He will likely come up against Gabriel Jesus and if he can keep the Brazilian marksman quiet then Sean Dyche's men will be halfway to a positive result. Key stat: Only Virgil van Dijk (75) has won more aerial duels as a defender than Mee (70) in the Premier League this season. Man City: Gabriel Jesus Man City will know what to expect from Burnley, so the question is can Jesus perform on a cold Tuesday night at Turf Moor?

Burnley were very impressive against Watford and West Ham with their tough, dominant strikers, wiry midfielders and creative wingers to the fore but were awful in the first-half during Saturday's defeat by Crystal Palace when they stopped passing it quickly to feet as they had done in the preceding wins and started knocking it long. Guardiola says going to Turf Moor is like a trip to the dentist. Manchester City will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor this evening.
