Man City-Burnley: Aguero pen gives City the edge
21/10/2017, 15:00
Welcome to our live coverage of Man City-Burnely. This is what you need to know ahead of the kick-off.
Despite losing only one of their six Premier League meetings with Burnley (W3 D2 L1), the Citizens have failed to keep a clean sheet against the Clarets.
 
Indeed, no side has faced Burnley more in the competition without keeping a clean sheet against them (Hull City also six).
 
However, the Citizens have averaged 3.2 goals-per-game across their last 10 league meetings with Burnley, including hitting them for six on two occasions (6-0 March 1999, 6-1 April 2010).
 
This is Burnley’s best ever start to a Premier League campaign after eight games (13 points), and their highest return at this stage of a top-flight season since 1973-74 (15 points, adjusted 3pts/win).
 
Manchester City have won their last three home league games all by a five-goal margin, with only two teams in the history of English league football winning four in a row by five or more goals – Aston Villa in September 1899 and Everton in November 1931.
 
Man City have scored 5+ goals in six league games in 2017 – only Chelsea (7) in 2010 have netted 5+ goals in more Premier League games in a calendar year.
 
Man City are the first English top-flight team to score 29 goals in their first eight league games of the season since Everton in 1894-95 (30). The record for most goals scored after nine top-flight games is jointly held by Sunderland in 1892-93 and Blackburn in 1889-90 (40 goals).
