Manchester City could actually be behind Liverpool by the time they kick off against Burnley. A victory for the Reds against Watford would see them overtake the current holders, something Pep Guardiola's men would no doubt be keen to correct as quickly as possible.

Sean Dyche and his side are looking to pull off another great escape, as they languish in the Premier League’s drop zone. They return from the international break four points behind 17th-placed Everton, with both teams having played 27 matches. 

Recent form is not in Burnley’s favor. Since beating Tottenham and drawing with Crystal Place at the end of February they have lost three games in a row, conceding eight goals and scoring none. 

Furthermore, they have taken just one point from the last 33 available to them in matches against Manchester City, losing their last nine meetings to an aggregate score of 32-1. The visitors also tend to do well against teams in the relegation zone, winning 24 of their last 26 such encounters. 

City also won the reverse fixture earlier this season. Surprisingly, one of the scorers in the game was not Riyad Mahrez, who has a fantastic goalscoring record against the Clarets. He has accumulated seven goals in 259 minutes since making his move from Leicester.

Home team skipper Ben Mee looks set to miss the Burnley vs Manchester City live stream due to an injury that his manager described as "a knock, a very tiny hairline kind of situation on his fibula,” that “needs taking care of.”

Manchester City defender Ruben Dias has been out since the start of March and continues to try to get back to full fitness. Teammate Jon Stones had to leave the England camp early, having felt tightness in the warm-up and withdrawing from the game against Sweden. The move was described as a “precaution” but obviously makes him doubt to take on Burnley. 

Here's how they line up:

Burnley: Pope, Roberts, Long, Tarkowski, Taylor, Lennon, Westwood, Brownhill, Cork, McNeill, Weghorst

Man City: Ederson, Walker, Ake, Laporte, Cancelo, Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne, Sterling, Grealish, Foden

Will the reigning champions earn a significant away win and move one step closer to retaining their title? Can Burnley get a shock win and supercharge their chances of Premier League survival? You can find out by watching the Liverpool vs Watford live stream — and we'll show you how to do that below.
