Date & Time: October 16th, 2021 – 20:00 (IST)
Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester
Premier League football returns following a fortnight of international action, and Manchester City will be looking to keep pressing on as they welcome Burnley.
The blues came out with 4 points from 2 difficult trips to Chelsea and Liverpool before the break, while Burnley still await their first 3 points of the campaign.
Pep Guardiola’s side have once again been proving the naysayers wrong in recent weeks, with impressive showings at Stamford Bridge and Anfield.
They do sit 2 points off the pace in the Premier League but have ticked off a whole host of difficult fixtures already this term.
Ederson continues to put in some stellar performances for City while Ruben Dias and Kyle Walker are as tough to break down as ever in the back line.
Rodri will be hoping to keep things ticking in midfield, with Bernardo Silva and Kevin de Bruyne being tasked with being the creators in chief.
Phil Foden, Gabriel Jesus, and Jack Grealish will all be looking to provide a goal threat in the absence of a recognised striker at City this term.
The Clarets have endured a tough start to the campaign and are as yet winless with 7 rounds of fixtures already completed.
Sean Dyche is a savvy manager though and he will be keen to see his side back at it here – although he will be all too aware of the task facing them at the Etihad.
Nick Pope continues to impress at club level and his performances have seen him continue to feature in England squads under Gareth Southgate.
James Tarkowski and Ben Mee are as solid as they come at centre-back while Ashley Westwood is metronomic in the middle of the park.
Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes relish the physical side of the game upfront and they will be looking to make their presence felt to the Manchester City defensive line.
