The reigning champions know that maximum points from their last three games will retain them the Premier League title.

But Burnley have a good record against sides near the top of the table and enter the match in high spirits after Monday night’s hard-fought draw at Chelsea, which saw them reach the 40-point mark.

And having been knocked out of the Champions League, Guardiola is likely to stick with a strong team for the trip to Turf Moor.

Burnley are winless in their last seven meetings with Man City in all competitions (D1 L6) since a 1-0 win in March 2015.

Burnley FC vs Man. City clash at Turf Moor Burnley kicks off at 2.05pm.
