Our tipster is backing the league leaders to get amongst the goals again when they travel to take on Sean Dyche's side at Turf Moor on Saturday

Manchester City can continue their march towards the Premier League title by beating Burnley at Turf Moor.

Pep Guardiola's side have a 15 point lead at the top with 13 matches remaining and will hope to take another significant stride towards being crowned as champions here.

Latest odds

Given City's remarkable domestic dominance this season, it seems incredible that they have collected just one point from their last two Premier League matches on the road.

Guardiola's charges are 1/4 (1.25) favourites with SportPesa to come out on top in this one, while Burnley can be backed at 10/1 (11.0) with the same firm to pick up their first home win since mid-December.

SportPesa go 9/2 (5.50) that both sides are forced to settle for a share of the spoils on Saturday afternoon.

Team news

Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane are long-term absentees for the hosts, although the former is approaching a return to fitness.

Aaron Lennon could make his home debut for the Clarets.

Both teams to score?

Remarkably, there have been goals at both ends in just two of Burnley's 12 Premier League matches on their own patch this season and SportPesa offer 23/20 (2.15) that both teams are on target here.

This selection would have landed when the two teams met in Manchester for their FA Cup third round tie last month when City claimed a 4-1 win.

City dominance to continue?

The Citizens have been beaten in just one of their last 18 matches against the Clarets and have scored seven goals in their two games against Sean Dyche's side so far this season.

They have also conceded just once and SportPesa offer 10/13 (1.77) that City win by two or more goals here.

Tips and predictions

The long-term loss of Sane is undoubtedly a blow for City but they could well prove to be too strong for the Clarets once again here.

Therefore, the 11/10 (2.20) quote from SportPesa for the visitors to score three or more goals in this game could well provide punters with a path to profit.
