Burnley 1-1 Man City

Burnley 1-1 Man City

The 1-1 scoreline does not tell the full picture of a game City dominated but when you let as many chances go begging as Pep Guardiola's side did, you are asking for trouble.

City took the lead in the first half via a stunner from Danilo, but Johann Berg Gudmundsson's late equalizer grabbed a point for Burnley.

The Burnley backline could do nothing to stop Danilo's long-distance rocket midway through the first half, but City's failure to add to its tally left the game on a knife edge, with Raheem Sterling guilty of two shocking close-range misses.

City are 16 points clear at the top before second-placed Manchester United host Huddersfield later on Saturday.

Sterling missed a glorious chance to seal the win for the Manchester Cuity but missed from six yards.

With John Stones and David Silva this week joining Fabian Delph, Benjamin Mendy, Phil Foden, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane on the sidelines, City were short on numbers.

City showcased their quality in the 39th minute with a flowing move from the back, ending with a powerful drive from Kevin De Bruyne which keeper Nick Pope did well to keep out. "Next day he is going to score a goal".

Man City boss Guardiola, expressed disappointment after the match, saying that even though his side's performance was outstanding, they missed a lot of chances at goal.

"We missed the last moment to try to score the second one and after, of course playing in the Premier League, especially away in the last 10 minutes with 1-0, anything can happen".

Another talking point was Guardiola's decision to name only six substitutes, a decision which Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville called "a joke" ahead of kick-off.

"We didn't have any more players", Guardiola said.

"If you're a youth team manager at Manchester City, ring him up and ask which kid deserves that boost". I thought we handled every game against Burnley so far well. Sterling somehow put the ball wide just one metre out from the empty goal.
