Manchester City look to extend an unbeaten run in competitive fixtures that stretches back to April when they host Sean Dyche’s Burnley this afternoon at the Etihad Stadium.
What, on paper, could appear a routine win for the Blues must be treated with caution considering Burnley have lost none of their last four Premier League away games – against Chelsea (win), Spurs (draw), Liverpool (draw) and Everton win). It’s a quite remarkable run by Sean Dyche’s side and something Pep Guardiola will be all too aware of as he looks to avoid any complacency in what is a busy period of fixtures.
Roger East is today’s referee and here are the starting lineups selected by Pep and Dyche:
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph, Fernandinho, Bernardo Silva, David Silva (c), De Bruyne, Sane, Aguero
Burnley XI: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Ward, Arfield, Cork, Hendrick, Brady, Defour, Wood
