MCI Vs BUR Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: City look to address their woes as a favourable set of fixtures looms for the side starting today.
The next one month could end up being a watershed moment for Manchester City in the Premier League. In dire need of a string of wins as they look to stay abreast with Liverpool, the relatively easy slate of encounters awaiting City can easily see the side rekindle a season which has been like a flickering candle in the wind till now.
Enduring his worst as a manager, Guardiola finds his City sitting in 13th spot with a meagre 12 points after 8 matches. The 2-0 defeat to Tottenham the last time around was the biggest testament of the dreary brand of football the club has deployed till now in the Premier League, one which has seen the club win just twice in its last five outings.
With Liverpool being resplendent as ever, City already stare at an eight point deficit separating them from the top of the league. Things need to change and change fast for the side, a club which is fast running out of time in the competition.
MCI Vs BUR Fantasy Probable Winner
Today’s tie should finally offer some kind of solace to City. They are up against a Burnley side which has offered extremely little, a team City should manage to ease past without any qualms.

Top Goal Scorer
- Raheem: 2 Goals
- Wood: 2 Goals
Dealt a colossal blow ahead of the showdown with goal-keeper Pope ruled out with an injury, Burnley will turn to Bailey Peacock-Farrell to fill into the gargantuan hole vacated by Pope. And with Bailey showing he can step up on the frugal chances he’s gotten, we’ll be moving in with the goal-keeper for this one.
Although Burnley did manage to move out of the bottom three with their first win of the season the last time around, its clear that the club has a long road to scour before it can actually emerge as a daunting attacking setup. The side has scored a meagre four goals till now, a laggard attack which leaves the club on the anvil of the relegation.
This is just the side City would have wanted to come across as they look to ingrain in place a much needed cleansheet today. We envisage the side peddling out a shutdown to see us roll in Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo and Aymeric Laporte into our unit.
Left back in England for City’s clash against Olympiacos, Kevin de Bruyne earned a much needed rest ahead of today’s fixture. Relatively fresh, he’ll be eager to act as the architect of his side’s win and once again pull the strings for the side in attack.
Burnley on the other hand will see us compensate for the picks from the side in this slot. We begin with Ashley Westwood who has the one goal and Dwight McNeil who has the one assist, players who have contributed to 50% of the side’s goals this term.
Midfielder Josh Brownhill has been one of the most solid names for the club this term with him quashing attacking plays with will with his tackles and blocks.
We begin this one-two of picks from City with the selection of the side’s top scorer Raheem Sterling who has the two goals and one assist to show for his troubles. Striker Sergio Aguero could finally slot his way back into his team’s playing 11 to see the guile filled striker to complete the duo.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His three assists see Kevin captain our team with Aguero being the vice-captain.
Bailey, Kyle, Laporte, Dias, Cancelo, Kevin, Ashely, Brownhill, Dwight, Aguero, Raheem
