Burnley Can Make Life Difficult For Manchester City At Turf Moor

Manchester City's relentless march towards the Premier League title continues apace and they could move 18 points clear at the summit of the table if they win Saturday's early kick-off against Burnley at Turf Moor...

  • City are yet to win by more than a two-goal margin in away games at any of the current top-ten in the Premier League
  • Sergio Aguero has scored six in his last four against Burnley
  • Burnley's 12 home league games have produced 17 goals

City Cruising

Pep Guardiola's men are in cruise control now and it will come as no surprise to see that they are 1/4 for yet another win this weekend, with the Citizens having won each of the past four Burnley v Manchester City fixtures in all competitions.

As with so many teams, Sergio Aguero has caused the downfall of Burnley on numerous occasions as he has scored in each of his last four appearances against the Clarets, scoring six goals in total, and he is 5/2 favourite to score first on Saturday (Ladbrokes).

City come up against a Burnley side that has gone eight without a win (drawn four, lost four) during a difficult spell but Sean Dyche's men are always difficult to play and we fancy that they could offer some value in side markets on home soil.

Where's The Value?

Burnley always keep things tight as their 25 league games this season have only produced 42 goals, while their 12 home matches have witnessed just 17 goals! Under 2.5 goals has paid out in 19 of their 25 outings, including in 10 of 12 at Turf Moor, and under 2.5 goals is available at 5/4 (Coral).

It is difficult to back 'unders' whenever this Manchester City side are involved though and we prefer to stick with the notion that Burnley are able to make life difficult. With that in mind, the hosts are even-money to cover +2 goals in the handicap market (Betfred) and that looks like a decent bet when you consider the fact that six of City's ten away league wins have come by a single goal margin, while the league leaders are yet to cover -2 goals in any of their away matches at the current top-ten in the division.
