On Wednesday, Manchester City will face off against Burnley at The Etihad Stadium, with the Blues looking to grab more Premier League points under their belt.
Manchester City will be aiming to replicate their success in the FA Cup after winning against Tottenham Hotspur, this time hoping for a more confident scoreline. In said game, Manchester City dominated possession with 57% and attempted 18 shots on goal, out of which 5 were on target. The sole goal for Manchester City was scored by Nathan Aké in the 88th minute. On the contrary, Tottenham Hotspur managed only 1 shot at goal, with 1 of them being on target.
City’s pressure was immense against Tottenham, however the Lilywhites managed to barely maintain their defensive composure. Oscar Bobb saw his goal disallowed early on, while Julian Alvarez and Phil Foden missed 2 chances each in front of the net.
Burnley secured a 1-1 draw in their previous Premier League encounter against Luton Town. Burnley had a possession rate of 39% including 13 attempts at goal, with 7 of them being on target. Zeki Amdouni (36′) was the sole scorer for Burnley. On the contrary, Luton Town managed to take 14 shots on goal, with 5 of them being on target. Carlton Morris (92′) found the back of the net for Luton Town, ultimately salvaging a draw.
Burnley’s defensive struggles are evident when looking at their season statistics. In 5 out of their last 6 matches, they have been scored against, resulting in a total of 9 goals conceded. It is clear that Burnley has encountered some defensive issues, especially in their wingback department.
It is hard to see a world where Manchester City is unable to find the back of the net against a defensively shaky Burnley side. Thus we give the edge to the Blues this time around.
