City go 16 points clear at the top after dropping points at the Turn Moor.

Manchester City drop points only for the 4th time this season.

Raheem Sterling’s Miss of the season prevented The Sky Blues from taking all 3 points on their tricky away fixture against Burnley. 

The Clarets made the most of Manchester City’s wastefulness to snatch a 1-1 draw on Saturday. Despite their dominance, City had looked on course for another hard fought win, until Johann Gudmundsson popped up in the 83rd minute to snatch a point.

The Burnley backline could do nothing to stop Danilo’s long-distance rocket midway through the first half, but City’s failure to add to their tally left the game on a knife-edge, with Raheem Sterling guilty of two shocking close-range misses. After Aaron Lennon’s fierce shot was tipped onto the post by Ederson, Burnley kept at it and Gudmundsson kept his cool to deny them a win.

City boss Guardiola was forced to shrug off claims from Manchester United counterpart Jose Mourinho that the destination of the Premier League title is already certain, with the leaders enjoying a 15-point cushion at the top.

That advantage was 16 points by the full-time whistle at Turf Moor, and City are just eight wins away from securing a third title, although they were reminded of the league’s many hazards by Sean Dyche’s men.

Raheem Sterling’s will go down as the Miss of the season. City were leading 1-0 away at Burnley, İlkay Gündoğan played a super cross across the face of goal and all it needed was the simplest touch for 2-0.

But the England winger somehow managed to miss a chance from TWO yards.
