MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
Nearly a week into the Premier League's new normal and Burnley tonight become the final side to sample the delights of behind closed doors games.
Pep Guardiola's City can narrow the gap at the top to 20 (yes, twenty) points tonight with victory, as they look to at least keep the title 'race' going for a couple more weeks.
Champions League qualification is crucial though and City will not want to miss out on that should they win their upcoming appeal against a European ban.
Burnley were on a terrific run before lockdown struck, with Sean Dyche's men picking up four wins from their last seven top-flight games.
That sequence helped pulled them clear of the relegation zone and an unlikely victory tonight could even spell a late push for the European places. Seriously, it's that tight in mid-table.
Recent history isn't exactly on their side though – in their last five visits to the Etihad, the Clarets have lost 19-2 on aggregate. Ouch.
That includes 5-0 trouncings on their last two visits, while City put four past Dyche's side when they met at Turf Moor in December.
Goals on the menu, then. Cue 0-0.
Kick-off at the Etihad is at 8pm, team news imminent…
