Burnley vs Manchester City
England Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 26th November 2016,
Kick-off at 12:30 UK.
Venue: Turf Moor, Burnley.
Pep Guardiola and his men will be travelling to Turf Moor this weekend to take on mid-table Burnley. This Manchester City side will aim to move back top of the table after slipping down to 3rd position in the previous weeks.
The way things are in the Premier League table, the League is getting more exciting than ever. The top 4 teams needs nothing less than a win if they want to maintain their various position. Manchester City are in the 3rd position with 27 points, same point as Liverpool in second place and a point less than Chelsea on top.
On the flip side, Burnley have a hard task at hand as they have one of the most difficult fixture this weekend. Coming into this game from a 4-0 way defeat to West Brom, Burnley will be demoralized despite playing at home. They need to prepare in a hard-baked manner if they must get something out of this game.

Burnley vs Manchester City: Prediction
It has been highlighted a number of times that Manchester City are way short of their very best. And they do look unconvincing while playing away from home. This was evident in their 1-1 draw at Monchengladbach in midweek Champions League fixture.
Burnley may be a promoted side, but they have a good record at home this season. They were only beaten twice in the 7 matches so far, both by a narrow 1-0 margin. So we can expect Burnley to give a tough test to the Pep Gaurdiola’s team. However, City are likely to edge a win and most probably by a narrow margin.
