Burnley vs Manchester City match summary

Pep Guardiola opted not to rest his stars for the midweek clash as keeping pace with league-leaders Liverpool has become a must for Manchester City. Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring in the 24th minute after David Silva fed him with a good through ball. The Brazilian doubled City's advantage five minutes after the break when he pounced on some poor defending by the Burnley defenders to score from close range. There was no getting back for Burnley after a spectacular goal from Rodri and a low shot from substitute Riyad Mahrez made it 4 for the visitors. A late consolation from Burnley substitute Robert Brady denied City a clean sheet, who have now gone 8 games without a clean sheet in all competitions.

The victory brings Manchester City side within 8 points of leaders Liverpool ahead of the Merseyside derby with Everton at Anfield on Wednesday night. City will host Manchester United next on Saturday while Burnley, who lie 11th, will have an away fixture against Tottenham Hotspur.
