Burnley can’t seem to find a win as they prepare to host league-leaders Manchester City at Turf Moor on Saturday.
The Clarets needed a late own-goal from Newcastle United to come out with a 1-1 draw from St James’ Park on Saturday. That draw put an end to a run of four consecutive defeats for the Clarets, but they still remain without a win in their last nine games in all competitions.
After flirting with European places for some time, Burnley now find themselves in the seventh spot with 35 points with Leicester City and Everton close behind them.
The Citizens will come into the game on the back of a comfortable 3-0 home win over West Bromwich Albion. The Citizens now enjoy a 15-point lead at the top, and its safe to assume that they are going to be crowned league champions this season.
After their defeat at Liverpool, City have claimed two consecutive wins in the league, and have also progressed in both cups.
We don’t see an out-of-form Burnley side being able to stop the leaders and we are predicting a comfortable City win in this game.
Earlier this season, the Citizens claimed a 3-0 win over the Clarets at Etihad Stadium. City also claimed a 4-1 win over their opponents in the fifth round of FA Cup in the first week of January.
