Manchester City host Burnley this afternoon as the Premier League returns following this month’s international break.

In the most recent round of fixtures, City played out what was arguably game of the season so far against Liverpool, the 2-2 draw keeping Pep Guardiola’s side third in the table – one point behind the Reds and two behind leaders Chelsea.

Burnley, meanwhile, sit 18th in the standings, with Sean Dyche’s team yet to earn a victory this season.

The Clarets face a tough task in ending that winless streak as they take on the defending champions here.
