Manchester City performed a powerful performance against Burnley, winning 3-1 at home to remain in the Premier League title chase.
Pep Guardiola’s side drew level on points with Arsenal, taking second place after a superb performance that left Burnley floundering.
City’s Julian Alvarez had a huge influence, scoring twice in the first half.
His first goal came from a header off Matheus Nunes’ right-sided cross, which was followed by a clinical finish from Kevin De Bruyne’s well-executed ball after a brilliant free-kick sequence.
Shortly after the break, Phil Foden’s run down the right flank set up Rodri, who extended City’s lead with a composed finish past Burnley’s goalie James Trafford.
Guardiola was able to reintroduce Erling Haaland, who had been sidelined with an injury, although the striker appeared slightly unfeat.
Meanwhile, Burnley managed a late consolation goal when Ameen Al-Dakhil capitalized on a brilliant run by David Datro Fofana to beat Joško Gvardiol in the 93rd minute.
With the win, City prepares for their upcoming clash against Brentford, while Burnley, who remain in 19th place, seven points away from safety, will host Fulham on Saturday.
