On Friday, August 11, 2023 Burnley will compete against Manchester City in the Matchday 1 of the Premier League match. Watch here, Burnley vs Manchester City live streaming, preview and how to watch it.
Burnley and Man City will face each other in the Premier League 2023/24 opener, which will take place on Friday 11/8/2023 at Turf Moor. This is an interesting match between a newly promoted team and a team that just won 3 Cups last season. Who will start the new season with a win?
Burnley is a team that has just returned to the Premier League after one season playing in the Championship. They have shown great performances under Vincent Kompany, the former captain of Man City. They won 101 points and won the Championship, 10 points ahead of second-placed Sheffield United. They also scored 87 goals, the highest in the league, and conceded only 35 goals, the lowest in the league.
Burnley have strengthened their squad by bringing in several new players in the summer transfer market, such as Zeki Amdouni, James Trafford, Jordan Beyer, Dara O’Shea, Michael Obafemi, Luca Koleosho, Nathan Redmond, Lawrence Vigouroux and Jacob Bruun Larsen for a total fee about 75 million pounds.
The Clarets have also had quite a good run of summer friendlies, when they won 3, drew 1 and lost 1. However, they are also aware that the Premier League is a much more difficult competition and they will have to fight hard to survive.
Man City, on the other hand, is a team that needs no introduction. They are a team that has made history by winning 3 titles last season, when they won the Premier League for the third time in a row, beat Man Utd in the FA Cup final, and beat Inter Milan in the Champions League final. City is a team that has a style of play with a strong and effective attack because it is strengthened by stars such as Erling Haaland, Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden.
Man City also didn’t change their squad much compared to last season. They only released Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez, but got Josko Gvardiol and Mateo Kovacic as replacements. They also managed to hold on to Kyle Walker and Bernardo Silva, who had been linked with several other clubs.
Man City only had three summer friendlies, when they won two and lost one. Unfortunately, entering the start of the season, City had just lost to Arsenal in the English Super Cup, which made them even more motivated to start the new season with a win.
The match between Burnley and Man City will be an unequal one. Man City is a team that is clearly superior in terms of quality and experience. Burnley will try to defend tightly and rely on counterattacks.
However, if Man City can control the ball and create chances, they will be difficult to hold. The history of meetings between the two teams also shows the dominance of Man City. In the last 16 meetings, Man City has never lost, with 15 wins. In the last 11 meetings, Man City scored 40 goals against Burnley.
