It was just the fourth time that City had not won a Premier League game this season, but Guardiola was still enthused with his side's display.

Ederson showed he is just as impressive with his hands as he is with his feet by producing a world-class save from Aaron Lennon, as the hosts sensed their opportunity, but the Brazilian could do nothing as Johann Berg Gudmundsson stole in round the back to fire home from close range with just eight minutes to go.

City extended their lead to 16 points over second-placed rivals Manchester United, who were hosting Huddesfield Town later on Saturday.

Gudmundsson quietly goes about his business but, statistically, no one has been involved in more Burnley goals than the Iceland global this season.

The latter half of the game in the same manner, with City keeping maximum possession and threatening the opponents with their lethal attacking, but again they failed to take advantage of the chances created and missed many.

Offensive lineman LaAdrian Waddle and running back Mike Gillislee missed part of practice for the third day in a row. With the Super Bowl eight days away, this is an encouraging sign for Gronkowski and the entire New England offense.

With John Stones and David Silva this week joining Fabian Delph, Benjamin Mendy, Phil Foden, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane on the sidelines, City were short on numbers.

Kyle Walker made a great run down the right flank and Kevin de Bruyne found him with a perfectly weighted pass. Today he missed one chance. However, Guardiola's team is still leading the points table with a good margin.

"We missed the last moment to try to score the second one and after, of course playing in the Premier League, especially away in the last 10 minutes with 1-0, anything can happen".

"What they have done this season, Burnley, is awesome".

"If you're a youth team manager at Manchester City, ring him up and ask which kid deserves that boost". We have one goalkeeper and five players. "They are injured. I would like to have 18 players, but we had 17. We started putting quality into their box, and in the end, it was a fantastic ball and a fantastic goal", said Dyche.
