Bet of the Day: Man City to edge past Burnley at the Etihad

Citizens will find it tougher against the Clarets

Manchester City host Burnley on Saturday afternoon in what could be a tricky fixture for Pep Guardiola’s side.

The Sky Blues have been in imperious form at home of late. They’ve won five in a row at the Etihad Stadium and scored 21 goals in the process.

While the Coral News Team are not expecting a shock Burnley victory, it’s fair to suggest that the Clarets will make it difficult for their hosts. Sean Dyche’s charges are unbeaten on the road this season and have conceded just two goals in their last five Premier League games.

Man City can call upon the attacking prowess of Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne. But it won’t be easy to breakdown Burnley’s well-drilled rearguard.

For that reason, the Coral Bet of the Day is Manchester City to Win and Under 3.5 Goals at 31/20.

Sterling to convert once more

Raheem Sterling’s quality has never been in doubt. But so far this season the England ace has really shown that he means business.

The ex-Liverpool man has bagged five goals in the Premier League since August, including three in City’s last four home games.

He’s 11/10 to find the net anytime again on Saturday.

City to run like clockwork

Pep Guardiola’s men have an intriguing knack of scoring midway through the first-half. In four of their eight Premier League games so far this season, City have netted first during the 21-30 minute window.

You can back the Sky Blues at 17/4 to break the Burnley rearguard during the same period this afternoon.
