The Etihad Stadium will be in an expectant mood when Manchester City take on Burnley in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
City boast an imposing record over this opposition, having won 12 and lost none of the last 13 meetings.
Manchester City vs Burnley latest odds
Indeed, Man City are clear 1/9 (1.11) favourites with bet365 to extend that dominant streak by making it nine wins in succession against the visitors.
Sean Dyche’s side have gone 10 league matches without a victory but Burnley can be backed at 16/1 (17.00) to pull off a major upset by coming out on top here.
Two of the hosts’ last three league matches have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 8/1 (9.00) on them being forced to settle for a single point once again.
Manchester City vs Burnley first goalscorer
With Ferran Torres out injured, Gabriel Jesus, Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne are all at 5/1 (6.00) to open the scoring, with the Brazilian hitting the net four times in eight appearances against this opposition.
Chris Wood is a lengthy 16/1 (17.0) first goalscorer shot for the visitors as he struggles on just one goal from the seven opening league games, while Ashley Barnes is priced at 20/1 (21.00) after failing to score since February.
Manchester City vs Burnley preview
Having faced away trips to Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool in the space of a just over week prior to the international break, Pep Guardiola’s men will be grateful to return to action with a less ominous-looking game on home turf.
Indeed, the Clarets have proved very welcome visitors to this ground in recent seasons, taking no points from their last seven visits and losing each of the last four by the same 5-0 scoreline.
It is hard to see them improving on that record considering they have taken just three points from the last available 30, losing seven out of 10 matches and winning none.
Manchester City vs Burnley tips & predictions
Having scored at least five goals in five of their last six matches at the Etihad Stadium, odds of 20/21 (1.95) seem generous on City beating Burnley by three goals or more for their seventh home encounter in a row.
