I've given flowers to their opponents!

"Burnley have been in the same situation many, many times and they always survive - why? Because they don't give up. That's why Sean Dyche is an excellent coach," Guardiola told a press conference.

"I am a great admirer. Always true to his principles. That's why he has been with the team as long as he has and has a new multi-year contract ahead of him," the Spaniard said of his great admiration for Dyche.

How is Manchester City coming?

Regarding Manchester City and their home results, they have won twice and drawn once in three games played so far, making them a very difficult team to beat when playing at their stadium. On the other hand, Burnley have been defeated twice in their three games played, which are figures that do not give an overly optimistic balance for the match against Manchester City.


8:17 AM2 months ago

How are Burnley coming along?

On the away side, Burnley had to settle for a 0-0 draw against Norwich City during the last game, so they come into the match with the illusion of recovering points that were left on the road. So far, of the team's seven Premier League matches, they have won zero of them with five goals scored and 11 conceded.

Key Player Burnley:

From England to the world, Nick Pope will be the player to watch for this match. From 2016 onwards, the Englishman has played 10,044 minutes with the vinotinto jersey in which he has become an authentic reference under the three posts with 133 saves and 39 clean sheets, he also has 112 appearances in Burnley's starting lineup. Also, on 5 occasions he has received the yellow card and only once he was sent off with a straight red card, Pope could be the unbalancing factor that puts the balance in favor of the visiting team.

2:33 PM2 months ago

Key Player Manchester City:

Joao Cancelo has become one of the fundamental pieces in Pep Guardiola's possession, the right-back has gone from strength to strength since his arrival in the Premier League being an undisputed starter and increasing much more and much more his value in the transfer market. Last season he was selected in the best eleven of the English league where he stood out for playing 28 games as a starter, scoring 2 goals and contributing with 3 assists, also, he is one of the most experienced figures of the Portuguese national team so for this match, Cancelo will be the player to follow for the possible problems he could cause Tottenham when attacking.

Difficult but not impossible

For their part, Burnley are at the bottom of the table with 3 points, which places them in 18th place overall, the result of 3 draws and 4 defeats so far this season. However, despite the poor results obtained at the beginning of the season, they are not sunk in the last place, as Newcastle and Norwich are below them and at risk of going to the silver division. With a win they could move up places and gradually move away from the relegation drama zone.
2:03 PM2 months ago

In search of the lead

The Citizens have had a great start to the tournament with 4 wins, 2 draws and a loss that keeps them with 14 points out of a possible 21 in 3rd place overall, however, they were not the only ones who started the championship with great intensity as Liverpool and Chelsea have managed to complicate the leadership of the Premier as they have been placed ahead of them. Likewise, they are in high spirits because in the last game they gave a lesson on how to play soccer in a thrilling 2-2 game against Liverpool, a match where Pep's pupils showed that they have the level and the squad to fight for the championship this season.
