EPL: Manchester City reclaim top spot with win at Burnley | Soccer News


BURNLEY: Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League table with a convincing 2-0 win at relegation-threatened Burnley on Saturday.
Needing a win to reclaim top spot after title rivals Liverpool beat Watford earlier on Saturday, first-half goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan sealed all three points for Pep’s side Guardiola.
City dominated possession throughout and they got off to a perfect start taking a fifth-minute lead after De Bruyne pounced on Raheem Sterling’s soft pass inside the box and pulled the trigger to find the upper corner.
Sterling and De Bruyne helped double City’s lead 20 minutes later when a quick one-two pass allowed the England striker to sprint down the right flank and cross the box for Gundogan to score.
City had a second-half wake-up call when Burnley nearly recovered one as Maxwel Cornet’s header was cleared off the line by Nathan Ake. Although Cornet was later flagged offside, the move prompted Burnley to press for a goal.
But City improved soon after and they could have scored more. The result moved them a point clear of Liverpool while Burnley’s fourth straight loss leaves Sean Dyche’s side 19th, but with games fewer on the relegation fighters.
