Tip: Burnley +2.5
Units: 5/5

Pep Guardiola probably doesn’t enjoy going to Turf Moor considering that his Manchester City side have always struggled in this fixture since he took charge of the English club.

Team news | League Table | Odds

The Citizens enjoyed a narrow 2-1 victory during his first season in charge before drawing 1-1 the following year and last season’s clash was decided by a solitary Sergio Aguero goal.

Manchester City can ill-afford to drop any more Premier League points considering that they trail Liverpool by nine at the time of writing, with the visitors having already lost at Carrow Road and Anfield this season.

Burnley are in good shape with eighteen points on the board after thirteen played and this is something of a bonus game for them, with Sean Dyche’s side under no pressure after recently racking up maximum hauls against West Ham and Watford.

These were both 3-0 victories and Dyche has a typically settled side who know their jobs, with Nick Pope impressing between the sticks, while the front two of Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes could pose a few problems for their north-west opponents.

Wood is currently averaging a goal per match in a claret and blue shirt and we think there could be mileage backing the home side with an enormous handicap in this clash.

We can actually get odds of 1.50 about Burnley with a +2.5 goal start which means this bet would still cop if the Clarets lost the match by a two-goal margin.

The last time that City won by three goals or more was when they thrashed Atalanta 5-1 in the Champions League on 22 October, with the team last doing it in the league when putting Watford to the sword by an 8-0 scoreline.

However, recent history suggests that Burnley can make things suitably tough and this clash comes quickly after City’s trip to St James’ Park and Champions League clash against Shakhtar.
