Who was Man Of The Match? Bernardo Silva
20 goals had been scored in the previous 5 meetings between Manchester City and Burnley with Burnley only scoring 1 goal of those 20. That stat now stands at 22 goals in 6 games, as Manchester City scored 2 goals past Sean Dyche’s men while Burnley’s draught continues.
Bernardo Silva opened the proceedings in front of goal for City, who met Nick Pope‘s rebound after the Burnley goalkeeper saved off Phil Foden. Silva scored the goal in the 12th minute, giving City an early foothold in the game.
Kevin De Bruyne scored the 2nd goal of the game in the 72nd minute, after his pass to Riyad Mahrez was blocked by Ashley Westwood, and came back to him, which he drilled past Nick Pope.
Burnley did have a couple of chances, and threatened the City goal a couple of times, but City were able to manage comfortably.
Burnley are winless in the last 10 league games (D3 L7), and find themselves in 19th position.
