Manchester City have taken care of Champions League business after booking their place in the last sixteen on Wednesday night thanks to a 1-1 draw in Germany.

Pep Guardiola will care little about the final group game against Celtic, with the Spaniard now set on steering the Citizens back to the top of the table and it’s easy to predict an away win on Saturday lunchtime.

Burnley will regard this match as a free shot against one of the better teams in the division, with Sean Dyche hoping his team can defend a lot more stoutly than was the case at The Hawthorns on Monday.

The Clarets were behind quickly against West Brom and ended up being on the thick end of a 4-0 scoreline, with Manchester City likely to show no mercy.

Yaya Toure isn’t in the City Champions League squad although the Ivorian came in from the cold at Selhurst Park to score twice and he’s just the sort of player you need in the middle of the park for this sort of game.

Toure looks rejuvenated since his apology to Pep and there are attacking threats all over the park when it comes to Manchester City.

Burnley’s home form has been strong and they did beat Liverpool 2-0, Everton 2-1 and Crystal Palace more recently by a 3-2 scoreline.

City should get their noses in front early, with Guardiola’s men looking for a fast start and it should be borne in mind that Burnley have massively ridden their luck in some games this term.
