IndiaFantasy Prediction:

Manchester City is 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League, in the knockout phase of the Champions League and the semi-finals of the League Cup. They will now look to beat Burnley in the FA Cup third round to ensure they are still fighting on four fronts this season. Burnley are winless in five matches but have faced Tottenham, Manchester United and Liverpool in that time. The Clarets are otherwise enjoying a superb season and will look to become the first English side to beat City this season when they make the short trip to the Etihad on Saturday. However, the signs do not look good for the away side. Burnley hasn’t won away at City in 55 years, while Pep Guardiola’s side hasn’t lost at home in over a year.
