Manchester City seeks to deepen Burnley’s wounds in the English Premier League today
The Manchester City team aims to deepen the wounds of its counterpart Burnley, when they meet at four in the afternoon, Saturday, at the “Etihad” stadium.
As part of the eighth round of the English Premier League competitions for the current season 2021/2022.
Manchester City enters the match with a desire to achieve a new victory that will bring it closer to the top of the English Premier League table.
After the team returned to the strong performance in the competition during the past rounds, most notably the exciting draw it achieved against Liverpool in the confrontation that ended 2/2 at Anfield, the stronghold of the Reds.
Manchester City is in third place in the English Premier League standings with 14 points collected from winning 4 matches, drawing 2 and losing one match, scoring 14 goals and receiving only 3.
The English Premier League champion hopes last season to continue searching for the hope of preserving the Premier League title, in light of a fierce struggle with a number of clubs, most notably Chelsea and Liverpool, respectively.
While the Burnley team seeks to get out with the least losses from the match after the series of negative results it has achieved in the competition so far, especially since it has not achieved any victory so far in the English Premier League.
The Burnley team is in the eighteenth place in the English Premier League table with 3 points, collected from 3 draws and received 4 losses, while scoring only 5 goals and receiving 11 so far, until it became one of the strong candidates to leave the competition at the end of the season.
The Spaniard Ferran Torres was injured while participating with the Spanish national team in the European Nations League competitions, in which the French team was crowned.
And Manchester City announced on its official website that Ferran Torres had suffered a minor fracture of the foot, and he will be subject again to tests within the club, to determine the length of his absence from the stadiums.
It is scheduled that Manchester City will compete with the expected formation against Burnley as follows..
Defense Line: Kyle Walker – Robin Diaz – Aymeric Laporte – Joao Cancelo.
Midfield: Bernardo Silva – Rodrigo Hernandez – Kevin De Bruyne.
Forwards: Jack Grealish – Jesus – Raheem Sterling.
