THE TEAM NEWS

MAN CITY

  • Man City ended up having a free midweek after their match with Arsenal was postponed so they will be relatively fresh ahead of this game.
  • That extra time will have given Aguero and De Bruyne a chance to recover from injuries and both should be in contention to play here.
  • Pep Guardiola will likely make changes although he will have half an eye on the upcoming second leg against Real Madrid in Europe next week.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan; Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Mahrez

Unavailable: Laporte (Injured), Mendy (Illness)

Doubtful: Sane (Injured), De Bruyne (Injured)

BURNLEY

  • Burnley extended their unbeaten run in the league to seven matches last weekend as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Tottenham.
  • With Jay Rodriguez absent through injury, Sean Dyche will be forced into making a change to his side for this trip to the Etihad.
  • Both Ashley Barnes and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are said to be making progress but have also been ruled out of contention for this game.

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

Unavailable: Lowton (Injured), Gibson (Out of favour), Barnes (Injured), Gudmundsson (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Man City are not in their best form right now as they come off a derby defeat but they have an excellent record against Burnley. They have won eight and drawn one of their last nine meetings, and while Burnley are more than capable of breaching their defence, they should take all three points.
