Manchester City vs Burnley Analysis
For City, this is a must win game and their favourtism is well backed here with many EPL betting sites, but Burnley will give this a very good go.

Manchester City

Late wins at Newcastle United and Tottenham are sure to be very confidence boosting for City and they have a familiar look, with the end of the Premier League season on the horizon.
They remain in the hunt to replicate their historic Treble from last season, with some key men returning from injury too and their performances have certainly caught the eye with many punters and UK betting apps.

Team news: City are starting to get a few key players back, with John Stones, Ederson and Kevin de Bruyne on the way back from injury, whilst bigger question marks remain over Erling Haaland and Manuel Akanji.

Manchester City Predicted Lineup:
Ederson, Kyle Walker, Nathan Ake, Ruben Dias, Josko Gvardiol, Rodri, Mateo Kovacic, Bernardo Silva, Jeremy Doku, Phil Foden & Julian Alvarez.


The Clarets remain in a serious relegation battle, and they are amongst the favourites to go down in the eyes of many Premier League betting sites. However, Vincent Kompany will want his side to dig deep in games such as these and with a few personnel capable of causing problems, they will play with the shackles off at the Etihad.  

Team news: Charlie Taylor and Luka Koleosho remain the long term absentees for Burnley, who should almost have a full strength side to pick from here.

Burnley Predicted Lineup:
James Trafford, Vitinho, Dara O’Shea, Connor Roberts, Hjalmar Ekdal, Josh Cullen, Josh Brownhill, Sander Berge, Wilson Odobert, Lyle Foster & Zeki Amdouni.

Burnley will arrive to great fanfare, as their former manager Vincent Kompany returns to his old stomping ground and the Clarets know they have nothing to lose here.
