Burnley 1-1 Man City: Clarets snatch late point

Being in the Carabao Cup final and still in the FA Cup and Champions League means they could realistically still win the quadruple and they've only lost two games this season, against Liverpool and Shakhtar Donetsk.

Danilo had put City ahead in the 22nd minute, but the city was jolted to reality in the 82nd minute when Johann Berg Gudmundsson latched on a cross by Mathew Lowton to even scores for the hosts.

The biggest and easiest chance of the game was missed by City's striker Raheem Sterling, who in the 70 minute failed to find the target from six yards out after meeting Kyle Walker's cross at the far post.

RAHEEM STERLING is having the most prolific season of his career at Manchester City, with many of his goals deciding the outcome of matches.

City manager Pep Guardiola, without the injured David Silva, Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus, named only six substitutes including club record signing Aymeric Laporte, signed for a club record 57 million pounds last week.


The Manchester City boss goes with Ederson in goal, while in defence he selects Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi as the central pairing, with Fernandinho protecting the back four.

We don't have any more players, that is thee reason why. 'We could take one from second team but they played a game yesterday.

"We missed the last moment to try to score the second one and after, of course playing in the Premier League, especially away in the last 10 minutes with 1-0, anything can happen".

"We didn't have any more players", Guardiola said.

"I don't know why he's peddling that story that, "oh, I've got no players". He's an absolutely incredible manager, the work that he has done with this team is unbelievable, and the team performance is absolutely outstanding, it really is. "We started putting quality into their box, and in the end, it was a fantastic ball and a fantastic goal", said Dyche.
