Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Manchester City will be looking to build on a very important 2-0 win in the Manchester derby when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Matchday 36. The Citizens proved their worth in the victory over Man Utd, but coach Pep Guardiola must warn his men against complacency. The league leaders need to take Sunday’s football game very seriously as Liverpool are breathing down their neck.
A man to watch in the away team will be Kun Aguero, who has netted 19 goals in the Premier League so far this term. Burnley, on the other hand, did well to hold Chelsea to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Monday evening, with the team extending their unbeaten run in the national championship to four games. However, the Clarets face an uphill task in the clash against the star-studded Citizens, therefore, we are tempted to put our money on Pep Guardiola’s troops, who look unstoppable at the moment.

Highlighted Team (Man City):
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight.
Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), but both managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097.
Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
