Report: Burnley 1-2 Man City – 26/11/16

REPORT

Sergio Aguero scored twice as City came back from a goal down to earn a hard-fought win at Turf Moor and claim back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time since September.

Burnley had a penalty shout before surprisingly taking lead when Clarets midfielder Dean Marney who volleyed in from 25 yards.

The Blues struggled to find their flow but their pressure was eventually rewarded as Sergio Aguero equalised with a classic poacher’s goal after a corner was deflected into his path.

Pep Guardiola’s side controlled the game after the break and took the lead when a Fernandinho cross hit Aguero and went in after some sloppy Burnley defending.

Clarets defender Michael Keane had a late header blocked by Aleksandar Kolarov and an overhead kick from Ashley Barnes was saved by Claudio Bravo but Burnley failed to prevent a third home loss in the top flight this season.
