Burnley v Manchester City Preview, Premiership, Saturday 14th March 2015.

Troubling times for newly promoted side Burnley right now, with them only having ten league fixtures to turn their season around. Things were looking positive at one point yet for the last seven Premiership games they have now lost five and drawn the twice. This home game against the champions Manchester City is already being seen as an unlikely win even though their opponents have lost twice in their last five games in all competitions. Burnley have an extremely tough run of games coming up, with the likes of Southampton, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs among the clubs named. The easiest of their next five is the away fixture to Everton who themselves have seemed to of struggled this season.

Manchester City will see the away loss to Liverpool as a possible title loss result as league leaders Chelsea are now five points clear with a game in hand. With Barcelona their next opponents the bookmakers are not seeing the English Champions as possible candidates to go through into the last eight. However the blue side of Manchester do have some almost guaranteed points coming up after Burnley, with West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace yet to face before they then head over to the red side to face Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Burnley  Team News:

Burnley have a few injuries to contend with right now, with Dean Marney the first with his crucial knee ligaments the issue. We then have Irishman Cameron Dummigan missing with a bad hip, while Kevin Long is also out due to his ACL knee ligaments. Goals are still not flowing for the club, although Danny Ings is doing the best he can having scored nine Premiership goals to date.

Manchester City Team News:

The champions Manchester City right now have a completely clean bill of health with no current injury worries. Right now Sergio Aguero is still the clubs top scorer with seventeen league goals and six assists to his name. The Argentine has also scored six times in the Champions League competition which takes his tally to a total of twenty three so far this season.

In total we have 75 meetings recorded where Manchester City have won 31 to Burnley’s rather unpredicted 25. Meaning we have also had a total of 19 draws with the last result being the most recent.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the 75 games played out between these two clubs we have seen a total of 262 goals scored. Meaning we have an average of 3.5 goals scored per game, and looking at the last five fixtures we can clearly see betting over 3.5 goals would be a good option.

Even though Manchester City have lost twice in their last five fixtures in all competitions, they are still by far the better team in form here. Burnley themselves have lost three of their last five Premiership fixtures, but did manage a well earned couple of draws including the one against league leaders Chelsea.

Burnley v Manchester City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Premiership action on Saturday comes to you live on Sky Sports 1 High Definition and features relegation battling side Burnley verses last years champions Manchester City. The first fixture this season between these two sides did shock the fans and a majority of the neutrals watching the event. As the two ended up drawing the game 2 – 2 after Manchester City blew a two goal lead only for George Boyd and Ashley Barnes to pull two back.

Manchester City are by far the best team in form here, even though they have managed to lose twice in their last five appearances in all competitions. We had a loss to Barcelona in the 1st leg of the Champions League knock-out stages as well as the 2 – 1 loss recently to Liverpool in the Premiership. Burnley themselves are in serious trouble of going back down into the Championship and currently sit second from bottom with only a handful of points between them and bottom club Leicester City.

My predictions for Saturdays game between these two clubs will not see any shock results or special treatment given to strugglers Burnley. I can see the Champions going for the throats of their opponents and I can see us spectating a high scoring exciting game with City scoring the majority if not all of the goals. So for my first prediction I am going to go for Manchester City to win by a three goal advantage. The next I am going for is Sergio Aguero to score two or more goals during the match.
