Below is a summary of the full article. Click here for the full version or go back to NUFC Live

Manchester City face Burnley at Turf Moor on Tuesday night (8.15pm), with the champions looking to bounce back from their disappointment at St James’ Park on Saturday. Pep Guardiola will be desperate for three points, but Sean Dyche’s side have won two of their last three matches, and will prove to be tough opposition.

City narrowly escaped Turf Moor with a win last season, thanks to a Sergio Aguero finish that needed goal-line technology to confirm the goal.

The champions were forced to wait until the 63rd minute to take the lead, in a must-win match toward the end of last season.

Despite the scoreline, Burnley failed to have a single shot on target, and were pegged back to just 30 per cent possession.

Meanwhile, City bombarded the Burnley goal with 25 shots, and seven on target.

The Citizens will be without a number of key players for their clash against the Clarets.

Aguero is still a few weeks away from returning to action, while Oleksandr Zinchenko could make the matchday squad.

The Ukrainian left-back has returned to full training after six weeks out, but the match against Burnley is likely too soon for a starting XI spot.

Elsewhere, Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane are still long-term absences for Guardiola. Both are expected to be out until the start of February.

City are likely to line up with Ederson in goal, after his return from injury.

Kyle Walker started against Newcastle on Saturday, meaning Joao Cancelo may get the nod at Turf Moor.

John Stones and Fernandinho are likely to continue their budding partnership, in the absence of Laporte.

Meanwhile, while Zinchenko could feature on the bench for City, Guardiola is likely to choose Benjamin Mendy ahead of Angelino, owing to the latter’s short stature against the tall forwards of Burnley.
