With two consecutive years of winning the championship with a record number of points, Man City is facing many difficulties in defending the championship in this season. Highly regarded but the defending champion is quite short of breath in the race in the English Premier League and repeatedly stumbled in recent rounds. The latest, Pep Guardiola's students were disappointed when they were held to a 2-2 draw by Newcastle. Before that, they lost to their main rival Liverpool with the score 1-3.

Obviously, the tight schedule makes Man City no longer maintain his endurance. After a series of stumbling blocks, Man City has let Liverpool go far 11 points, this is an easy gap to fill, especially when the port city team is still playing extremely sublimated. Last season, Man City also leveled the 9-point gap with Liverpool to finally protect the throne. But the face of Man City this season can not make people believe that they will do it again, especially with 11 points, it is even more impossible.

Welcoming Man City in this round is Burnley, the team standing in the middle of the standings with 10th place and 18 points. This team is only 2 points behind the top 5, which is also a great motivation for them to try to collect points through each round. However, the recent performance of Burnley is very poor. They have lost 4 matches in the last 6 appearances. Must face Man City in this round but Burnley is considered completely capable of retaining 1 point. Playing on Turley Moor of Burnley has never been a simple task for any team. Whether to welcome strong or weak opponents, Burnley did well, they were unbeaten in the last 6 times to welcome guests, and further in the last 14 home matches, Burnley also lost only 1 match, drew 2 and won. The remaining 11 matches.

Burnley has been considered a "bait" of Manchester City in the past when they have been beaten up to 7 times by this side and only drew 1 match in the last 8 confrontations. In essence this is understandable because anyway Man City is still superior to Burnley in terms of class and force. It is not difficult to see the difference between the two teams. But at this time, when the Manchester team is having many problems, Burnley can fully use this opportunity to retain 1 point. Not only must face quite a great psychological pressure on. The fact that Liverpool are far away, Man City is also losing power due to injuries. Therefore, the level of football handicap in this match 1.5 / 2 left will be very difficult for the visitors to pass. Advise players to choose Burnley host to ensure safety.

Aguero's absence makes City's offensive ability greatly reduced, moreover, Burnley's athletic and energetic gameplay will also easily cut the situations on the ball of Man City. In addition, Man City recently conceded 1-2 goals per game. Obviously their defense is having problems. It is still possible that Man City will concede. That makes the ability to explode in this match higher and it is also investment advice for players in the match tonight.
