Man City’s hottest shot enhanced to fire title chasers in front
No team in the Premier League has prevented Manchester City from finding the target on their travels this season, while the last time the champions travelled to Turf Moor they hit Burnley for six.
That 6-1 pounding may have come during Burnley’s last spell in the top-flight back in 2009/10, but it is an ominous task facing the Clarets against the best away side in the division.
City’s 2-1 defeat to Liverpool was only their second on the road all season and coming off a refreshing 10-day break the champs know nothing other than three points will do here to keep a semblance of pressure in Chelsea.
With Sergio Aguero fighting fit, scoring goals shouldn’t be too much of a problem for Manuel Pellegrin’s men who will look to build on victory over Leicester last time out.
Aguero has notched braces in each of this last three away games against sides currently outside the top seven in the league.
It’s absolutely brilliant news for Labdrokes customers therefore that the firm are boosting the Argentine’s odds from 11/4, out to 7/2 to break the deadlock from 8.00am on match day.
City’s top scorer has bagged 23 goals in 31 appearances this season, so it’s no surprise that he regularly rewards backers of this bet.
It certainly helps no end that the former Atletico Madrid man is the designated penalty taker too, as in two of the last three games he’s found the net in; a spot kick has set the scoreboard into motion.
Meanwhile, relegation-threatened Burnley have picked up just two of the last 21 available points and only QPR have conceded more goals at home than the Sean Dyche’s side this season.
