Manchester City hosts Burnley in round 8 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, October 16h at Etihad Stadium (Manchester)
In England, there is no pronounced leader who wins all the matches. Manchester City is no exception. Yes, today the team is on the 3rd line of the English Premier League standings, but the Citizens are unstable. They send 11 goals to the nets of RB Leipzig and Arsenal, but then they cannot upset Southampton (0-0). The defeat to PSG in the Champions League game with a 2-0 score and the same number of goals conceded from Liverpool in the Premier League also raise many questions. It can be seen that Josep Guardiola is dissatisfied with the roster, as he constantly rotates it, but some players simply drop out of the game. One such example is newcomer Jack Grealish. The club paid crazy money for him, but the player is not impressive so far. Emeric Laporte also plays poorly in defense.

Burnley is among four teams that have not gained a single victory in the current English Premier League. Three points scored due to draws sent the Clarets to the relegation zone. Sean Dyche’s charges managed to earn two points in the last two rounds. If a 2-2 draw in the away match against Leicester is an achievement, then a goalless home game against the main outsider Norwich, who scored only two goals in seven rounds, is a disastrous result. Creating scoring chances is Burnley's main concern. The Clarets had a very low xG in the previous two matches: 0.43 and 0.58, respectively.
Burnley looks very weak: low xG in matches, a place in the relegation zone, five goals scored and eleven conceded. Powerful Manchester City will play at the native Etihad Stadium. Moreover, the Sky Blues have a complete advantage in head-to-head confrontations. The Citizens beat Burnley in eight games in a row with a total score of 30-1. As a rule, they gain confident victories with a difference of two goals. We expect a similar result this time.
Prediction for the match: Manchester City to win with -2.0 handicap
