Burnley will host Manchester City in the English Premier League.

Manchester City won a big game midweek as they defeated Manchester United at Old Trafford. While the win was massive for rivalry reasons, the 3 points also mean that the Sky Blues have relatively straight road towards the Premier League title. In the win at Old Trafford, Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane were both exceptional as both attacking players scored goals. The defence was also very solid as Manchester City only allowed the Red Devils to have 1 shot on target in the entire match. Winning the remainder of the games is vital for Manchester City since Liverpool are close behind but the team morale looks high and the players look confident in their ability to close out the title.

On the other side of the coin, Burnley look safe to avoid relegation. It was a nervous few weeks for Burnley fans but the team managed big results against Chelsea and Cardiff City to secure a position of safety. In their previous outing, Burnley managed a 2-2 draw against Chelsea. This will be a much tougher match for Burnley and considering safety is secured, it is tough to see the players getting enough fight to challenge an exceptional team like Manchester City.

Manchester City and Burnley met earlier in the season at the Etihad Stadium. It was a big win for Manchester City as they won 5-0. Sergio Aguero, Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva, Riyad Mahrez and Fernandinho all scored for Manchester City.

As far as this match is concerned, I see Manchester City winning with ease. Burnley are safe from relegation and the home fans will not be expecting the team to get anything from this fixture. Manchester City still need to points and I see them winning this game with comfort and moving closer to the Premier League title.
