Burnely host Manchester City on Saturday evening with hopes of survival starting to wain for the Clarets. I've been impressed by Burnley this season in their application and their effort but unfortunately their goalscoring has let them down. With the fourth least amount of goals scored Burnley have been heavily reliant on Danny Ings whose nine goals lead the team. Boyd, Vokes and Barnes will be looking to help Ings out but the truth is that Burnley have just struggled to finish the chances they are creating.
Manchester City have a massive game against Barcelona on Wednesday night in a Champions League tie that they must score at least twice. Prior to playing Barcelona in the first leg City destroyed Newcastle by five goals to nil. On Saturday they will be using this game as a tune up for next Wednesday. Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Ya ya Toure will be the key figures that Manchester City will rely upon. Look for City to try to get a win here and move on to Wednesday. Pelligrini may look to rest some players but anyone he does play here will be vying for a starting spot againt Barcelona and with Chelsea facing a tough game against Southampton this weekend Manchester City will be hoping to close the gap at the top.
Really tough game to call here until we see the line ups but presuming that Manchester City start Aguero, Toure and Silva I am going to take City -1. They just look so much better than Burnley on paper that I cant take the Clarets. I would love to see Burnley get something from this and would ultimately love to see them stay up but I think that Burnley may be doomed and will probably find Manchester City just too good tomorrow.
