Manchester City Preview – Easy three points for City?

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are in third place in the Premier League after seven games played. So far, the Citizens have collected 14 points after four wins, two draws and a defeat. Chelsea are top, while Liverpool sit second on 15.

Man City are undefeated in the Premier League since an opening weekend loss at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Since then, the champions have won four and drawn two. Before the international break, the Citizens were involved in a four-goal thriller at Anfield, leaving with a deserved point in a 2-2 draw.

Our betting prediction:
Man City to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 1218 GMT, Friday 15 October)

Pep’s boys will want a comfortable victory here before Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League trip to Bruges. In truth, Man City should cruise to victory, and the bookies are offering just 1/9 for the home win.

Burnley Preview – Another heavy loss at the Etihad?

Burnley have a miserable recent record against Man City, and it could get even worse this weekend. Sean Dyche’s troops head to the Etihad Stadium having failed to win any of their opening seven. They are one of only four clubs yet to pick up three points this term.

Burnley have struggled so far, sitting in the drop zone after amassing just three points from a possible 21. The Lancashire side lost four of their opening five but have responded with back-to-back draws. Before a goalless draw at home with Norwich City, Burnley held Leicester City to a 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium.

Manchester City vs Burnley Betting Advice

Man City won all three league and cup meetings between the pair last season. In the league, they won 5-0 at the Etihad and 2-0 at Turf Moor. The Clarets have picked up just one win over Man City since 1974.


Key Facts – Manchester City vs Burnley Betting Tip

  • Man City have won each of the last eight league and cup meetings
  • City have won four and drawn two of their past six in the Premier League
  • Burnley have yet to win a game in the league this term


This looks like a mismatch on paper, and Man City should be far too strong for the struggling Clarets once again. A Riyad Mahrez hat-trick and goals from Benjamin Mendy and Ferran Torres gave Man City a resounding 5-0 win when the duo locked horns at the Etihad last term. You can get 9/4 for the hosts to win -3 in this one.

Man City will be looking to dominate the game from start to finish. With that in mind, check out the decent odds of evens for Guardiola’s team to win both halves on Saturday.
