Manchester City will look to maintain their top spot in the Premier League standings when travel to Turf Moor to take on a relegation-threatened Burnley in their league Matchday 31 on Saturday evening with kickoff at 17:00 EAT. Burnley were on resurgent from the beginning of February and having stayed in the top-flight for the past six straight seasons, many believed that it was their time to revive their campaign. However their revival has abruptly been brought to shuddering halt as they have lost their last three league matches without scoring a goal in the run. This has really come at a bad time for the Clarets, who now sit in the 19th spot four points above the rock-bottom Norwich and four points adrift of Everton in the 17th, although they do have games in hand  on the likes of Leeds and Watford who are above them. Saturday’s results will not really affect Burnley’s future whether they remain in the top-flight or not, but they have two huge games against Everton and Norwich City that come after the weekend’s clash, which could play a major role in potentially avoiding relegation. They will therefore need to put in a performance that will boost their confidence ahead of the two. In their way, though, stands the champions, who they have not beaten since March 2015, losing each of the last nine matches between the two sides and besides the Citizens are also under pressure to claim the three points. Pep Guardiola’s side head into the match off the back off a 0-0 draw against Partick Vieira’s Crystal Palace in their previous league fixture before the international break. The draw saw their once-vast lead reduced to one points and they cannot afford anymore slip-ups as the race for the title intensifies. Its going to be a really fascinating title race with now just eight matches remaining. City of course have the one point advantage, but to keep that they need to constantly post victories as their counterparts, Liverpool, don’t seem to be stopping anytime soon and not now anyways. Guardiola’s City will fancy their chances as they have a good head to head record against the Clarets and have won in their last four visits to Turf Moor. It should be a routine win.
