Manchester City will be looking to continue their fine winning run in Premier League as they host Burnley on Saturday.
The Blues have been unstoppable so far this season. On the other side Sean Dyche’s men can offer Guaardiola’s men a real test. In their first eight matches of Premier League, they remain unbeaten after visits to Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton.
Man City Boss looking to refresh his line-up, having named the same starting line-up for the last three matches.
WHEN AND WHERE?
Man City host Burnley at Etihad Stadium with kick-off scheduled for 3pm on Saturday, October 21.
Other than long term injury victim Benjamin Mendy and the City skipper Vincent Kompany who suffered a calf injury playing for Belgium, the rest of his squad are fit to face the Clarets.
Sergio Aguero who has been on the bench for the last two games, is fully fit and ready for tomorrow.
Pep Guardiola in press conference said:
“[Kompany is] Not ready. Not yet. Everybody else is okay, everybody is fit.
“The game against Stoke, he [Aguero] had done just one training session. The game against Napoli he was ready and, of course, he’s ready for tomorrow.”
On the other hand Burnley has no new injuries or suspension. Dean Marney, Jonathan Walters and Nahki Wells all remain injured.
Sean Dyche: “I think we all know, arguably they’re one of the best collection of individual footballers in Europe.
“The team looks more familiar with each other and that comes with time.
“The manager, rightly so, has been stood by and allowed to work.”
Pep Guardiola: “They deserve a lot of credit.
“They were in the Championship and then Premier League. A lot of respect for what they have done.
“They had a lot of problems last season to win away, but this season they have taken points at Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham, Everton.
“They are masters at attacking the channel. They always defend a lot of people in the box. They are physically strong. We have to play quick, take advantage.
“Their results away have been fantastic.”
