After securing passage to the last 16 of the Champions League, it’s back to the Premier League for Manchester City with a potential banana skin away at Burnley. Some may laugh at that idea, but the last time City visited Turf Moor, in March 2015, they were beaten 1-0 by the hosts, and having had just two days to rest between games, the team must remain focused.
Being the early kickoff, a win for City would send them top of the league and put some pressure on Liverpool, who host Sunderland, and Chelsea, who have a tough game against Spurs later today.
Andre Marriner is today’s referee and here’s how Pep Guardiola and Sean Dyche have lined their teams up with Fernandinho named captain:
Burnley: Robinson, Keane, Mee, Lowton, Ward, Boyd, Berg Gudmundsson, Defour, Marney, Vokes, Hendrick
Manchester City XI: Bravo, Sagna, Otamendi, Kolarov, Clichy, Fernandinho, Fernando, Yaya Touré, Sterling, Nolito, Aguero
