Monday night’s Premier League game sees Burnley travel to Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s side have already picked up a win thanks to a 3-0 victory over Arsenal and they’ll be eager to build fitness and consistency in the weeks ahead, not so much for their league campaign but to ensure they are in the right shape for the resumption of the Champions League.

Second place looks essentially sealed for City, so it’s all about preparing for Europe and planning for next season when it comes to game time and team selections.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

For Burnley, a top-half finish is the aspiration and they were in great form before the postponement of football earlier in the year.

City lost centre-back Eric Garcia to injury after a collision with Ederson against Arsenal and the defender is definitely out. Guardiola may opt to rotate his side after the likes of Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero started on the bench against the Gunners.

Man City: Ederson; Walker, Fernandinho, Laporte, Mendy; Rodri, de Bruyne, D Silva; B Silva, Aguero, Sterling.

Burnley: Pope; Lowton, Mee, Tarkowski, Taylor; Hendrick, Cork, Westwood, McNeil; Rodriguez, Vydra.
