Burnley v Manchester City Prediction & Betting Tips, 3rd February 201831st January 2018 / lee
Burnley v Manchester City Premier League Preview, 3rd February 3.00pm
The Clarets won’t be looking forward to this fixture at Turf Moor on the weekend particularly. They get the challenge of trying to keep Manchester City quiet. Burnley’s season has been a little difficult for them since mid-December while the Citizens will be looking to respond to having failed to win either of their last two Premier League away games.
Burnley v Manchester City Betting Odds*
Man City 2/7, Draw 9/2, Burnley 9/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 30th, 2018 at 8:50 p.m.)
Burnley News and Form
A tough game for the Clarets as they host Champions-elect Man City. The Clarets have lost their last three straight at Turf Moor in the top flight in what has been a really tough run of home fixtures. The defeats were against Spurs, Liverpool and then Manchester United and the Clarets are big underdogs for this one too. That leaves Burnley’s home form now at W5 D2 L5 for the season and they are struggling in front of goal. The Clarets have now mustered up just the one goal in their last three home fixtures and therefore Manchester City to win to nil at William Hill for even money odds is going to appeal* (betting odds taken January 31st at 4:47 p.m.). A notable feature of Burnley’s season is the lack of goals in games at Turf Moor and just 17% of their games there this season have made it above 2.5 goals. So it is worth a flutter on this one going under the goal line? Burnley have scored eight goals on home soil this season, conceding just the nine through a brilliant defensive effort. They have taken a clean sheet in 50% of their games at Turf Moor this term.
Manchester City News and Form
Manchester City’s away form has seen them only collect the one point from their last two on the road. That point was in a draw at Crystal Palace, the game that ended their record-breaking winning streak, and then they suffered their first league loss of the season as they went down 4-3 at Liverpool. So will they get back to winning ways on the road? There is a good chance of that happening as they are impressively W10 D1 L1 for the season away from the Etihad. They have taken some big hits through injury losses, but still, Sergio Aguero is there and heads up the William Hill first goalscorer market at 5/2 odds* (betting odds taken January 31st at 4:47 p.m.). The Citizens have averaged 2.3 goals per game on their travels this season while they have taken a clean sheet in 58% of their road games, conceding just the nine away goals all season. They have three cleans sheets in their last four away games so there is a decent chance that they will hold the Clarets at bay you would think. In the William Hill correct score market a Manchester City 2-0 is the shortest-priced option at 11/2* (betting odds taken January 31st at 4:47 p.m.).
Burnley v Manchester City Head to Head
The Citizens have won three of their last four visits to Burnley (L1) and they have taken two wins over the Clarets already this season. City took a 3-0 home win over Burnley in their home league game against them, while rounding out as 4-1 winners in an FA Cup third round tie against the Clarets. From the seven previous Premier League meetings, Man City are W3 D2 L2 against Burnley. Each of the last four meetings in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals
Who will win – Burnley v Manchester City Predictions
Manchester City should just keep rolling on with the Clarets having struggled for returns recently. Just because City haven’t been at their prolific best on the road recently, it is worth backing them to perhaps win at Turf Moor by just the two-goal margin.
