Next up for Manchester City is the small matter of their Champions League last 16 second-leg tie against Barcelona at the Nou Camp on Wednesday.

The Catalans, who recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory over Eibar in La Liga today, will have seen nothing to suggest that their 2-1 advantage from the first tie is under any great threat.

That is all from us today, thanks for reading. We will be back tomorrow for live coverage of Chelsea v Southampton, Manchester United v Tottenham and Everton v Newcastle in the Premier League.

Until then, goodnight.


It's all over and Burnley have given themselves a real lifeline in the battle against the drop with a remarkable victory over the defending champions in front of a jubilant home crowd. Dyche's side are now just one place and one point adrift of dismal Sunderland in 17th.

Manchester City were insipid at best and failed to convert their possession into meaningful chances. That result makes great reading for Jose Mourinho, of course, as it means that Chelsea retain their five-point buffer over the Citizens having played two games less.

Speculation regarding Pellegrini's future was already mounting prior to this evening's contest at Turf Moor and it seems increasingly unlikely that he will be in charge of City beyond the end of the season.


Full-time score

Burnley 1-0 Manchester City


A controversial moment as referee Marriner denies Manchester City a stoppage-time penalty as Ben Mee slides in rather recklessly on Zabaleta.

Burnley very fortunate, there.


Four minutes of added time to be played at Turf Moor. Can Manchester City salvage anything from this game?


Lampard has a free-kick in a good position for City but his poor attempt cannons into the wall. Jovetic then shoots well wide under pressure from four determined Burnley players.

Dyche tries to shore things up with the introduction of Stephen Ward. The Irish full-back replaces Vokes.


Another big chance missed by Manchester City. Toure is given far too much space to pick out the unmarked Aguero with a looped cross to the back post, but his header goes over the cross bar.

Toure is now off, replaced by Lampard with a little under 10 minutes remaining.


Yaya Toure inexplicably gives the ball away deep into his own half but Danny Ings' indecisiveness prevents Burnley taking advantage.

Manchester City's subsequent break comes to nothing as fellow Ivorian Bony shoots straight at the grateful Heaton.


A second substitute for Manchester City as Jovetic replaces Silva. 17 minutes remaining to find a way back into this game.


Game very much on at Turf Moor as Burnley break the deadlock. A Kieran Trippier free-kick is headed away by Kompany, but the ball falls perfectly for Boyd on the edge of the box and he strikes it perfectly on the half-volley and into the bottom corner.

Pellegrini responds by bringing on Bony in place of Dzeko.


Goal: Burnley 1-0 Manchester City (George Boyd)


Bony and Nasri among the substitutes warming up for City as Dzeko sends a hopeful shot spiralling towards the corner flag. The former Wolfsburg striker likely to make way soon, you would have thought.

Jesus Navas and Martin Demichelis both in the book, meanwhile.


This game is really opening up as we approach the hour mark. George Boyd sends a sweetly struck volley wide of Hart's left-hand post after Sam Vokes' cross was headed clear.


Another good chance for Pellegrini's side as Pablo Zabaleta shows great strength to surge to the byline but his low cross is flashed wide by compatriot Aguero.


Burnley are caught cold on the counter by the wonderful skill and pace of Aguero, who delays his pass to Silva ever so slightly and that causes the Spaniard to drift wide. Glorious chance for City that should have been converted.


Plenty of positive intent from the hosts since the restart, but they too are seriously lacking that quality final ball.

Manchester City will need to considerably up the tempo if they are to win this match.


A brief break in play as Michael Duff receives treatment following a bad challenge from Aguero, who can count himself a little fortunate not to have been reprimanded by referee Andre Marriner.


The teams are back out and the second half has now kicked off with no substitutes used by either manager. Can Manchester City find the breakthrough or will Burnley continue to frustrate?


The tale of the first half...


Pellegrini will demand more of his players in the second half. Manchester City simply must win tonight and their lethargic performance in that opening 45 will have disappointed the experienced Chilean.

One wonders how long it will be until we see the likes of Samir Nasri, Frank Lampard and Wilfried Bony. Stevan Jovetic is also on the bench for City.


Not a great first half by any means, but Burnley will be happy to go into the break level. Manchester City, as you might expect have largely monopolised possession but have failed to create many clear-cut chances.


Half-time score

Burnley 0-0 Manchester City


Burnley beginning to live dangerously as David Silva splits the defence with a lovely pass to Dzeko who is prevented a goal thanks to a last-ditch challenge from captain Jason Shackell. Aguero fires wide after collecting another rebound. Ten minutes until half-time.


A spell of pressure for Manchester City sees Fernandinho feed Dzeko with a clever through ball, but the Bosnian is forced wide and thwarted by Tom Heaton. Aguero picks up the rebound but his shot is comfortably saved.

At the other end, Hart is down to smother a low effort from Scott Arfield.
