Today’s Premier League fixtures start at Turf Moor, as the early fixture sees Burnley entertaining league leader Manchester City.
City have been highly impressive this season, and such is their form that they could even clinch the title in early April and look likely to beat the record margin of 18 points.
Burnley have also had a good season, and still look on course for their highest position in the table since 1974. That said, including the FA Cup, they have now gone nine games without a win – and this is very likely to be number 10.
City have already played the home team twice this season, winning 3-0 in the league and 4-1 in the FA Cup. It’s difficult to see any other result today.
With David Silva missing on occasions this season–he’s doubtful again today–Kevin de Bruyne has stepped up to the plate and been the driving force in midfield. We expect the Belgian star to again show the full array of his delicious talents, and take the 4/1 on offer that he is named man of the match.
Recommendation: De Bruyne to be man of the match, 1 pt, at 4/1, William Hill
