Burnley will be hoping to derail Manchester City’s Premier League title plans as they host the reigning champions on Sunday afternoon.

The Citizens returned to the top of the league table on Wednesday night after they beat Manchester United 2-0 and you can head over to Betfred to back City to win the title.

Liverpool may leapfrog the champions again with a win on Friday at home to Huddersfield, but City boss Pep Guardiola is only concentrating on the Clarets.

The Spaniard has refused to overlook the Clarets and Sean Dyche believes his team have every chance of causing an upset.

The former Watford coach has praised his team for the way they have avoided relegation, with Monday’s draw against Chelsea meaning they can look forward to more top flight football next season.

Phil Bardsley is a doubt after missing the past few matches due to a leg injury, while Peter Crouch is also touch and go with an abdominal injury.

Steven Defour and Aaron Lennon are long-term absentees for the home side.

Guardiola is unsure if he will be able to call upon Fernandinho for Sunday’s trip, but confirmed that Kevin De Bruyne was out of the game.

Benjamin Mendy is also a doubt after missing out against Manchester United, while Fabian Delph will not travel.

Burnley are winless in their last seven meetings with Man City in all competitions (D1 L6) and they have lost the last two meetings 5-0.
