Burnley will prove to be a tough test for Pep Guardiola’s men. They’re coming off the back of two consecutive 3-0 victories in the Premier League, and Turf Moor is always a hard place to go to at the best of times, let alone when confidence is soaring for Sean Dyche’s men. And yet the home side are out to 14.25 for the victory, with the visitors at 1.22 and the draw 6.35.

The champions know that can ill afford to have any more slip ups if they’re to catch runaway leaders Liverpool, who are cutting a relentless pace at the top of the table. This will be a tough encounter for both sides, however you expect the quality of Pep’s boys to eventually win out.
