Manchester City will be looking to continue their imperious form against Burnley when they meet at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola’s side have won their last 6 home games against the Clarets by an aggregate score of 24-2, with consecutive 5-0 scorelines amongst those results.

In fact, City have scored more goals past Burnley than any other opponent has past Sean Dyche’s team in the Premier League era.

Burnley secured their elusive first league win of the season against Crystal Palace last Monday, lifting them out of the relegation zone.

However, the Clarets are still without a win on the road since July, and the form guide suggests they may struggle to end that record at the Etihad on Saturday.

The return of Fernandinho and Benjamin Mendy midweek was a boost for City on the injury front, but Nathan Ake remains out with a hamstring strain.

Burnley saw the return of Ben Mee to the fold recently, but Nick Pope is unlikely to play between the sticks after suffering a bang to the head last time out. Northern Ireland international Bailey Peacock-Farrell is Pope’s likely replacement.

Robbie Brady, Dale Stephens and Jack Cork all remain absent.

Manchester City v Burnley is a 3pm kick off on Saturday 28th November
