Here is the latest form and team news from Turf Moor and the Etihad Stadium:
Burnley Form and Team News
Burnley are placed 19th on the log, and confidence is generally low around Turf Moor following three straight losses. With the fortunes of their fellow relegation-threatened teams looking up in recent weeks, Sean Dyche’s men are desperate for a victory.
Their winning form has been inferior this season, with just three wins in 27 games. With 12 draws and 12 losses, scoring 22 goals, and conceding 38, Burnley have managed just 21 points in what has been a poor league outing. 6 of those 22 goals have come from Maxwel Cornet, who has been their brightest player this season.
Burnley will be without influential captain Ben Mee, who has a knee injury. Also, Matej Vydra, Erik Pieters, and Johann Gudmundsson will miss the match as they are sidelined with injuries.
Manchester City Form and Team News
Manchester City picked up just two wins in their last four league games, and as a result, their lead at the league’s summit has been trimmed to just one point. Guardiola’s men have been imperious all season, though, managing 70 points from 29 games with 22 wins, four draws, and three losses.
City are the league’s second-highest goalscorers’ with 68 goals and the league’s best defense, conceding only 18 goals. Goalscorers have popped up all over the pitch for City, with Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling on ten goals apiece, while Kevin De Bruyne has struck nine times this season.
For injuries and suspensions, Benjamin Mendy remains suspended, and Ruben Dias remains sidelined with a thigh injury. Youngster Cole Palmer is also doubtful to feature as he has a foot injury.
