Burnley host Man City on Sunday at Turf Moor (Watch live, 9:05 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) with Pep Guardiola‘s side needing to win to go back to the top of the Premier League table.
A trip to Turf Moor is never easy, and Sean Dyche‘s men have been in fine form in the second half of the season with their draw at Chelsea last time out underlining that. Liverpool fans everywhere will be hoping Burnley can do them a favor in their own quest to win the PL title…
As for Man City, they’ve won 11-straight games and the reigning champs know four more wins (their final three PL games and in the FA Cup final) will secure the domestic treble. Despite being knocked out of the Champions League, City have shown little signs of slowing down in recent games and they know any slip will see Liverpool become the favorites to win the title with two games to go.
City have beat Burnley 5-0 in the league and FA Cup this season, but both of those games were at the Etihad Stadium.
Heading to Turf Moor is, as we’ve already said, a very different proposition.
This is a true test of City’s title credentials.
