Carabao Cup: Burnley Vs Manchester City Today At 7pm

FootballPreview: Burnley vs. Manchester City – prediction, team news, lineupsBy Barney Corkhill, Editor | 7hManchester City continue the defence of their EFL Cup crown when they visit Burnley at Turf Moor in the fourth round on Wednesday night.The holders will demand a swift response to their chastening 5-2 home defeat at the hands of Leicester City at the weekend, while Burnley are also looking to bounce back from a home league loss.Match previewJust three matches into the new season and already the same questions are being asked of Manchester City – most specifically their defensive frailties.Pep Guardiola’s side boasted 72% possession and had 16 shots during Sunday’s showdown with Leicester, yet they still contrived to concede five goals – including three penalties – as Jamie Vardy led the Foxes’ rout with a hat-trick.The statistics make grim reading; it is the first time in 438 games at the Etihad Stadium that Man City have shipped five goals, and the first time it has happened to any of Guardiola’s teams throughout his 686-game managerial career.The criticism of Leicester’s tactics from Guardiola and midfielder Rodri in the aftermath of the match, when they accused Brendan Rodgers’s side of playing with 11 men behind the ball, may have been harsh, but they are likely to be faced with that proposition to an even greater extent at Turf Moor.
