Pep Guardiola’s side are unbeaten in the Premier League this season and have kept four clean sheets in a row.
After a terrible start to the season, Burnley are unbeaten in their last three Premier League matches and are now five points clear of the bottom three. The Clarets haven’t won away to City since 1963 and it’s unlikely they will record a historic win on Saturday.
Manchester City- Claudio Bravo and Eliaquim Mangala are both sidelined for the reigning Premier League champions, while Fabian Delph and Ilkay Gündogan are doubts. Danilo picked up an injury for Brazil on Tuesday and is unlikely to be fit enough to feature here.
Kevin De Bruyne used the international break to step up his returns from injury but the Belgium international is unlikely to be rushed back by Pep Guardiola here. Place bet on LIVE matches 24/7 on NaijaBet
