PREVIEW Burnley v Man City

first_img[dropcap]A[/dropcap]fter four days of Cheltenham excess – not to mention a small loss – it’s back to business in the Premier League for today’s recommendation.With Chelsea playing on Sunday against Southampton, there’s a chance for Man City to put a modicum of pressure on the league leaders if they can beat Burnley in the tea-time kick off.A win would put Man City within two points of the lead – but crucially Chelsea will have two games in hand.So, in other words, nothing other than a win will keep City’s hopes alive in a season where their main problem has been in defence. They have now conceded in eight of their last 10 league games and also conceded two against Burnley in the reverse fixture at the Etihad in which Burnley emerged with a well earned point.Burnley are right in the thick of the relegation battle and would surely welcome another point against City, especially as Manuel Pellegrini has the luxury of a fully fit squad to choose from.Burnley v Man CityPremier League5.30pm LIVE ON SKYHEAD TO HEAD(Maximum 10 matches)Dec 2014 Premier Man City 2-2 BurnleyApr 2010 Premier League Burnley 1-6 Man CityNov 2009 Premier League Man City 3-3 BurnleyDec 2001 League Div 1 Man City 5-1 BurnleyAug 2001 League Div 1 Burnley 2-4 Man CityAug 1999 League Cup Burnley 0-1 Man CityAug 1999 League Cup Man City 5-0 BurnleyMar 1999 League Div 2 Burnley 0-6 Man CityOct 1988 League Div 2 Man City 2-2 BurnleyJan 1991 FA Cup Burnley 0-1 Man CityI’m looking at a ‘steadier’ after Cheltenham so ‘over 2.5 goals’ at around 4/6 with Star Sports will hopefully do the job nicely – to a 12 point stake.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)BACK OVER 2.5 GOALS for 12 points at around 4/6 with Star SportsRETURN SINCE START OF WORLD CUP: PROFIT 105.92 POINTSWhat’s your view?
