The Premier League is coming in its final stages, so in order to win the trophy, Man City need to keep on winning. Sure, they big favorites against Burnley, but the game is played at the Turf Moor where the hosts have been pretty decent lately. Can they cause a surprise on Sunday?

Burnley

This is a team that played in Europe this season, which is one of the reasons why they weren’t too great in the Premier League in the early months. But, a good run in the second half of the season has brought them to a safe place, far away from the relegation zone. Sure, they don’t have enough points to hope for a spot in Europe, but they would certainly like to finish the season in style. And they would achieve that by crashing Man City’s title dreams.

Why such a scenario doesn’t seem crazy is that Burnley have been in a decent form. They’ve won 3 out of 4 previous Premier League matches and the one they didn’t win was a draw against Chelsea at the Old Trafford. When it comes to their home performances, they’ve been even more impressive. At the Turf Moore, Burnley have won 6 out of previous 9 matches.

Another thing going in the favor of the hosts that we need to mention in this Burnley vs Manchester City prediction is that they’ve been pretty strong at the back. When you look at their stats, you will see that they’ve allowed 62 goals so far, which isn’t impressive. What’s impressive is that they’ve allowed only 19 goals in the second half of the season. Not many other teams have allowed so few goals as Burnley.

Manchester City

Because they’re leading a two-horse race with Liverpool in the Premier League, Man City need to keep on winning. Three rounds are left only and they need to win each of those matches if they wanna secure the title. Dropping points on Sunday would probably mean saying farewell to their title dreams.

But, does this mean our Burnley vs Manchester City betting tips will go in favor of the away team? Well, Man City is definitely the favorite here. They have the player quality on their side, not to mention that they’re in a good form.

What’s gotta worry them is that this team has struggled with defensive-minded teams, such as Burnley. This season, they lost to teams like Newcastle, Leicester, and Crystal Palace, each of which are famous for being very well organized at the back. And the same is the case with Burnley.

However, Man City have a fantastic record against Burnley, having won the previous two matches by 5:0 each. Still, when the matches were played at Turf Moore, Man City did have some problems. In the previous three matches at Burnley’s stadium, Man City won only once, while losing on one occasion and playing draw in the last match they played there.
