5-0, 5-0, 5-0 is the margin of victory for Manchester City over Burnley in the past three corresponding fixtures, so Sean Dyche’s side may be a touch wary when kicking off at the Etihad Stadium. One thing Dyche’s players never lack is courage, though, and thus while even a draw for the visitors would seem unlikely, they are sure to try to make this a difficult afternoon for the champions.
