Manchester City square off against Burnley at the Etihad Stadium on Monday night, having beaten Arsenal in their fixture on Wednesday.
Pep Guardiola’s side are looking to continue their impressive form despite the league title being almost over for them. The match could possibly also serve as their last as champions with Liverpool bound to lift the trophy.
Burnley’s target for the remainder of the season would be to finish as high as they can in the top-flight with eight goals to go after Monday’s clash.
Sean Dyche’s side should be safe from the drop zone if they are able to add one more point to the current 39 they have after 29 games.
The Citizens won the reverse fixture over the Clarets at Turf Moor in December by four goals to one.
