  • FBL-ESP-LIGA-ATHLETIC-SEVILLA

It's highly unlikely that Pep Guardiola's men will be caught in the race for the Premier League title this season, but that doesn't mean they aren't immune to a slip-up or two.

RAHEEM STERLING is having the most prolific season of his career at Manchester City, with many of his goals deciding the outcome of matches.

City are 16 points clear at the top before second-placed Manchester United host Huddersfield later on Saturday.

City had over 70 percent possession against Sean Dyche's team but after Brazilian Danilo gave the visitors a 22nd minute lead, they failed to turn that dominance into goals and paid the price when Johann Berg Gudmundsson levelled in the 82nd.

Gudmundsson quietly goes about his business but, statistically, no one has been involved in more Burnley goals than the Iceland global this season.

Leroy Sane, David Silva, John Stones, Fabian Delph, Gabriel Jesus and Benjamin Mendy are all absent through injury, but in spite of his enormous squad and even larger academy system, Guardiola has elected to name just six substitutes for the match.

Andre Drummond (illness) active, starting for Pistons

Kyle Walker made a great run down the right flank and Kevin de Bruyne found him with a perfectly weighted pass.

"The next day you focus on the next one (chance)". "I'm very pleased to take a point against them - but, of course, another game without a win". "I'm sad for the players because we played so well", he said.

"What they have done this season, Burnley, is incredible".

"We didn't have any more players", Guardiola said. 19-year-old forward Lukas Nmecha has been training with first team, and didn't play in that second team game last night (a defeat to Swansea's under-23s). "I have a little idea about the players who are going to join us in the States but we are going (to) see".

"We started putting quality into their box, and in the end it was a fantastic ball and a fantastic goal".
