The Lancashire side need someone to start firing in the goals having failed to bag in their last three and just two in their last five. Riyad Mahrez has three in his last three while Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden have two in five.

Burnley vs Man City: Match Stats

Josh Brownhill plays in the heart of the Clarets midfield and is sure to have a busy time of it here. He has booked eight times this campaign and in four of his last nine and looks value to be carded at anytime.
