- Man City’s 2-2 draw away at Liverpool kept them above the Reds going into the international break, although Pep Guardiola’s side could find themselves below Liverpool going into this game depending on the outcome of their lunchtime kickoff away at Watford.
- Full-back Oleksandr Zinchenko and midfielder Ilkay Gundongan are available again, while Brazilian internationals Ederson and Gabriel Jesus won't feature due to the abnormally short turnaround between Brazil’s latest international and this match. Ferran Torres, meanwhile, has suffered an injury blow after being ruled out for over two months with a foot injury.
- Burnley head to the Etihad Stadium inside the relegation places and without a Premier League win in this campaign thus far with their most recent two games both ending in draws.
- Centre-back Ben Mee will miss out due to a positive COVID-19 test while Charlie Taylor and Matej Vydra are carrying knocks with Dyche describing them as "touch and go" ahead of the daunting visit of Man City.

Whenever Man City have faced Burnley in recent years at the Etihad Stadium, it has never ended well for the Clarets. In fact, City have beaten Burnley by an aggregate score of 24-0 across the last five fixtures between these two sides in Manchester. Guardiola’s men have triumphed by five goals to nil in their most recent four home games against Sean Dyche’s side in all competitions and when considering the amount of strength-in-depth the reigning Premier League champions possess within their squad, not to mention the individual quality of each player, then any result here other than a Man City win by at least three clear goals would be seen as a big surprise
