Manchester City to win and under 2.5 goals at 12/5 with William Hill

Manchester City have seemingly recovered from the mini-blip that they went through over the New Year. First, they dropped points for the first time in 18 Premier League games, one short of the European record for consecutive wins. Crystal Palace held them, before they went on to lose for the first time domestically at Liverpool last month. Their dream of going the entire season unbeaten may be over, but they are still chasing an unprecedented quadruple.

Pep Guardiola, the City manager, says both dreams are and were impossible, but even he must start to believe soon. The most impressive thing about his side is that they have dominated without changing their style; they are just too good in every sense. Their 15-point lead atop the Premier League has been restored, and their next challenge, at highflying Burnley, is another winnable one. It may be tough at Turf Moor, but we are backing them for the win.

Every team loses eventually, so it is unfair to fixate on City’s one league defeat this season. But that is literally the only thing of note that can be put to them. They have been by far and away the best team this season and, though it cannot be said until the title is won, possibly the best the league has ever seen. Guardiola’s side have not changed their approach, but they’ve proven to be too strong in almost every game.

Despite sitting eighth in the league, Burnley have not won in eight games. But relegation is far from a real worry for them.
