Manchester City News and Form
League leaders Manchester City will be looking to extend their winning form on home soil in the Premier League this season. They have won all four at the Etihad so far, scoring a total of thirteen in those four. So that’s a good average output and a Manchester City 2-0 correct score is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm). That gives them a good comfortable return after the international break. Manchester City have now won twenty of their last twenty-three (D2 L1) home games in the Premier League.
Raheem Sterling had a great game for England in their win over Spain on Monday and so his spirits should be high. He is at 10/11 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm). With the Citizens having collected a clean sheet in each of their last four games in the top flight, the natural temptation for Manchester City v Burnley betting tips is to back a home win to nil. City have not conceded a second-half goal at home this season and another decent proposition would be to back a Man City/Man City half-time/ full-time wager.
Burnley News and Form
After picking up one point in their opening five games of the season, the Clarets were turning the corner well with a W2 D1 record in their three games before the international break. That gave them a great lift and they scored seven goals in those three games. They have a tough couple of games to get through now as they will face Chelsea after having met the Citizens. Just because the Clarets may not see too much of the ball both teams NOT to score is at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm).
Away from Turf Moor, this season Burnley are W1 D1 L2 so far and they have given up a total of six goals and have failed to score in two for their four road games. In total home and away, they have only the two clean sheets this season. The Clarets have been at 0-0 at half time in three of their four away games this season. We don’t see that being a very likely outcome in this one. Manchester City to win to nil is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm).
Manchester City v Burnley Head to Head
