Manchester City suffered a humbling defeat at the weekend at the hands of Leicester City in the Premier League. Guardiola conceded five goals for the first time as a manager as Jamie Vardy ran rampant. City edged out Bournemouth on home soil in their last EFL Cup contest to advance to the fourth round. Their defensive lapses will give the Spaniard cause for concern against Burnley tonight.
Burnley have endured a disappointing start to the season in the Premier League, losing both of their opening matches, including their last outing against Southampton. However, they have been successful in the EFL Cup thus far, defeating Sheffield United on penalties and Millwall to advance. Tests do not come tougher than facing City and the Clarets will have to be flawless against Pep Guardiola’s men.
