Manchester City -3
Julian Alvarez to Score
Phil Foden to Score
Kevin De Bruyne to Have 1 or More Shots on Target

Wednesday 7.30pm: Manchester City v Burnley
Premier League match at The Etihad

Manchester City -3

There will be a lot of goals in this one, and I have little doubt that they will all be coming from the Man City players. This is the sort of game where the Champions can be ruthless and where Burnley have struggled the past. I expect Man City to pass the -3 handicap.

If I had to predict a scoreline for this one, I’d go 4-0 Man City. They have won all six of their previous home games against Burnley to nil, scoring four or more goals in five. I can see something similar happening again.

    Julian Alvarez to Score Anytime

    In a game where I expect Man City to score a lot of goals, I imagine Julian Alvarez will be involved. He has put in some solid performances in the absence of Erling Haaland and will have plenty of opportunities to fire at Burnley’s goal. I can see him bagging a goal here.

    Phil Foden to Score Anytime

    Phil Foden was on target twice against Huddersfield in the FA Cup earlier this month, and I expect him to be similarly dominant in this one. It is the type of game where Man City will get a lot of chances, and when that happens, Phil Foden is usually right in the thick of it. So, I imagine Foden will be on the scoresheet in this one.

      Kevin De Bruyne to Have 1 or More Shots on Target

      Even though Pep Guardiola is easing him back into the side, I expect Kevin De Bruyne to have an impact on this game. He will see a lot of the ball, no matter how reduced his time on the pitch may be, and for the Belgian, that means chances. So, I expect De Bruyne to have at least a shot on target.
