If everything goes according to plan, Burnley fans will soon be able to celebrate another fine season by sinking prematch pints in a pub bearing their manager's name.

1. City's title stroll stumbles at Turf Moor

This will only go down as the smallest blip in Manchester City's cruise to the title, but they were deservedly pegged back here by an energetic Burnley.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson's late equaliser, cancelling out a marvellous opener from Danilo, earned the hosts a point and although City could point to a number of missed chances -- most glaringly...
