Manchester City 3 – Burnley 0
Pep Guardiola was able to shuffle his attacking pack and still comfortably watch his Manchester City side beat Burnley on Saturday.

Sergio Aguero started the Premier League match and equalled Manchester City’s all-time goal scoring record of 177 goals with the opener.

This came from the penalty spot and it was the goal that separated Manchester City and Burnley for most of the game.

Manchester City took all three points with further goals from Nicolas Otamendi and Leroy Sane.

Thanks to Manchester United’s surprise defeat to Huddersfield, Pep Guardiola’s side are now five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

And, the question everyone is asking, is who can stop Manchester City?

Burnley pull out one of the great all-time football Tweets
Towards the end of Manchester City’s 3-0 win, Burnley pulled out one of the greatest ever football Tweets.

It features Gabriel Jesus, who had just come on for Sergio Aguero.

The Brazilian striker had a strike saved by Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.

Burnley have been forced to play Pope regularly after Tom Heaton picked up a serious shoulder injury.

Pope has been impressive for Burnley and looks like a very impressive back up goalkeeper.

“Pope saves from Jesus. Amen to that!”
The Tweet in question went viral and in just over an hour has already racked up over 15,000 retweets and over 21,000 likes.

You can expect it to receive plenty more coverage and reaction on Twitter in the coming days.

There have been some fine football related Tweets over the years but this might be the best one so far.

Well played to whoever was Tweeting on the official Burnley account at The Etihad today!
