Burnley completely under the ice
Click City -1.5 to 1.76 times the batter when Burnley stands for the resistance during Saturday morning. Never thought I would go to Burnley home at Turf Moor this season, with the prevailing conditions for a relatively comfortable away victory. Then my thoughts go ahead for the match.
Burnley opened the season roughly, but the results have not gone the way lately. A seventh place is definitely a receipt in a strong season, but purely formally, Burnley is completely under the ice with four losses and a cross on the last five games. Has not won a football match since the 1-0 win against Stoke in mid December. The good self-esteem is like blown away. The biggest strength is clearly in the home game, but three straight home losses raise even more question marks. Certainly, the resistance has been Tottenham, United and Liverpool, but at the same time, there is not much that speaks for a trend break when the sovereign series of cities come to visit on Saturday.
Add a brutal injury to the home team that does not affect up to seven players. Heaton, Defour, Brady and Wood miss the match because of injuries, which is obviously the break of the heavier model. Add to that, major question marks on Tarkowski and Ward, which will be tested late. On the whole, I find it hard to see Burnley stand up when a seemingly unstoppable City is coming to visit.
City trains on
Manchester City trains on. There is no soul that is not convinced that the title is in port. Tops the table in superior style with 15 points down to Manchester United – crushing. Have won 22 (!) Matches of 25 possible this season. Clean of ridiculous figures that testify to Guardiola’s amazing work with the club.
Since the 4-3 loss against Liverpool, four straight wins have been collected, last 3-0 victory at home against West Bromwich. A match that City completely dominated from start to finish, and where the result is at its bottom. In four of the last five matches, one has achieved at least three goals. Made at least two goals in 16 of the 18 last league matches. A target of 2.92 goals / match testifies to the team’s little crazy goal production. Sané and Jesus are certainly missing because of injuries, but at the same time Guardiola has a rugged wide gamer group at its disposal. The fact that Aguero has started targeting may of course be seen as a big plus. No, here is the victory only. Does not really see how City will fail to hang a pair of boxes against a faint and injured Burnley, who has not been able to recognize the last few weeks.
Our Prediction: Manchester City win @ 1.76
