Manchester City meet Burnley at the Etihad Stadium today as they looks to get their scoring form back on track.

City made it through to the Champions League knockout stages in midweek, and now Pep Guardiola knows that his side must put a run of wins together in the Premier League in order to begin challenging for the title.

They come up against a Burnley side whom have typically struggled at the Etihad and shipped plenty of goals there in recent seasons.

Burnley are buoyed at least by their first win of the campaign, beating Crystal Palace last time out at Turf Moor.

City are currently 13th in the table, eight points off the top with a game in hand over most of those above them.

Burnley are 17th, one place above the relegation zone after that much-needed victory over Palace.

Here is everything you need to know.
