For our Premier League predictions today, we’re turning our attention to a battle of the North West, as Pep’s underperforming Manchester City side host struggling Burnley at the Etihad. Read on for our expert Premier League tips & betting predictions for this fixture on Saturday.
Having been pipped as potential title favourites once again by a large proportion of Premier League predictions experts, Manchester City sit a lowly 13th in the table, albeit with a game in hand. Having won 3, drawn 3 and lost 2, Pep’s side definitely aren’t out of the running yet, but anymore points dropped would seriously dampen any title hopes they still harbour. City enjoyed the lion’s share of position against Spurs last Saturday, but failed to make it count and ultimately lost 2-0. Midweek, Manchester City had 22 shots against Olympiacos but only managed to convert one.
Burnley managed to grab their first win on Monday night against Crystal Palace, pulling them out of the relegation zone by a single point. Sean Dyche’s side have the best defensive record out of the bottom 7 sides, but are the joint worst scorers in the league, having scored just 4 goals in 8 games so far. They have played one less game than the 3 teams above and below them, so are better placed to pull away from the relegation zone than their rivals. Burnley were dealt a blow in Monday’s victory over Crystal Palace as Irish midfielder Robbie Brady sustained a hamstring injury.
You won’t be surprised to read that the history of this fixture belongs to Manchester City in the Premier League era. Since their unbroken run of seasons in the Premier League began in 2014, Burnley have managed just 2 points against Manchester City in 13 meetings across all 3 domestic competitions. The most recent of those draws was at Turf Moor in 2018. City have won their last 6 against Burnley, having scored a staggering 23 goals in that time to Burnley’s 1. Overall, our Premier League predictions today don’t look good for the Clarets.
Below, we’ve provided you with the results of the last 5 games between these sides as well as 3 statistical highlights. We’ve used all of this information and more for our Premier League prediction weekend. Read on below to find out our top recommended bet!
Having analysed the above information, our premier League predictions for this match point to a convincing win for Manchester City.
Both of these sides have been struggling for goals by their own standards so far this season. We’re also being served up the rarity of these sides meeting at this stage of the season both being in the bottom half of the table, just 4 places apart. City have still been playing Pep’s signature possession-based style, but have been struggling to notch up the goal tallies that they have become used to in recent seasons. Coming up against Burnley could provide the confidence booster that this City side need, however, as they’ve scored 3 or more goals in 5 of their last 6 meetings against Burnley, having conceded just once in those 6 games. This should be fairly straightforward for the Citizens, but not as high scoring as recent times. We’re therefore backing 3 goals to be scored exactly at odds of 4 with Bet365.
