FULL TIME 

City hold on for a 2-0 victory. Not a joyous occasion as many of these wins have been at the Etihad under Pep Guardiola but three points nontheless. Thanks for following the match with us.

89' 

Silva gets a chance to run through on goal but rather than shoot when entering the box looks to turn Collins and is dispossessed.

86' 

Foden is through on goal but Pope comes out of his box to deny him.

84'

De Bruyne is replaced by Fernandinho.

84' 

Foden is through on goal but Tarkowski is strong and shoulders him, fairly, to the ground.

82'

Rodriguez comes on for Wood for Burnley.

81'

McNeil's free kick is won by Collins and Wood then on the stretch shoots from six yards out, clipping the outside of the crossbar.

75' 

Nice turn and shot from Barnes 25 yards from goal but he cannot keep his shot down.

73'

Dias replaces Laporte for City.

72'

Cork is replaced by Gudmundsson for Burnley.

70'

GOAL FOR CITY! De Bruyne slams home with his left foot after it appeared Mahrez had been felled in the penalty area. With the ball rifling unerringly in the penalty area, we may never know if the referee would have given a spot kick.

68' 

Mahrez drifts in from the right flank but is dispossessed by a fine challenge from McNeil on the edge of his box.

63' 

Cancelo shoots at goal after Sterling dribbles inside and sets him up in the right hand side of the penalty area but his shot is deflected wide.

62' 

A great cross from Cancelo from the right flank finds Silva at the back post but his header back into the box is cleared away.

58' 

Immediately Barnes has a chance after a mistake from Cancelo but Steffen saves well.

57'

It is Burnley who make the first change though with Barnes coming on for Cornet - expect crosses to come raining in now.

56' 

A good spell of play for City ends with a poor cross from Sterling and you wonder if he or Mahrez may be dragged off by Guardiola soon.

53' 

Sterling tries to play a low ball to Foden in the centre but Pope dives forward to claim the ball in front of the City man.

51' 

Silva slips a ball through to Foden who tries to lob Pope, who was off his line, but he was wise to his England team-mate's ploy.

50' 

Silva gets the by-line and pulls back to Mahrez who shoots just over the bar.

48' 

Silva has the first effort of the second half, after being fed by De Bruyne, but shoots over the bar.

46'

City get the second half underway...

HALF TIME

Just about a fair result. City at times looked very dominant but Burnley have had their chances as well.

45+5' 

Optimistic penalty shout from Burnley as Tarkowski headed the ball goalwards and Steffen beat Wood to the ball and fisted it away from danger.

45+4' 

VAR check if it was worth more than a yellow card but deem the referee got it right.

45+2'

Laporte catches McNeil late leading to some pushing and shoving from both sets of players. The Argentine defender receives a yellow card.

44' 

Lovely skill from Silva after receiving a short pass in the box from De Bruyne he bamboozles Collins going in, then outside of him but his shot is over the bar.

43' 

A good ball for De Bruyne into the box for Sterling but he miscontrols and the danger is cleared. Just not an easy game for him at the moment.

40' 

Sterling tries an acrobatic effort from Mahrez's cross but Collins blocks his effort, which Pope probably would have saved anyway.

38' 

Stones panics under pressure from Cornet for a moment but gets in a good last-ditch tackle to deny the Burnley forward.

36'

From nowhere, Cork has an age of space in the box and his low cross is blocked by Stones to Brownhill eight yards out but his shot is wide of the target. As good a chance as Burnley will get.

33' 

Foden gets to the by-line and pulls back for Mahrez on the edge of the box who skies high over the bar.

31' 

Mahrez is found by Rodri's fantastic diagonal ball but his side-footed shot is easy for Pope to gather.

31' 

McNeil is down from a challenge from Ake and the City fans give the ex-United colt some jeers.

29' 

A bit of pressure from Burnley as Pieters and Lowton put in crosses but City deal clear both.

27' 

Cancelo puts a cross into the box but Burnley clear the danger.

23' 

Cornet latches onto a fine through-ball from McNeill but Steffen stands tall and blocks the shot and then the Ivorian international fires over the rebound.

21' 

A low cross from the left wing from De Bruyne is easily gathered by Pope.

16' 

Mahrez runs through on goal and feeds De Bruyne in the left hand side of the area but Collins gets in a crucial tackle.

15' 

Lovely ball from De Bruyne finds Cancelo at the back post and his volley is saved by Pope who spread himself.

12'

GOAL FOR CITY! Bernardo Silva slots home from close range after Foden's shot was saved on the stretch by Pope giving the Portuguese star an easy finish.

10' 

A long ball over the top is chased by Cornet, very much in a front two with Wood, but Steffen came out and cleared with a header, and in any case it was offside.

8' 

Burnley have settled well into the game now. A big contrast from Watford against Liverpool earlier.

5' 

Mahrez shoots well from 25 yards out but Pope was down to his left to comfortably gather.

4' 

It looks like Sterling will play in a more central role today, that's certainly where he's started.

1' 

Bright start from Burnley as Wood crosses from the left flank for Cornet who just fails to get a good contact on the cross and Steffen comes out to gather.

1'

Burnley get the game underway...

14:57 

The players are on the field now, we're almost ready to go...

14:50 

City can go ahead of Liverpool on top of the table with a win, before Chelsea have a chance to go back to the summit in the late game against Brentford.

14:39 

It looks like Burnley will play a 4-5-1 with recent signing Cornet looking to support Chris Wood from wide areas.

14:35 

Phil Foden after playing deeper for England will play in a false number nine today and you'd bank on him to get an assist or two with Mahrez and Sterling making runs behind the Clarets defence.

14:25 

No Jack Grealish in the starting line-up for City so Raheem Sterling will return to the left flank where he has done so much damage for the Citizens over the last five years.

14:15 

This is the team Sean Dyche will have believing can take on one of the toughest tasks in world football at the Etihad Stadium.

14:10 

This is the side Pep Guardiola is entrusting to do the business for City today...

14:09
