Manchester City
Burnley

While both of these teams have enjoyed a comeback of sorts as of late, there’s still little doubt that this represents one of the biggest mismatches in a tournament that is known to be full of them – at least in terms of the betting odds. However, with City having already suffered shocks from less celebrated teams in recent times, will lightning strike once more against the wounded giants?

Manchester City vs Burnley Betting Tips: Form Guide

Manchester City Find Their Feet Once More  

When City fell to Chelsea 2-0 back towards the start of December, it felt like seeing an immortal crash back down to earth. And afterwards, they once again made their vulnerabilities known in crushing defeats to both Crystal Palace and Leicester, in games which went 3-2 and 2-1 against them.

For most teams, these losses would be mere disappointments. After all, they were losses against two fine teams playing at their absolute best – and no one after that astonishing 30-yard volley by Palace’s Andros Townsend could resent them that victory.  For City though – a team who had dominated the Premier League last season like no other –, the fear was palpable.

But what do great teams do when they’re down? They get back up. And that’s precisely what City did: first with a 3-1 comeback against Southampton and, most importantly, in a thrilling 2-1 outing against league rivals Chelsea. In their matches outside the league, they looked unstoppable once more. They battered Rotherham 7-0 to get to this stage of the FA Cup, and made mincemeat out of Burton in a 9-0 mauling. Back-to-back 3-0 wins against Wolves and Huddersfield cemented their comeback.

Even if City were not to have improved since their losses in December, they would still be firm favourites in the eyes of the Manchester City vs Burnley match previews, and as things stand now, it is hard to see them losing here.

Burnley Manage To Mount A Comeback Of Their Own

Back in December, things had been hard going for Burnley, with only a single 1-0 win over Brighton to keep their spirits up after over three month of otherwise fruitless outings. However, a return to the 4-4-2 formula which brought them so much success last season saw them defeat West Ham in a solid 2-0 result.

Another win – this time in a 2-1 match against a desperate Huddersfield – once again suggested they were turning a corner, as did the 1-0 FA Cup win over Barnsley. Not only that, but two own goals which led to their 2-1 victory over Fulham made it feel like fate was on their side. Even manager Sean Dyche had to admit they’d gotten rather lucky.

A 0-0 stalemate against Watford may have taken a little of the wind of their sails, but goalkeeper Tom Heaton did provide a spellbinding performance. Ultimately though, the Manchester City vs Burnley betting tips were going to require a lot of convincing to view Burnley as anything other than major underdogs. And they do, but Burnley still have a lot to be proud of and have shown they have plenty more left in the tank.

Manchester City vs Burnley Preview: Recent Meetings

When you first hear that Burnley beat Manchester City in 2015, your immediate reaction is likely surprise and, if you’re a Burnley fan, relief. However, that changes fairly swiftly when you realise that gap actually represents six games since then and now. Also, by far the most relevant statistic to Manchester City vs Burnley betting tips for today is that the last fixture between these two ended with a definitive 5-0 in the favour of City.

Not only that but the last victory for Burnley before that 1-0 win from 2015 was way back in 1974, when they toppled their opponents 2-1 in League Division 1. Actually, the most hope for Burnley comes in the form of a 1-1 draw at the start of last year. This is proof that, even when Manchester City was in the midst of a killer season, victory over Burnley wasn’t a sure thing. If they managed to hold off the league jagguernauts to a stalemate then, surely they have a shot here as well.

Manchester City vs Burnley Prediction: Man City Victory

If Manchester City had continued to follow the downhill spiral they hinted at during the worst moments of December, then you would be able to make a solid case for a Burnley victory here. The underdogs have certainly been on an upswing as of late, and their defence has improved dramatically. Even their recent draw saw them showing off just how great their goalkeeper was.

However, that isn’t what has happened. City have proven why they are one of the best in the world by regrouping and bouncing back with absolute ferocity. As many improvements as Burnley have made and as strong as their defence has looked, there are few teams capable of beating a Manchester City team that is firing on all cylinders. And, considering they haven’t slowed down in recent games out of the league – just look at what they did to Rotherham –, we don’t think we’ll see them backing down here.

It’s because of City’s strength, rather than Burnley’s weakness, that we have to say that our Manchester City vs Burnley prediction is for City to emerge victorious.
