Manchester City claimed a 13th straight win in all competitions as they beat Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor.

First-half goals from Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan decided a one-sided game in Lancashire, which saw Pep Guardiola's men go four points clear at the top of the Premier League.

So which players stood out?

✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCE

Raheem Sterling: 8.0

Burnley looked scared of Sterling's combination of pace and trickery from the very first whistle and he deservedly got on the scoresheet.

The Englishman got all three of his shots on target and took seven touches in the hosts' box (a figure only matched by Jesus).

On this form, he is difficult to stop.

BAD PERFORMANCE

Jay Rodriguez: 5.2

With Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes both out, Burnley needed their hometown hero to provide some inspiration in the final third.

Unfortunately, he fell well short in his 77 minutes on the pitch, taking fewer touches than any other starter (21) with just one of those coming in the City box.

Unsurprisingly, he did not get a shot away all night.

STAR MAN

Ilkay Gundogan: 8.8

Gundogan is playing the best football of his Manchester City career this season and was one of the standouts once again this evening.

The Germany international created the only two big chances of the match, one of which was an unmissable low cross for Sterling to score.

He also made five recoveries and completed 94% of his passes.
