Burnley 1 Manchester City 4

The Clarets suffered successive home defeats for the first time in the Premier League this season as Manchester City showed the stuff of champions to cruise to victory at Turf Moor.

 City may be struggling to retain their crown after an indifferent start to the season by their own high standards.

 But three goals of the highest quality – including two from Gabriel Jesus as he ended an eight-game drought – underlined their enduring class as they rarely gave Sean Dyche’s men a sniff before a late exchange of goals at least saw the Clarets finish on a high.

 Riyad Mahrez added City’s fourth goal three minutes from the end, leaving just enough time for Burnley substitute Robbie Brady to claim his first club goal in two injury-hit years to hopefully signal a change of luck for the wingman.

 With the Clarets feeling the pinch in the treatment room and on the back of Saturday’s loss to Crystal Palace, Dyche made three changes to face up to a City side knowing they have virtually no margin for error if they are to catch run-away league leaders Liverpool.

 Pep Guardiola’s side kicked off 11 points in arrears of the Reds but were not presented with the twin striking challenge they might have expected as Ashley Barnes made way with a slight knock to also prompt a tweak to the Clarets’ formation.

 Jeff Hendrick returned to the position just behind lone frontman Chris Wood with Danny Drinkwater plugging the midfield gap left by the continued absence of Ashley Westwood.

Well that was totally expected, Citeh were far too good for us.
Unfortunately a few of ours were not up to scratch tonight, far too weak in their marking in particular giving Bernardo Silva far too much space. Poor passing also played a big part in our downfall, but hey ho only Spurs up next, onwards and upwards.

Spurs are no city, they leak goals.
