Manchester City puts pressure on league leaders with a 3-1 win over Burnley

Manchester City puts pressure on league leaders with a 3-1 win over Burnley.

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.

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.
