Manchester City welcome Burnley to the Etihad on Monday night as they look to delay Liverpool ’s title celebrations just a little longer.
Reigning champions City returned the action last week when they played their game in hand against Arsenal.
Pep Guardiola’s side ran out 3-0 winners, and now entertain a Burnley side who went into the weekend sitting firmly in mid-table.
Wednesday’s win over Arsenal put reigning champions City 22 points behind Liverpool with nine games left to play.
Jurgen Klopp’s men need a maximum of two wins from their remaining Premier League games to end City’s two-year stint as champions.
What time is Man City vs Burnley?
Manchester City vs Burnley kicks off at 8pm on Monday.
It’s the tenth and final game from matchday 29, which began on Friday evening when Southampton went to relegation-threatened Norwich.
Although the match at the Eithad is the only one on Monday, the games continue to come thick and fast, with Premier League football continuing throughout the week.
Man City vs Burnley TV channel and live stream
Sky Sports is showing Monday’s match, with coverage starting at 7.30pm.
Like other games on Sky, fake crowd noise will be available on Sky Sports Main Event while Sky Sports Premier League has just the ambient stadium sounds.
This match is also being made free-to-air by Sky, meaning it will once again be available to watch on Pick.
Anyone who wants to stream the game can do so if they have Sky Sports and the Sky Go app.
City’s teenager defender Eric Garcia is out, having been knocked to the ground in a nasty-looking collision with goalkeeper Ederson in Wednesday’s 3-0 in over Arsenal.
The 19-year-old Spaniard was stretchered off wearing a neck brace, but has since posted a positive update.
Want-away midfielder Leroy Sane was an unused substitute last week, and Guardiola hasn’t confirmed whether he’ll figure against the Clarets.
Burnley will be without strikers Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes, as well as winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson.
Top scorer Wood picked up an Achilles injury in training, while Barnes is not yet fully fit after a hernia operation. Icelandic international Johann Berg Gudmundsson has a calf injury.
Man City 2/13
Pep Guardiola will make several changes to his team, and Burnley usually give City a tougher examination than most.
But they find it tougher to do that away from Turf Moor and Guardiola’s side have the quality to win by a couple of goals even if they are frustrated for chunks of the game.
