Manchester City will break an English football record if they beat Burnley by five goals in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Manchester City have set their sights on breaking an English football record on Saturday.

The Premier League champions currently sit third in the table, but will be hoping to move top when they host Burnley.

The last four games between Man City and the Clarets at the Etihad Stadium have ended 5-0 to Pep Guardiola's side - that includes three Premier League meetings and one FA Cup tie.

However, no team in English football has previously ever won five home games in a row against the same opponent by five or more goals.

Man City have already scored five goals in a match on four occasions this season, beating Norwich City and Arsenal 5-0 in the league and putting six past Wycombe Wanderers and RB Leipzig in the EFL Cup and Champions League respectively.

Meanwhile, Burnley are yet to win a Premier League game this season and have only kept one clean sheet in their opening seven fixtures.
