EPL: Man City drop points at Burnley

Burnley fought valiantly to share points with runaway English Premier League leaders, Manchester City in the match played today at Turf Moor.

Danilo had put City ahead in the 22nd minute.

But if the Pep Guardiola’s boys had thought the encounter was going to be another routine victory on the road, they were jolted to reality in the 82nd minute, when Johann Berg Gudmundsson latched on a cross by Mathew Lowton to even scores for the hosts.

City dominated proceedings, having 71 per cent of possession and more shots at goal than their hosts. But they faced a resilient side, who were not just ready to surrender to their opponents superior fire power.

Gudmundsson said at the end of the match: “”It was a great ball from Lowton, and it’s great for me to score. We created a few chances, managed to get the goal and 1-1 is a great result for us”.

Despite the result, City are 16 points away from second placed Manchester United, who will host Huddersfield later today and 19 points from third placed Chelsea and Liverpool on Day 26 of the league.
