Manchester City vs Burnley Premier League Live Football Score 3 Feb 2021
Manchester City are looking to become the first Premier League side since Arsenal in 2002 to win 13 successive games in all competitions when they make the trip to Burnley.The Citizens have been on an extraordinary run of form over the past couple of months and lead the way at the top of the Premier League.Opponents Burnley recently beat Liverpool at Anfield, but defeat to Chelsea last time out leaves them just two places above the relegation zone.City made tough work of seeing off bottom side Sheffield United at the weekend, with Gabriel Jesus’s early goal proving enough in a 1-0 victory at the Etihad Stadium.
That victory was the Citizens’ eighth in a row in the top flight and, with Manchester United being held by Arsenal, they are three points clear at the top with a game in hand.Stopping Pep Guardiola’s men when they are in this form is arguably the most difficult task in football, but Burnley certainly know how to pull off a shock result.It was less than two weeks ago that Sean Dyche’s charges went to Anfield and picked up a 1-0 victory, ending Liverpool’s 68-game unbeaten home league run.The Clarets followed that up with a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa, though a 2-0 loss to Chelsea on Sunday means that they are still in the lower reaches of the division.
- Burnley have won only one of the past 26 encounters in all competitions, drawing six and losing 19.
- Manchester City are on a seven-game winning run in this fixture, scoring 28 goals and conceding one.
