Match Preview
Seventh-placed Burnley welcome Manchester City in the 26th round of the Premier League (PL). Both teams continued their season in typical fashion in the midweek round; Burnley by winning a hard-fought point away at Newcastle, City by comprehensively beating West Brom.
Although still in pole position to qualify for Europe, Burnley need to sort themselves out to keep up the challenge. Now winless in eight, they have teams like Leicester and Everton hot on their tails.
With the third best defensive record in the league, it’s offensively that Sean Dyche’s men are struggling – they’ve only scored 20 goals in 25 matches and have failed to find the net in five of the last eight.
No such problem for Dyche’s colleague; Pep Guardiola’s City have been flush with goals all season. Their three goals in midweek took their tally to 73 for the season – 2.92 on average per match.
The West Brom win sent City 15 points clear at the top and coach Guardiola is ready for silverware: “We still have to win eight games to be champions and we are going to try and win the next one in two days and a half.”
Players to watch: City striker Sergio Aguero scored again against West Brom and has 17 goals to his name so far this season.
Sam Vokes also scored in midweek and something special from the big man might be what Burnley need to break the deadlock against strong opponents.
Stat attack: City have scored two goals or more in eight consecutive games (all competitions) – Burnley have managed the same in six games all season (two of them against lower league sides).
Burnley won here against City in 2015, but have since lost four straight games. In both previous meetings this season, City have won by a three-goal margin while Aguero scored three in those games.
