Manchester City Beat Burnley At Home, Extend Winning Streak

Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling scored a goal each in the first half to lead a dominant Manchester City to a comfortable 2-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.

It took Manchester City just three minutes to open the scoring through Gabriel Jesus who got the rebound and headed home after Nick Pope denied Bernardo Silva.

Pep Guardiola’s side instantly pushed for a second and managed to head into half time with a two-goal lead after Ilkay Gundogan teed up Sterling, who tapped the ball into an empty net.

Joao Cancelo wasted a big chance to score a third before the interval, while Gundogan sent his effort from the edge of the box just wide and Sterling failed to beat Pope just after the break.

Riyad Mahrez netted one of his own just before the hour mark, but his goal was ruled out for offside by VAR.

Burnley freshened up their team but barely got into the Sky Blues box in the second period, as Guardiola’s men circulated the ball smoothly and dominated to possession to see off the duel.

Manchester City remain top of the Premier League table, having collected 47 points after 21 games, while Burnley sit 16th, eight points clear of the relegation zone.
