Manchester City is convincingly leading the Premier League table with 16 points advantage from second place Manchester United, but it doesn’t mean that gap can’t be reduced. Seventh placed Burnley held Premier League leader Manchester City for a 1-1 draw at their home ground Turf Moor.

Pep Guardiola’s City side enjoyed a impressive start in their away fixture as Danilo strikes a 25-yard effort in the top corner of the net. The game could have easily been put into rest, but Citizens squandered many chances and it gave Sean Dyche’s side opportunity to fight back.

Raheem Sterling misses a tap-in from three yards and Ederson makes two world-class saves in either half to save Burnley suffering from a disappointment. It was Man City who suffered late in the game as Johann Berg Gudmundsson met substitute Matthew Lawton’s cross to volley home a deserved equalizer with eight minutes left to play in normal time.

Citizens were denied the three points at Turf Moor, but they still enjoy the 16 points advantage at the summit. Manchester united will be able to reduce the gap to 13 points with their win over Huddersfield.
