Sane joins Sterling and Aguero in the City attack at Turf Moor

The penultimate match of Gameweek 36 takes place at Turf Moor as Manchester City aim to extend their 11-match winning run and return to the top of the Premier League table.

Kick-off in Lancashire is at 14:05 BST.

There are no huge shocks in Pep Guardiola’s starting XI, with Fernandinho not recovering from the knee problem he picked up in midweek.

Bernardo Silva has thus dropped back into central midfield alongside David Silva and anchor Ilkay Gundogan, so Leroy Sane is handed a start on the left flank.

Raheem Sterling moves over to the right wing, with Sergio Aguero leading the line once more.

City’s back four is unchanged.

Sean Dyche has named the same starting XI for the fourth game in succession, with Phil Bardsley still not having recovered from a gashed leg.

The Burnley manager has resisted the urge to pack his midfield and defence for the visit of the reigning champions, pairing Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes in attack for the 17th league match in a row.

Outside of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, Aguero and Sterling were the two most-popular Triple Captain choices of Gameweek 36: 14,542 managers backed the Argetinean striker, with 8,997 deploying the chip on Sterling.

Bernardo was the second-most-bought FPL player of Gameweek 36, having been transferred in by 146,541 Fantasy bosses.

Aguero and Aymeric Laporte were also bought by over 100,000 FPL managers this week.

Burnley XI: Heaton, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Hendrick, Cork, Westwood, McNeil, Wood, Barnes.

Subs: Hart, Gudmundsson, Gibson, Ward, Vydra, Long, Driscoll-Glennon.

Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Bernardo, Silva, Sterling, Sane, Aguero.

Subs: Muric, Danilo, Stones, Mahrez, Otamendi, Jesus, Foden.

          Meh my own fault. Poor decisions this week again. Been playing on tilt for a few weeks. Easily 50-100 points lost in that time due to aggressive transfers.

          Could have easily made Top10k, ah well

        Why did you play Doherty/Duffy in front of JWP ? BOU leak goals
        Is it coz of JWP playing wingback previous game ?

          I don't know really, was dissapointed in Southampton during their dgw. Thought Brighton would keep Newcastle out and Doherty is Doherty

      4. iyiy
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Nope. That's below par.

          Depends who you triple captain though.

          1. pingissimus
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Above par actually - no chip average was 79 and TC 99 in top 10k

          2. pingissimus
              1 month, 29 days ago

              You’re just ten off the TC top 10k average score

            • TheDragon
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Yes with score but clearly you should’ve played TC this week

            • Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 29 days ago

              No, I got 98 without chip, 100+ should be achievable.
