Burnley 1-1 Manchester City: 5 Talking Points

Burnley's English defender Ben Mee tries to get his head on the ball during Danny Drinkwater sends Chelsea FC warning to Man City
Eugene Bates | 07 February, 2018, 02:02

Pep Guardiola's team, leading from Danilo's first half goal, looked well in control but Sterling's blunder 20 minutes from time offered a lifeline and renewed belief to the home side.

The Manchester City forward received a squared ball from Kyle Walker inside the six yard box but incredibly fired wide with the goal gaping.

Matt Lowton's deep cross didn't look particularly unsafe, but Walker lost sight of Johann Berg Gudmundsson, who got in front of his marker and finished emphatically on the half-volley.

Sanchez injected a fresh dose of dynamism to Manchester United and scored - immediately after missing a penalty - on debut to beat Huddersfield 2-0.

The Chile worldwide saw his penalty saved in the 68th minute but scored when the ball richocheted off goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.

"We didn't really play with the quality needed in the first half".

He said: "Because they're doing so well against anyone - they're the best side in the division and the best squad in the division - overall, I think everyone takes a point against them".

Danny Drinkwater sends Chelsea FC warning to Man City

If money in football can't buy you happiness, it won't eliminate the petty moaning of Premier League managers either. The Clarets have won eight points in the last ten minutes of matches this season, the division's third-best record. They are injured. I would like to have 18 players, but we had 17.

This weekend Arsenal face a pivotal trip to Wembley to take on Spurs and defeat would leave them with a mountain to climb to finish above their north London rivals this season. We have known these are hard fixtures - Liverpool at home (a 3-0 loss on Tuesday) and today in four days.

Otherwise, they have an excellent run of winnable games against Brighton [A], Watford [H], Leicester [A], Stoke [H], Southampton [H], Newcastle [A], West Ham [H], Burnley [H] and Huddersfield [A]. However, with the match at Anfield which is not an easy ground to come away with a win the tied might likely change.

"Now you see more that it's his team".

- Johann Berg Gudmondson has been directly involved in seven Premier League goals this season (2 goals, 5 assists), more than any other Burnley player.

"There's one thing you know when you play Burnley, they're well-organised and well-disciplined".

Guardiola, speaking to Sky Sports: "We played so good, we just missed the last moment to try to score the second one and playing away in the Premier League, in the last 10 minutes anything can happen".
