Man City v Burnley live match stream

Our live stream ahead of Saturday afternoon’s Premier League match Man City v Burnley is now up and running, kicking off at 3:00pm.

You can keep an eye on the commentary as it happens below, but first, we take a preview into the fixture, lineups, predictions and much more

In each side’s previous game, Man City beat Olympiakos 1-0. They reach the knockout rounds of the Champions League for the eighth successive season; Pep Guardiola’s side are unbeaten in 15 group stage games, having won all four this season; Fernandinho and Sergio Aguero make returns as substitutes.

Burnley beat Crystal Palace 1-0. They made Turf Moor a happy place again; Chris Wood’s goal sealing all three points for Sean Dyche’s side; It’s their first win of the season and they move out of the bottom three; Crystal Palace dropped a place to 10th in the Premier League table.


Aguero contract latest

Pep Guardiola said: He’s going to give us a decision. He’s still not in his best condition. His injury was long. He needs to be so sharp, the quality to score in the box we don’t have doubts but he need a bit of time, training sessions and the minutes he will have. After he has seven months ahead to show. He deserves with the club the fair talks to do what is best for him, for the club, for everyone.

I was lucky to play as a manager with incredible players. He was one of these for sure. But as a human being, I’ve never found a big star to be like him.

Aguero’s frame of mind

It’s difficult for me to talk about his feelings. The game against Olympiacos was hard. Especially for his son. It’s tough, normal. He knew Maradona well and his son, it’s his grandfather. It’s a sad situation for his family, but he’s okay. It’s a question for him and his family.

General squad fitness

Everything is good.

Scoring problems?

Important is the last games we played we created much more than the opponents. You can win the game or lose it but you are closest to winning if you have more than the opponents. In the Champions League to have 20 shots is an achievement. One day we will break and put on the table what we deserve. We need to put players in the box.

Is a big win close?

Maybe, after the other games when we score four, five goals we don’t create chances. I don’t think one game scoring four or five goals will change much. We have to continue the good feelings we’ve had. Tomorrow, we move forward to try and score goals.

Relief to have fully fit squad?

Much better to have everyone. It’s tough to have four players out, it’s important to have everyone for the rotation. To have everyone involved is important.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche on Tier 3

The rules are the rules and we still want people safe and well and that is the main thing

A stadium that size might just be ball boys

Any fans getting into stadiums is a start.

Home or away fans in the stadium is great, they have been waiting a long time and we have been waiting a long time

Dyche on the first win

We got that win and it was good.

Overall I thought we edged it and we often have to do that.

We get a nice three points and remind ourselves of what we do.

I have seen the table look better but you have to get a start point.

We have three clean sheets in the last five which is a feel of what we are trying to do

We often carve out some very good chances, which we did against Palace, and hopefully we can take more of them

Dyche on contracts

Those two (Jay Rod & Vyds) had options we have taken up early and we thought that was important

If you can’t activate outside of the group then you have to make sure you can inside of the group

We are open with our dialogue with other players and we hope for more in due course.

Dyche on injuries

Jack is making good progress is not there yet

Robbie and Dale are unlikely

Popey wont play at this stage because of the knock he had to his head.

More on Jay and Vydra

We are never blessed with huge finance so you have to safeguard what you have

We know there is a marketplace for us to shop in, we try and do that and it is not easy

But the first thing you can look after is your own players and that is we have been looking to do over a months.

Dyche on Man City

It is very difficult, you can catch any of the top sides when they are really on your day and they are capable of dismantling you.

You need to play well, work well on your shape, some decisions possibly and you need them to have a quiet day.

That is just the way it goes in the Premier League when you are us and that is what we are used to but we have never feared it.

We never look away from the challenge of it and we will take it on.

Manchester City to Win to Nil – 10/11 with FanTeam

Manchester City have not been themselves this season. Their Champions League form has been a shining light in an otherwise poor season. Their next opponents are in the relegation zone after an awful start and tend to struggle badly against the league’s top sides.

City have handed out a few thrashings to Burnley in the past and this is exactly the sort of fixture that City have to make a statement of intent in to avoid talks of a ‘crisis’ becoming any louder. Burnley’s attack is blunt and even a leaky City backline should be able to handle them.

Mark Lawrenson’s prediction: Man City 3-0 Burnley
