Vincent Kompany and his Clarets return to Premier League against the Treble winners

After a long summer, The Premier League starts today as defending champions Manchester City gears up against Burnley at Turf Moor.

Manchester City arrives in style after dominating Europe in three ways – Premier League, FA Cup, and UEFA Champions League. Erling Haaland and his team have been nothing but an obstacle to every other team in the 20-sided competition. On the other hand, Burnley has had an incredible run in the EFL Championship. Under the former Man City legend Vincent Kompany, The Clarets finished the EFL Championship on top, automatically qualifying for the Premier League.

Manchester City, although will miss former captain Ilkay Gundogan, has added Josko Gvardiol and Mateo Kovacic to the squad. Similarly. Burnley has made some new additions in Nathan Redmond and Bruun Larsen. The Clarets and Vincent Kompany face a tough task in their opening game. The statistics point out that no Burnley manager has won their first-ever PL game with Burnley.

Burnley and Manchester City have locked horns 92 times, of which the former won just 26 times. City won 46 outings while they drew in 20 outings. Furthermore, Man City has won against the Clarets in the league since 1974. The last outing between the two saw City steamrolling Burnley 6-0 with Haaland making a hattrick. The odds are in favor of the Treble winners to win today’s outing blindfolded. Also Read: Who is Marcus Stoinis Girlfriend? Know all about Sarah Czarnuch
