Manchester City will be playing their 21st Premier League game of the season when they take on Burnley at the Etihad. Manchester City’s last game against Burnley was in the first game of the season when Man City traveled to Turf Moor to win 0-3. The game brings bad memories for Kevin De Bruyne since he was injured in that game, which took him out until a few weeks ago.

Manchester City has been on fire recently and has not lost a game since early December. Man City is on a 7 game-winning streak in all competitions and looks to continue that streak today. City are currently third in the Premier League table with 43 points, but they do have a game in hand against Brentford that they need to play soon. Man City is five points behind Liverpool, who are at the top of the table in the Premier League. Fans are looking forward to seeing Erling Haaland, who is now available and fit to play for Man City in today's Premier League game.

Burnley has looked the complete opposite to Man City. Former Man City captain Vincent Kompany has not had a good season so far, as they are 19th in the Premier League table. The newly promoted side has 12 points and needs 8 points to get out of the relegation zone. Burnley only have three wins and three draws while losing 15 games. Tottenham recently eliminated them from the FA Cup when they lost 1-0 away from home. Their last game in the Premier League was a 1-1 draw to Luton Town at home.
