The BUR vs MCI match preview –
Defending champions of the Premier League, Manchester City will be taking on Burnley on Saturday to expand their lead in the table.
Burnley played European football this season, and it affected their performances in the domestic league. Now since they have been ousted, the team is finally doing well in the Premier League. Coach Sean Dyche admitted that the pressure of playing football every three days was getting to the players, and this freedom of weekly games has helped him instilling his philosophy in a more assertive manner. They are finally winning games and also grinding out draws against big teams, but still not on the level at what they were last season.
Meanwhile, Manchester City are having to fight their way to get league leader supremacy this season. What was thought to be another washout season in their favour has turned out to be a three-way street fight between them, Chelsea and Liverpool. Manager Pep Guardiola has a battle in front of him this season and it will test his coaching ability. Manchester City still does have the best squad in the league, but the injuries have caused them to be a bit inconsistent this season.
