⚽ Match stats: Man City to win with ease
After a slight wobble towards the end of last year, Man City have hit an excellent run of form. Guardiola’s side have won their last three Premier League games, beating Everton, Sheffield United and Newcastle. The same cannot be said for Burnley, who lost three and drew one of their last four games.
The hosts have been dominant across all of their last four league fixtures, averaging 75% possession and an xG of 2.36 per game. Burnley have struggled in their last four games, averaging 35% possession and an xG tally of 0.86 per game.
City dominated when they faced Burnley earlier this season. Guardiola’s side had two-thirds of the possession and accumulated a significantly higher xG tally, and won 3-0. We expect Man City to breeze past their opponents and win by a margin of at least two goals.
⚽ Man City (-1 handicap) @ 1.30
🎯 Shooting stats: Rodri and Walker to get involved going forward
Only four Man City players have averaged more shots per game than Rodri this season, with the Spaniard averaging 2.3 shots per 90 minutes. Rodri has registered three or more shots in five of his last six league starts.
Man City captain Kyle Walker has registered an average of 1.2 shots per game across his last five matches in all competitions. The Englishman has made at least one attempt at goal in all of his last five league appearances. The bookies are offering a generous price of 1.53 for Walker to register one or more shots.
⚽ Rodri to have 2+ shots @ 1.25
⚽ Kyle Walker to have 1+ shots @ 1.53
⛳ Corners stats: Man City to dominate the corner count
Man City have taken the second-highest number of corners in the league this season, averaging more than seven corners per game. Across their last five home games, Guardiola’s side have earned an average of 9.8 corners.
Burnley are clearly prone to conceding corners. Kompany’s side have conceded an average of 8.2 corners across their last five away matches.
Expect the majority of play to be in Burnley’s half, with Man City earning a minimum of seven corners in the process.
⚽ Over 6.5 Man City corners @ 1.50
🛑 Fouls stats: Vitinho to play dirty
Burnley full back Vitinho has committed an average of 1 foul per game in the league this season. The Brazilian has committed a foul in all of his last eight league appearances, at an average of 1.5 fouls across those fixtures.
Vitinho will likely have the unfortunate task of facing any of Jeremy Doku, Phil Foden or Jack Grealish. All three are a handful for defenders, drawing an average of at least 1.5 fouls per game this season.
⚽ Vitinho to commit 1+ fouls @ 1.44
