Default Squad sheets: Manchester City v Burnley

Burnley's away record (five games, five defeats) should encourage Manchester City to believe they can pull out of a four-draw drift. Owen Coyle has little slack in his squad and injuries will probably persuade him to field the same starting XI, which includes two former City full-backs, Stephen Jordan and Tyrone Mears. City expect to welcome back two absentees from the goalless draw at Birmingham, Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Touré, who together cost £41m, which is £38m more than Burnley paid for Stephen Fletcher, their record signing. It hardly seems fair but Burnley keep on attacking, even away. Jeremy Alexander
