Manchester City welcome Burnley to the Etihad Stadium today as the Premier League gets back under way following the international break.

Before the pause in top-flight action, City were part of arguably the match of the season so far as they drew 2-2 with Liverpool, the result keeping Pep Guardiola’s team third in the table – one point behind the Reds and two behind leaders Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Burnley are 18th in the standings, with Sean Dyche’s side yet to claim a victory this term.
