Man City Drop Points Against Burnley

English Premier League

Full Time: Burnley 1-1 Manchester City

Date: 3 February 2018

Venue: Turf Moor

Manchester City squandered opportunity after opportunity as they dropped two points following their 1-1 draw against Burnley in the English Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

City controlled the flow of play from the onset, but for all their pressure they struggled to break down a resilient Burnley defence early on.

Finally, the visitors made their pressure tell in the 22nd minute when Bernardo Silva played Danilo into space on the edge of the box and he proceeded to chip the ball into the net after spotting the goalkeeper off his line, 1-0.

Ten minutes later Burnley nearly equalised when Ben Mee broke through on goal, but he was superbly thwarted in a one-on-one with the City goalkeeper.

City should have scored their second goal on the stroke of half time when Sergio Aguero beat two defender before unleashing a powerful 18-yard shot, but Nick Pope produced a wonderful save to deny him.

Ten minutes into the second half Aguero turned provider when he played a great through ball for Raheem Sterling, but the City man shot over the target with just the keeper to beat.

Sterling missed another golden chance to score in the 71st minute when he got onto the end of a pin-point pass from Kyle Walker, but he fired inches wide of the target from just inside the box.

City were made to pay for their missed opportunities when Burnley equalised in the 82nd minute after Matthew Lowton played Johann Gudmundsson into space inside the box and he duly fired home from 14-yards out, 1-1.

City threw players forward in the dying minutes of the match, but were unable to find a winner.
