BUR vs MCI Dream11 prediction: Burnley will aim to derail City’s league campaign on Sunday. We take a look at the Dream 11 prediction for the game.
Manchester City registered a commanding 2-0 win over city rivals Manchester United in the Premier League in the mid-week fixture.
Bernardo Silva and Lero Sane scored for City to push them back to the top of the table, before Liverpool regained the top spot after a 5-0 thumping of the bottom-placed Huddersfield last night.
Burnley, meanwhile, showed great defensive resolve as they held Chelsea to a draw on Monday night at Stamford Bridge. Even when Chelsea’s defender David Luiz accused Sean Dyche of being ‘anti-football’, the Burnley manager applauded his players after the game.
As Manchester City aims to take a one-point lead over Liverpool again, let’s take a look at the Burnley vs Man City Dream 11 prediction.
BUR vs MCI Dream 11 prediction:
The Manchester City goalkeeper will aim to continue on his brilliant form as the side faces Burnley at Turf Moor. I expect Ederson to be considerably free in this game as Sean Dyche likes his team to play defensively.
Moreover, the side is not facing the threat of relegation and would rather aim for derailing Manchester City’s campaign. Even a point against Guardiola’s side would be a bonus for Burnley.
Defence: Tarkowski, Taylor, Laporte, Walker
Tarkowski will be having a busy afternoon as he would aim to put on a tight shift against Manchester City. Charlie Taylor has arguably been the best player for Burnley this year, and is definitely one of the top left-backs in the Premier League this season. I expect him to step up in this game.
Aymeric Laporte and Kyle Walker, on the other hand, have been impressive for Manchester City and have won quite a few points for their defensive as well as attacking performances.
Midfield: Westwood, Bernardo Silva, Sane
Westwood, like Taylor, has been yet another impressive player for Burnley this year. The midfielder will likely be having a defensive role but would keep an eye for attacking passes which might give Burnley the breakthrough in the game.
Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane are expected to start against Burnley. Both the players were in the scoresheet for the game against Manchester United.
Attack: Barnes, Aguero, Sterling
Ashley Barnes scored against Chelsea in the Monday night fixture and will be the main man for Burnley as he would aim to utilise whatever little breaks Burnley could catch in the game.
Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, meanwhile, will be the key players for Guardiola’s side.
