Betting Tip: Burnley vs Manchester City
Sean Dyche will be hoping his players can get back to winning ways as they welcome high-flying Manchester City to Turf Moor to kick off the Premier League weekend. City sit 12 points clear of the chasing pack in the table and need to keep winning to deter the teams following them whilst the Clarets have dropped to 8th after a remarkable start to the season.

The Clarets have enjoyed an amazing first half of the season and sit 8th with only 14 games remaining and they have a remarkable 34 points to their name. They are however, without a win in their last 8 matches in all competitions and will need to arrest the slide quickly to remain in contention for the European places at the end of the season. Chris Wood still tops the scoring charts for Burnley with 5 goals and his return from injury looks much needed for Sean Dyche’s men.
Bouncing back from a defeat was always going to be the toughest test for Manchester City who have displayed real mental toughness in their last 3 games. With only 14 games to play, the Blues sit 12 points clear in the Premier League title race and are very much the team to catch with 65 points to their name. Sergio Aguero is the club’s top scorer this season with 23 goals so far in all competitions as City continue to fight on four fronts.
