Burnley vs. Manchester City: Pep Guardiola's Key Pre-Match Presser Comments

Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne feels a lack of European football this season has given Chelsea and Liverpool a distinct advantage in the Premier League title race.

"We have qualification in the bag, so that's decided until February and we can focus on other things". Standing in their way will be a resolute and gritty Burnley side.

Silva levelled just before the interval but the second half proved a disjointed affair after Lars Stindl for the hosts and Fernandinho for City were both sent off for second bookable offences. With four wins and two draws to their name from the first 12 round of fixtures, the Clarets find themselves sitting at 12th on the table.

And Manchester City's officials are reportedly set to meet after Sunday's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to discuss emergency transfer plans. The Ivorian bagged both of City's goals as they raced to a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

Toure could also return to Guardiola's Champions League squad, for the knock-out phase of the tournament - having been left out of his initial squad selection for the group stages.

One minute later, City found an equaliser through Silva, who nudged the ball home from close range after De Bruyne fizzed the ball across goal after darting towards the byline.

Sergio Aguero started limping towards the end of the game, but Guardiola insisted it was nothing to worry about.

"They were fully deserving of everything and we simply weren't", manager Sean Dyche told Burnley's official website. Steven Defour, Dean Marney and Jeff Hendrick will operate as three central midfielders with Johann Gudmondsson and Scott Arfield on the wings. Fernandinho gave some defensive help as well while Raheem Sterling and Jesus Navas tracked back from the wing.

In wake of his latest injury, City fans and foes alike have called on Kompany to hang up his boots for good.

Key Stat: One for the road - Manchester City have won their last five Premier League away games.

It wasn't the strongest performance by the Citizens, but it was enough to see them through under their new boss.

But City are in last 16 for the fourth straight year and Guardiola was delighted to have progressed.

Thus, he would be aching to have a go against Burnley and silence his critics.

Vincent Kompany has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a knee injury, Pep Guardiola has confirmed.
