When is Manchester City v Burnley?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Monday June 22.

What time does Manchester City v Burnley kick-off?

The game is the return of Monday Night Football, so will kick off as usual at 8pm.

What is at stake?

Very little, in truth. Manchester City are in no real danger of slipping out of the Champions League places, but also are too far behind Liverpool to make a push for the Premier League title.

Burnley perhaps have an outside chance of forcing their way into Europa League contention, but for the most part the Clarets are safely tucked up in mid-table without a care in the world.

Where can I watch Manchester City v Burnley?

It’s Monday Night Football, and that means Sky Sports.

Is Manchester City v Burnley free-to-air?

It’s not. Monday Night Football has always been a flagship subscription offering for Sky Sports, and so it apparently remains.

What is the team news?

John Stones or Ilkay Gundogan are injury doubts for Man City, but not serious ones. German winger Leroy Sane is also back for Pep Guardiola’s men, which is a welcome bonus after missing him for so much of the campaign.

Burnley will likely have to do without strikers Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood for their trip to the Etihad. Barnes has failed to recover from a double hernia after encountering some complications. Wood, meanwhile, is battling an Achilles injury.

What happened in the reverse match?

Gabriel Jesus helped himself to a brace back in December as Man City powered to a 4-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

What are the odds?

Manchester City are very strong favourites at 1/6. Burnley can be backed at 14/1, and the draw is available at around 6/1.
