Manchester City vs Burnley: Match Preview:

While that would have seemed an outlandish suggestion only a few months ago, Liverpool could move ahead of Pep Guardiola's side in the Premier League title race should they beat Watford in Saturday's early kick-off.

City, who drew with Crystal Palace last time out, surely have to win all of their games from here.

Burnley, meanwhile, are fighting for their lives at the bottom of the table and shocked Tottenham at Turf Moor fairly recently.

If there's one team capable of sitting back and frustrating City, it's surely Sean Dyche's side.

Team News:


Burnley will be without the services of Nathan Collins due to his red card against Brentford, while Ben Mee is still injured, so Kevin Long is in line for his first Premier League appearance of the season at the back.

Matej Vydra could be involved, having returned to training following an elbow injury, but Erik Pieters (knee) and Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf) remain unavailable for selection.

There are not expected to be any surprises in the home side's starting XI, with Dwight McNeil, Wout Weghorst and Maxwel Cornet all set to feature in attacking areas, while Aaron Lennon should also keep his spot in the side.

Manchester City:

Man City will again be without the services of Ruben Dias and Cole Palmer through injury, while Benjamin Mendy remains suspended by the English champions.

Ederson (illness) is available despite being forced to withdraw from the Brazil squad, and England duo John Stones and Raheem Sterling have also recovered from the problems that they suffered on international duty.

Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Sterling could start as the front three against Burnley, with Jack Grealish potentially dropping down to the bench.

Nathan Ake will be on standby if Stones suffers a late setback after his minor issue, while Rodri, Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne are set to feature as the midfield three at Turf Moor.
