Burnley vs Manchester City: Liverpool fan Sean Dyche can continue the Clarets’ stunning record of beating reigning Premier League champions every season


Burnley vs Manchester City: Liverpool fan Sean Dyche can continue the Clarets’ stunning record of beating reigning Premier League champions every season

Following Manchester United’s failure to do Liverpool a favour by taking points off Manchester City, Burnley are now the Reds’ next hope.

City tightened their grip on the Premier League title race with a 2-0 victory at Old Trafford on Wednesday, putting them one point ahead of the Reds with both sides having three games left this season.

City cleared a massive hurdle in their pursuit for the title

The reigning champions have the edge but will go into their remaining games knowing that Liverpool will be ready to pounce on any slip-ups they make.

By the time City play next on Sunday, it’s likely that they’ll be second again as Liverpool play already relegated Huddersfield at Anfield on Friday night.

The Citizens have a much tougher game as they face Burnley at Turf Moor.

Burnley were actually one of the few teams to take points off City last season with a 1-1 draw at home to Pep Guardiola’s men in February 2018, although City still won the title at a canter.
