Manchester City v Burnley: Odds, predictions, team news & more

Fresh from booking their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup, Manchester City are back in Premier League action on Wednesday as they take on Vincent Kompany's Burnley.

City won 3-0 in the reverse fixture at Turf Moor on the opening day of the season and they have started to accelerate in the Premier League title race, having posted seven straight wins in all competitions.

The Citizens have a superb record against the Clarets and will be looking to build on that in this midweek clash at the Etihad Stadium.

Man City v Burnley Predictions

Man City -2 goals on handicap - 5/6 

Given the recent head-to-head record between these sides, it is difficult to look past another routine win for Manchester City at the Etihad.

Not only have Manchester City won each of their last 12 games against Burnley, but they have scored 43 goals in the process, conceding only once.

In the reverse fixture on the opening day of the season, City barely broke a sweat in their 3-0 win at Turf Moor and, unfortunately for Burnley, this is usually the time of season in which City hit their stride.

Pep Guardiola's men have indeed won seven straight games in all competitions and they should be high on confidence following their 1-0 win away to Tottenham in the FA Cup - the first time they have scored and won at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Burnley look destined for the drop in the Premier League this term and could be out of their depth in this one, so back Manchester City at -2 goals on the handicap, meaning they have to win by three or more goals.

Over 3.5 goals - 10/11

Thinking along similar lines to the handicap bet, a bet on over 3.5 goals could be worthwhile in this contest.

With games against Brentford and Everton coming up, City know they have a good opportunity to go on a run and they are unlikely to leave anything to chance against the leaky visitors.

The Clarets have conceded 42 goals in the Premier League this term - only Sheffield United (51) have shipped more - and City have scored 32 times in their last nine meetings with Burnley.

Phil Foden to make an assist – 7/4

Kevin De Bruyne has racked up some substitute appearances for City recently, but this game may still come too soon for him to start and Phil Foden may step up and shoulder the creative burden.

Foden has already laid on six assists in the Premier League this term, creating 1.8 chances per 90 minutes, and he is worth backing at 7/4 to set up a goal in this contest.

Man City Team News

Ederson and John Stones are fit for Manchester City, while Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne could both be on the bench at the Etihad.

Burnley Team News

The Clarets will be without injured trio Charlie Taylor, Nathan Redmond and Luca Koleosho, while Sander Berge, Jordan Beyer, Hannes Delcroix and Aaron Ramsey are doubts and David Datro Fofana could make his debut.

Man City v Burnley Stats

Manchester City have won their last 12 meetings with Burnley by an aggregate scoreline of 43-1.

The Clarets have lost 15 of their 21 games in the Premier League this term and have posted just one win in their last eight matches in all competitions.

City are on a run of seven successive wins in all competitions, scoring at least three goals in five of them.
