Man City v Burnley predictions: Premier League preview, line-ups & betting tips

Cape Town- Burnley boss Sean Dyche has described speculation linking him with the Leicester City vacancy as a "paper story". But the Clarets are a well drilled and underrated unit, who will stick to a rigid game plan and are more than capable of not just frustrating City, but maybe even nicking a goal.
Under normal circumstances this would seem a fairly straight forward home win for the Blues - but they do not seem like a team with any kind of fluency or harmony now, and last weeks loss to Crystal Palace made it two league losses on the bounce for Chelsea and their third of the season already.
However, Guardiola has said that he and his players "respect" Sean Dyche's side, who are undefeated in away games against Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Everton.
Manchester City have yet to keep a clean sheet in the six Premier League games between these sides.
Their last three Premier League matches at the Etihad have seen them score 17 goals - an average of 5.67 goals per game. They'll most probably need to defend again this weekend but Dyche's side have nothing to lose and have already gained so much. With Joe Hart lucky not to concede a penalty for a foul on Chris Wood, Burnley seemed to be proving the old adage about it being harder to beat a team of ten men.
Kompany is an outstanding player when fit and has been a real servant for City since he joined in 2008, but his injury troubles in recent years cast doubt on his long-term future at the club, particularly as he will be 32 at the end of the season.

While Guardiola is not often mentioned in the same breath as the phrase "mind games", this compliment is so great that it makes you wonder what motivated the Catalan to lavish this praise on an undoubtedly good side. Added to the technical ability which saw Dyche set a new club record to acquire his services, Defour has become the embodiment of the way Burnley approach the game. They only managed to toil to a 1-1 draw with West Ham United in their last game. It's their tightly rehearsed organisation which will prove the biggest problem for City though, a team who have found goals easy to come by of late.
This remarkable "Perfect 10" has seen the team net 36 goals, and they now stand top of the Premier League table with 22 points from eight games - while opening their Champions League campaign with a hat-trick of successes.
