Manchester City vs Burnley Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Monday, 22 June 2020. Kick-off 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET at the Etihad Stadium.
The Citizens made no mistake in their return to active duty despite having hung up their boots for over more than three months. Arsenal were dispatched mercilessly by Pep Guardiola’s men.
The fact that the league is out of their grasps, and that they have been banned by UEFA for the next two years, seem to have motivated the Citizens to perform even better. Moreover, they do have their CL Round of 16 second leg coming up against Real Madrid.
We can surely count on Guardiola’s men to keep displaying absurd talent, and to pile on, note that they have a phenomenal h2h record against this opponent over the years. Likely, expect a convincing Manchester City win this Monday.
Manchester City vs Burnley: Head-to-head (h2h)

- 14 of the former 15 wins had gone to the two-time reigning champions.

Manchester City vs Burnley: Prediction
The Citizens recorded a 3-0 win at home the last match-day, against Arsenal. Kevin De Bruyne had played the role of the chief destructor with a goal as well as an assist to complete the Gunners’s humiliation.
In the meantime, the Clarets were held to a 1-1 draw at home the past match-day (before the break), by Tottenham. The hosts had found an early goal, but it was equalized by a Dele Alli penalty just after half-time.
As things stand, the Citizens are easily the favorites. They have been the best team in the country for a long time, and it’s only been a year or so since Liverpool have risen to challenge them. And importantly, the Citizens have a terrific h2h record over this rival.
In fact, they have recorded 14 of the prior 15 h2h wins, and are on a five-game winning run in such fixtures at this venue. They have even scored a total of 36 goals from the last ten such clashes at this stadium, and have scored two or more goals in 100% of match-ups at this ground.
In addition, the Clarets have registered a single win against this rival in the prior two decades, and they even conceded four or more goals in four of the past six h2h encounters. Considering all these stats, expect another dominating win by Manchester City this Monday.
