Manchester City are still at the summit of the English Premier League (EPL) log even when they still have two games in hand.
They are level on 44 points with their neighbours, Manchester United, who thrashed nine-men Southampton 9-0 on Tuesday night.
Manchester City will look to extend their lead when they face Burnley at Turf Moor tonight.
They will be looking to become the first Premier League side since Arsenal between March and August 2002 to win 13 consecutive matches in all competitions.
Meanwhile, Burnley are winless in nine Premier League meetings with Man City (D1 L8) since a 1-0 home win in March 2015. The Clarets have conceded more Premier League goals against the Citizens than they have versus any other side (39).
Manchester City have won their last seven meetings with Burnley in all competitions by an aggregate score of 28-1, including 5-0 (Premier League) and 3-0 (League Cup) victories against the Clarets this season.
Burnley have won four of their last six home league games (D1 L1), as many as they had in their previous 16 at Turf Moor (D4 L8).
Manchester City have won each of their last three Premier League away games, having won just two of their first six on the road this season (D3 L1). They’ve netted eight goals across their last two away games (3-1 v Chelsea, 5-0 v West Brom), one more than they had in their first seven this term.
The top five consists of Manchester City (44), Manchester United (44), Liverpool (40), Leicester (39) and West Ham (35).
