Manchester City to win 3-0

Erling Haaland’s status for Burnley revealed

Ahead of the game, Pep Guardiola has confirmed the return of Erling Haaland to the Manchester City squad:

“First time he is back,” Guardiola stated in his pre-match press conference. We have all the squad, we are stronger. [Haaland] is an important player for us.

“The most important news is almost all of the squad is fit. We don’t have injuries. [Akanji] is back, training well, he doesn’t feel his knee. John [Stones] as well.”

Wednesday’s game will be the first time since the opening game of the season - when Kevin De Bruyne was injured - that Man City will have a fully-fit squad.

Despite injury issues to major names, City are still very much in the title race and only two points off Liverpool if they win their game in hand.
