. Though very impressive, the relative superiority of Jurgen Klopp’s charges have left City’s numbers looking inconsequential.

Playing host to wounded beasts Arsenal on the last match-day, Manchester City grabbed the game by the scuff of the neck, making sure of the three points. Sterling, De Bruyne and Foden got in on the act as the Citizens swept their weak opposition aside to claim maximum points.

Impressively, Burnley have stood the test of time in their Premier League journey. Having gained promotion to English top-flight football in 2016, the Clarets have sealed their status as familiars in the Premier League ever since.

Sitting 11th on the standings, Sean Dyche’s men were handed the herculean task of upstaging top-four hopefuls Tottenham on home turf. To their credit, the home side put in a performance of the highest quality to secure a 1-1 draw against the Lilywhites.

As things stand, Manchester City are overwhelming favorites for the win. They are sporting an outstanding league record – one bettered only by run-away league leaders Liverpool. The manner in which they hammered Arsenal will leave the Clarets shuddering at the prospect of coming up against this foe on Monday.

When it comes to h2h encounters, the home side get the nod. They have secured victories in 14 of their preceding 15 clashes against Burnley, winning their last five meetings on the bounce. Impressively, they have registered a whopping 36 goals in 10 of these clashes, scoring two or more goals in each.
