Manchester City vs Burnley Betting Predictions and Odds
City’s last game as a champion?
A derby is a derby. It’s not the biggest house number when Manchester City receives the Clarets, but Burnley is just 30 kilometers from Manchester. However, this game on Monday is not comparable to the duel between Manchester United and Manchester City.
It could be the last game as a master for City. Already in the English week Liverpool can bring the title under one roof. Manchester City can only try to postpone the time as far as possible. A win against Burnley on Monday is the first requirement.
In the Premier League classification, the Citizens are currently in second place. Before the Merseyside derby, the gap to Liverpool is 22 points. The new goal for Pep Guardiola is therefore to at least get the vice championship under wraps and possibly win the FA Cup and the Champions League after the League Cup.
Burnley is currently eleventh. The primary goal of staying in the classroom will hardly be put at risk. Perhaps the Clarets can even orientate themselves towards the Europa League, depending on how the FA Cup ends and which English clubs are ultimately eligible to play in the premier class.
On Monday between Manchester City and Burnley, however, the forecast is clearly towards a home win. The Citizens are one of the big players in English and European football. The odds comparison of the betting base therefore makes it clear that with odds of just over 1.1 on a city win, the roles are clearly distributed.
Burnley has made a huge leap forward this season. Sean Dyche’s team was in good shape before the Corona break and will be thrilled for the derby that kicks off on Monday at Etihas Stadium. The starting point speaks clearly between Manchester City and Burnley for a tip on a home win.
Manchester City – Statistics & current form
Exclusion from the European Cup for violations of financial fair play hangs like a sword of Damocles over the whole club. Manchester City is still trying to exploit all legal possibilities, but there is much to suggest that the Citizens will no longer be able to get out of the number and will only play at national level in the coming season.
16 points from the last five home games
Manchester City went into the Corona break with a bad feeling after the derby bankruptcy at United. It took over three months to be rehabilitated for this loss. The league is doing very well at home. The Citizens got 16 points from the last six home games. Therefore, between Manchester City and Burnley, the odds of lightblues success should be checked first and foremost.
The team from Pep Guardiola has already started again. On Wednesday Arsenal was a guest at the catch-up game at the Etihad Stadium and was hopelessly overwhelmed. Sterling, de Bruyne and Foden were the goalscorers in the safe 3-0 victory, in which the guests also had to accept a dismissal.
Guardiola still hopes for the premier class
The Citizens coach didn’t quite tick off the European Cup in the coming season. That’s why Pep Guardiola continues to demand the highest concentration, also on Monday in the derby against Burnley.
“The game against Burnley is so important to collect our points and secure our qualification for the Champions League next season as soon as possible.” – Pep Guardiola
However, whether the Citizens will actually play internationally will only be decided at the green table.
Eric Garcia will have to pass after a concussion from the Arsenal game in the derby. That probably also applies to John Stones because of an ankle injury. Otemendi, Fernandinho and Laporte are candidates for the first eleven. This also applies to Agüero and Bernardo Silva as well as the joker goal scorer Foden.
Probable lineup of Manchester City:
↳ Ederson – Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Mendy – de Bruyne, Rodri, Foden, Bernardo – Agüero, Sterling
↳ Coach: Guardiola

Burnley – Statistics & current form
To date, there have been three clubs that have managed the feat in one season in the Premier League, winning at Old Trafford near Manchester United and also earning three points with the Citizens. Most recently, the Liverpool was successful in the 2008/09 season. Burnley could be number four on this list after already making the point game at United victorious.
Extremely strong before the corona break
Nobody was happy about the compulsory break, but the Clarets were one of the strongest teams in the league before the lockdown. Burnley has been unbeaten in the Premier League for seven games. There was the aforementioned away win at Manchester United and point wins against the two London clubs Arsenal and Tottenham.
Whether Sean Dyche’s team will be a loser in the restart will have to be shown on Monday when the Clarets play their first match in over 100 days. It is certainly not an advantage to have to play against a team that has been able to collect competition practice again. There we have the next clue to make a prediction of the home side between Manchester City and FC Burnley.
First game in over three months
The last game of Burnley FC took place on March 7th. At that time, the Tottenham Hotspurs were guests at Turf Moor. Chris Wood gave the Clarets a lead after a quarter of an hour, but in the end it should only be enough to one point. Shortly after the restart, the Londoners came with a penalty to the 1-1 final.
The fact that the re-start is just the derby at Manchester City is a special sign of fate that coach Sean Dyche does not let dances break out of joy.
“I never enjoyed playing City because it mostly went wrong.” – Sean Dyche
The game against the big neighbor is always something special, but the memories are more tainted with negative experiences.
Whether his team is able to change anything is more than questionable. With Barnes, Wood, Gibson and Gudmundsson some important players are missing, which does not exactly improve the situation of the Clarets with the best bookmakers. However, with Lowton, at least one actor should be ready after a long knee injury.
Burnley probable lineup:
↳ Pope – Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor – Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, McNeil – Vydra, Rodriguez
↳ Coach: Dyche
