7:30pm – Man City v Burnley

Man City -2

This is the exact type of game that Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City typically let loose and score an abundance of goals.

Playing at home against a newly-promoted side attempting to play an expansive game, City customarily overwhelm their opponents by playing a more developed style of that expansive game plan.

It should be no different on Wednesday night against a Burnley side that seems to be hurtling irresistibly towards an instant relegation back to the Championship.

Vincent Kompany’s side sit second-bottom in the league at present, picking up just 12 points in their opening 21 games and finding themselves five points adrift of 17th-placed Everton, who have suffered a ten-point deduction.

They have conceded 42 league goals – at a rate of exactly two per game – and boast the second-worst defensive record in the division.

Burnley have conceded 16 goals in five games against the current top five and lost 3-0 when City travelled to Turf Moor on the opening weekend of the season.

There is little to suggest they will fare any better on Wednesday.

Kevin De Bruyne to Have Two or More Shots on Target

It was in Manchester City’s season opener against Burnley that Kevin De Bruyne last started a league game for the champions.

The Belgian maestro hobbled off midway through that 3-0 win and only returned to the City fold in their thrilling 3-2 win over Newcastle earlier in January, scoring one and assisting another.

There is a very good chance that De Bruyne makes his first league start in five months on Wednesday night and he should make a pivotal impact.

In a surprise to absolutely no one, Burnley boast one of the highest averages in the league in terms of shots faced, averaging 15 shots faced per game in the Premier League.

Only five teams have faced more shots than Kompany’s side this season, while only Liverpool have attempted more shots than Manchester’s City, who average almost 17 shots per game.

It is highly likely that City pepper the Burnley goal with shots on Wednesday and there is a good chance that De Bruyne will land at least two shots on target.

    7:30pm – Tottenham v Brentford

    Both Teams to Score

    Simply going off their last Premier League games, we should be in for a goal-fest on Wednesday night.

    Tottenham’s 2-2 draw at Old Trafford was among the most open and entertaining games of the season, while Brentford’s 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest had a bit of everything, from world-class goals to shocking defending and controversial efforts to move the referee’s foam.

    Tottenham, under Ange Postecoglou, are utterly transformed from the dark days of Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte and are now one of the most exciting teams in the league.

    Goals are almost guaranteed in Tottenham games, with Postecoglou’s side practically incapable of keeping a clean sheet.

    They have managed to do so just five times in the league this season and have conceded eight goals in their last four league outings.

    Both teams have scored in 11 of their last 12 league games, while both teams have scored in six of Brentford’s last seven games in the league.

    Brentford, with Ivan Toney back leading the line, boast a very good chance of scoring at least once but have almost no chance of keeping a clean sheet considering they have not done so since a 2-0 win at Chelsea in October.

    Over 6.5 Tottenham Corners

    Spurs have attempted the fourth-most shots in the league this season, which almost directly corresponds with their position in the league’s corner charts.

    Postecoglou’s side have won 120 corners (the sixth-most in the league), which translates to an average of roughly six per game.

    They also boast the fifth-highest possession average in the league, averaging 59.9% possession this season, far outweighing Brentford’s average of 48.7%.

    With that in mind, Spurs are likely to dominate for large parts on Wednesday and should win a high volume of corners.

    In nine games against teams in the top half this season, Brentford have conceded 66 corners at a rate of over seven per game and it wouldn’t be at all surprising if they matched that average on Wednesday.

    Tottenham to Receive the Most Cards

    Discipline has been one of Spurs’ biggest problems under Postecoglou.

    It was directly responsible for their 4-1 defeat at home to Chelsea, while it has also led to a number of suspensions for Postecoglou’s fairly threadbare squad.

    Spurs are the third-worst-disciplined side in the Premier League this season, picking up 51 bookings and four red cards in 21 games.

    Brentford, meanwhile, find themselves in seventh-place in the league’s disciplinary table and boast the relatively decent record of 43 bookings and one sending off in 20 games.

    In the reverse fixture, Spurs picked up four yellow cards to Brentford’s one and they are good value to receive more cards again on Wednesday.
