Manchester City XI vs Burnley: Confirmed team news, starting lineup, injury latest today – Evening Standard

A

fter a night of high drama in the Premier League on Tuesday, Wednesday should offer plenty more action up and down the table.

Tuesday’s action offered plenty of goals and VAR controversy, with Wolves battling back to beat nine-man Arsenal – who had David Luiz and Bernd Leno sent off on a miserable night at Molineux. The Gunners are appealing Luiz’s red card, though the immediate result left Mikel Arteta’s side in 10th place.

Sheffield United beat fellow strugglers West Brom 2-1 to spark hopes of an unlikely relegation escape act, while Crystal Palace won 2-1 at Newcastle – but the tie of the evening came at Old Trafford as Manchester United equalled a League record with a 9-0 drubbing of nine-man Southampton.

Tonight’s five games have a lot to live up to after that excitement, but leaders Man City are looking to go clear of rivals United as they face Burnley at Turf Moor. Fulham host Leicester City, Everton travel to Leeds United, champions Liverpool look to continue their fine form with an Anfield clash against Brighton, while West Ham will be aiming to return to winning ways in what could be a lively encounter at Aston Villa.
