- Despite losing only one of their six Premier League meetings with Burnley (W3 D2 L1), the Citizens have failed to keep a clean sheet against the Clarets.
- Indeed, no side has faced Burnley more in the competition without keeping a clean sheet against them (Hull City also six).
- However, the Citizens have averaged 3.2 goals-per- game across their last 10 league meetings with Burnley, including hitting them for six on two occasions (6-0 March 1999, 6-1 April 2010).
- This is Burnley’s best ever start to a Premier League campaign after eight games (13 points), and their highest return at this stage of a top-flight season since 1973-74 (15 points, adjusted 3pts/win).
- Manchester City have won their last three home league games all by a five-goal margin, with only two teams in the history of English league football winning four in a row by five or more goals – Aston Villa in September 1899 and Everton in November 1931.
- Man City have scored 5+ goals in six league games in 2017 – only Chelsea (7) in 2010 have netted 5+ goals in more Premier League games in a calendar year.
- Man City are the first English top-flight team to score 29 goals in their first eight league games of the season since Everton in 1894-95 (30). The record for most goals scored after nine top-flight games is jointly held by Sunderland in 1892-93 and Blackburn in 1889-90 (40 goals).
- This is the first time that a team managed by Pep Guardiola has scored 29 goals from their opening eight games of the season. Only in 2015-16 (24 pts with Bayern Munich) has Guardiola won more points from the opening eight games of the season than in this campaign with Man City (22).
- Gabriel Jesus has scored 13 goals in his 15 starts in the Premier League – only Mick Quinn (14) and Andrew Cole (15) netted more goals in their first 15 starts in PL history.
- The young Brazilian has also yet to lose in his fledgling Premier League career, going 17 games without defeat (W13 D4 L0). Jens Lehman (47) holds the competition record for going most games unbeaten at the start of his Premier League career.
- Burnley’s Nick Pope has the best save percentage of any Premier League goalkeeper so far this season (91.7%) and has conceded just two goals in his 414 minutes on the pitch in the competition in 2017-18.
