Reasons for Manchester City vs Burnley Tip
Manchester City continues its race towards the title, and the next obstacle is Burnley. Pep Guardiola’s players are looking unstoppable at the moment, and it seems that everything fits perfectly among the Citizens. Meanwhile, Sean Dyche is doing a great job with Burnley. The Clarets are near the top at the moment occupying 7th place in the standings. This is a massive challenge for Manchester City because the guests play astonishing against big names.
Manchester City Preview
The Citizens have 10 straight victories at the moment. It pretty much tells you everything about the current form of the Sky Blues from Manchester. In six matches during that span, they haven’t allowed a single goal. On the other hand, only once they haven’t scored 2 or more goals, and that happened against Chelsea 3 weeks ago. Things are even better when it comes to games played at Etihad Stadium. 5 straight wins with a total goal difference of 21-3. To summarise everything we can say without hesitation that Manchester City is on a wild rampage. Mendy is out, and the situation around Vincent Kompany is still uncertain.
Everybody is predicting the fall of Burnley, but at the moment the Clarets are not backing down. In the past 10 games, they have only two defeats. One of them was in the English Football League Cup when they got eliminated against Leeds United. When looking the past five games in the English Premier League, there are many guides we can use for our betting. Three events were finished with both teams not to score, and all of them were under 2.5 goals. It is the trademark of Sean Dyche who often sets up tactics according to the opponents, to decrease the pace and tempo of the match. Goalkeeper Tom Heaton, Nahki Wells, and Jonathan Walters will not play.
Manchester City vs Burnley Head to Head
It is interesting that in the latest six games Manchester City allowed at least one goal against Burnley. 5 of the most recent 6 matches played in last 3 seasons terminated with both teams to score. The same number of games ended with over 2.5 goals. Manchester won 3 games, Burnley only one.
During the last season when Pep Guardiola and Sean Dyche met, the Citizens were more satisfied. On both occasions, City beat the rival with the same results in both games 2-1.
Manchester City vs Burnley Prediction and Betting Tips
We did not mean to underestimate anyone, but the Citizens are going to win this game, big time. We genuinely believe that Burnley cannot restrain Manchester City’s attack as they did with other teams in the Premier League. So for the first bet, we are choosing Manchester city to win with a handicap -2.5.
The second that would be over 3.5 goals. With the perfect condition of Manchester and the excellent form of their strikers we cannot see any other outcome.
