Manchester City team news & predicted line-up vs Burnley

In this piece, we take a look at the latest Manchester City team news ahead of their upcoming Premier League clash with Burnley.

Manchester City head into Friday night’s game looking to kick off their defence of their Premier League crown with a win.

Standing in their way is a Burnley side who dominated the Championship last season under the guidance of former Manchester captain, Vincent Kompany.

Man City are the clear favourites for the game, but as the match is at Turf Moor, there remains an outside chance Kompany could cause an upset for his former boss.

Nathan Ake is Manchester City’s only injury concern ahead of the game. The defender missed the Community Shield last week with an unspecified injury and has a 25 per cent chance of playing on Friday.

Speaking about Ake on July 26, Pep Guardiola said: “He felt tired, and with his history, it is better not to take a risk. The group is good [with] no injuries. I wouldn’t say we are far away, but we are away from our best conditions to be in top, top form. But that is normal.”
