Burnley FC press room

Burnley and Manchester City go head-to-head this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 14th March 2015 at 17:30. Venue: Turf Moor, Burnley

Odds: Burnley 11/2, Draw 7/2, Man City 4/9

Burnley take on reigning Premier League champions Manchester City at Turf Moor on Saturday with the two sides desperate for points for very different reasons.

Burnley are currently 19th in the league, three points clear of safety with matches running out, while City are second, five points behind current leaders Chelsea and keen to take advantage of any slip-up from Jose Mourinho’s men.

Sean Dyche’s side may be near the foot of the table but they have proved to be worthy adversaries for many top flight clubs this season and this will not be an easy match for City.

In early team news, Burnley duo Kevin Long and Dean Marney both remain side-lined with knee injuries and Matt Taylor is a long-term absentee.

Danny Ings is a minor doubt with a knock but Dyche will be desperate to have his top-scorer available if at all possible.

As for City, they have no issues heading into this match and it is up to manager Manuel Pellegrini to pick a side that can battle their way to what is sure to be a hard-earned three points.
