Burnley Prediction – Can Burnley bounce back at Turf Moor?

Burnley were handed a disappointing and perhaps unexpected 2-0 defeat by Crystal Palace at home on the weekend but although they have another chance to redeem themselves on Tuesday night, their opponents are Manchester City who will be desperate to make up some ground on title rivals, Liverpool.

The loss to Palace became Burnley’s fourth defeat in six matches in the Premier League and The Clarets have dropped down to a mid-table position of 10th place on the top flight ladder following losses to Leicester City, Chelsea, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace.

Burnley are still ahead in the ‘profit & loss’ ledger though on home turf as their home record of 4-0-3 11/9 indicates, and for the purpose of tonight’s pick, Burnley have lost by 3 goals or more just once in their last 17 home matches in the Premier League (a 3-0 loss to Liverpool at the start of September).

At home against Tuesday night’s opponents, Manchester City, Burnley have avoided being beaten by more than 2 goals in each of their last 4 meetings against City at Turf Moor, so they can at least keep things tight here.

Manchester City Prediction – Can Manchester City make up lost ground?

A 2-2 draw away at Newcastle United in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off further frustrated Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City side in their quest to erode the points deficit that Liverpool hold at the top of the Premier League, which currently now stands at 11 points over City.

You have to feel it’s now Liverpool’s title to lose as they also hold an 8-point lead over 2nd placed Leicester City who have emerged as Liverpool’s closest rivals for the highly coveted league title, and although Manchester City have won their last 3 home games on the trot with wins over Aston Villa, Southampton and Chelsea, perhaps the pressure is starting to tell on the road.

City have produced a mixed bag of results on their travels recently as they’ve picked up wins at Everton and Crystal Palace but have also suffered defeats at Norwich City and what could prove to be a pivotal 3-1 loss at Liverpool, while the point at Newcastle United was also a major blow.

In addition, Manchester City have won by a 3-goal margin in just 2 of their last 15 away matches in the top flight as they seem to be finding it increasingly more difficult to assert total dominance on their opponents on the road than they used to.


Key-Facts – Burnley vs Manchester City

  • Burnley have lost by 3+ goals at home in just 1 of their last 17 matches in the EPL
  • Man City have won by a 3-goal margin in just 2 of their last 15 away matches
  • Burnley haven’t lost by more than 2 goals in each of their last 4 meetings v City


Betting Tips Verdict

Burnley therefore stand a decent chance of at least keeping things tight here and could even nick a point.
