Burnley vs Man City predictions

Prediction 1: Man City Win

Manchester City have traditionally dominated this fixture in the past. The last 11 encounters between these teams have seen the Citizens come out victorious in all of the games. We're backing Pep Guardiola's men to string their 12th straight win over Burnley.

Prediction 2: Manchester City to Score First

The last 16 times both teams have squared off against each other has been one sided as far as scoring the first goal is concerned. Man City have hit the back of the net first in all of the last 16 meetings, and we're expecting the treble winners to do so again as they visit Turf Moor.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 Total Goals

Burnley and Manchester City have played against each other on many occasions. The last eight meetings have been a high-scoring one that has seen five matches feature at least three goals. Man City's last three friendlies also saw at least three goals, while Burnley conceded three times in their last match as well. All things being equal, this match looks set to see plenty of goals.
