THE TEAM NEWS

BURNLEY

  • Burnley slipped to a 0-2 defeat at the weekend against Crystal Palace and now they face a tough test against Pep Guardiola's Man City.
  • Sean Dyche can welcome back Westwood after a one-match ban and he will likely come straight back in at the expense of Brady in midfield.
  • Taylor was forced to come off in the first half of the loss at the weekend with a hamstring problem so Pieters could deputise at left-back.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Pope; Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Barnes, Wood

Unavailable: Gudmundsson (Injured)

Doubtful: Taylor (Injured), Westwood (Injured), Vydra (Injured), Pieters (Injured)

MAN CITY

  • Man City dropped points once again at the weekend and they come into this game sitting a significant 11 points behind leaders Liverpool now.
  • Pep Guardiola may consider one or two changes for this game as Rodri and Bernardo Silva are candidates to rotate back into the starting XI while Gundogan is suspended so misses out here.
  • There may be further changes to the defence as Otamendi and potentially Angelino could come into the back four in place of Stones and Mendy.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Mendy; David Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Sterling

Unavailable: Sane (Injured), Laporte (Injured), Aguero (Injured), Gundogan (Suspended)

Doubtful: Zinchenko (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

The pressure is growing on Man City and Pep Guardiola to not drop any more points after falling 11 points behind Liverpool. They make the short trip to Turf Moor knowing they have to win and they have to be favoured to do so in spite of their leaky defence which will be tested once again here.
