Manchester City have not been at their fluent best recently but the visit of Burnley gives them the chance to find their shooting boots.
City have won 10 of their last 11 meetings in all competitions with the Clarets, who have been thrashed 5-0 on their last three visits to the Etihad Stadium.
Even with City not at their best, backing them to win by three goals or more at 13/10 – just as they did in the EFL Cup tie in September – looks a solid Man City vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
City will once again be looking to transfer their Champions League form to the Premier League this weekend.
Wednesday night’s 1-0 win at Olympiacos maintained their 100 per cent record in Group C and secured their place in the knockout stages with two matches to spare.
It has been a different story in the Premier League though after a stuttering opening which has seen them win just three of eight games.
In keeping with a number of their games this season, City again failed to make the most of their chances on Wednesday.
They racked up 22 shots but Phil Foden’s sweet 36th-minute strike, from a clever Raheem Sterling backheel at the end of a flowing move, was all they had to show for their efforts.
Pep Guardiola, who rested Kevin De Bruyne, said: “We were much more aggressive. Everyone was so committed and we attacked with more desire to shoot, to score.
“Unfortunately we could only score one goal but the team is alive.”
That sounds ominous for Burnley and with De Bruyne likely to come back into the team, the Belgian to score in a City win appeals at 13/10 in the Man City vs Burnley odds.
Last Man City line-up: Ederson, Dias, Stones, Mendy, Cancelo, Gundogan, Rodri, Silva, Foden, Sterling, Jesus.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley can at least make the short trip to Manchester in good spirits after securing their first win of the season earlier this week.
Chris Wood’s early strike proved enough to beat a Crystal Palace side that lacked a cutting edge in Wilfried Zaha’s absence, but they will face a very different test here.
Burnley are the joint-lowest scorers in the division with Wood’s goal being only their fourth in eight matches – and first in five games – but it was enough to move them out of the relegation zone.
That makes a City win to nil an easy pick at 17/20 for our Man City vs Burnley predictions, while we also fancy Sergio Aguero to score the last goal at 13/5.
The striker was given a late run-out in Greece as he stepped up his recovery from a hamstring injury and could be given the same sort of role again this weekend.
Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, McNeil, Westwood, Wood, Rodriguez.
Olympiacos 0-1 MAN CITY – Phil Foden
