The new season begins, and the Citizens will attempt to defend numerous trophies after winning the triple previous season. Burnley boss Vincent Company will meet his previous manager, against whom he suffered a 6-0 defeat, for the second time.
Burnley vs Man City Predicted Lineups and News
Pep Guardiola’s team will make their Premier League debut against Burnley at Turf Moor Stadium on August 11th at 15:00.
Team News: Burnley
Burnley returns to the Premier League after a year in the Championship. The team worked hard to ensure that their stint in the second level was brief. Vincent Company, a former Manchester City player, was in charge of the team, and after 46 rounds, The Clarets finished first, 10 points clear of second and 21 points ahead of third.
Nathan Tello’s outstanding performance as the team’s top scorer with 17 goals and 5 assists proved critical. However, the English player returned to Southampton at the end of his loan, adding to the list of departures that the Belgian coach will have to deal with. One of the key goals will be to finish in the middle of the table and avoid the specter of relegation.
Burnley Predicted Lineup: 4-2-3-1
Trafford – Robert, Beyer, O’Shea, Vitinho – Cork, Cullen – Redmond, Brownhill, Zaroury – Amdouni

One of the most difficult jobs facing the Spanish coach is reuniting the team after the departure of several key players. Marhez and Gundogan were key components in winning the triple; both have already left the club, and there are speculations of other exits, with the market still open.
Mateo Kovacic, one of their new signings, will almost certainly be present on Premier League matchday 1. The starting lineup for the upcoming season may differ from that of the previous year. Furthermore, Pep frequently rotates players until he finds his perfect 11-man lineup, which worked last season when they ultimately won the Champions League.
Man City Predicted Lineup: 4-3-3
Ederson – Akanji, Stones, Díaz, Ake – Rodri, Kovacic, De Bruyne – Silva, Haaland, Grealish
Will Bernardo Silva Today
Throughout the preseason, the future of the Portuguese player has been a question mark. Rumors about the winger’s desire to move to Barcelona, the long wait for an offer from the Catalan team, and a strong offer from PSG, are some of the most talked-about news.
Despite this, Pep Guardiola has expressed that he counts on Bernardo, but at the same time, he will not oppose any player who wishes to leave, as long as they receive a fair offer. The Portuguese player was a starter in the Community Shield match and will probably be in the Burnley vs Man City possible lineups.
