Burnley face Manchester City at the Etihad this afternoon (Saturday) in the Premier League, Gameweek 8 of the 2021/22 season.
City produced one of their best games of the season so far with a pulsating 2-2 draw at Anfield.
The result keeps them in touching distance of league leaders Chelsea and second-placed Liverpool, as Pep Guardiola aims to maintain momentum with those sides.
The Premier League champions faced some tough tests away from home as they maneuvered difficult trips to Chelsea, PSG and Liverpool.
They won at Stamford Bridge and secured an entertaining draw at Anfield while losing to the French side.
The next visitors at the Etihad are Burnley, who are looking for their first win of the season.
The home of Manchester City may not be the apt place to dream of securing three points for Sean Dyche’s men.
Against City, they have a very slim chance of getting anything from the game, like the Champions’ form on home turf shows.
Then again, the Premier League has been the theatre of surprises, and the Clarets can pull one off if they are at their best.
