‘Obviously the best team in the world’: Newcastle star on Man City

Newcastle United's Dan Burn expresses what many people are thinking about Manchester City right now.

Both sides have made unbeaten starts to their Premier League seasons without conceding a goal, but Burn is well aware of the test Newcastle will face this weekend.

The 30-year-old was part of Newcastle’s 5-0 defeat to City at the Etihad Stadium in May. Raheem Sterling scored twice for Manchester City in that game but has since left to join Premier League rivals Chelsea.

Instead, Burnley and Newcastle will have to contend with City’s summer signing Erling Haaland up front.

After impressing at centre-back against Nottingham Forest, Burn was moved to left-back for the first time for Newcastle at Brighton due to Matt Targett’s minor hamstring injury.

Targett has missed training this week and is a doubt for Sunday’s match, meaning Burn could be deployed in a full-back position once again.

But the 6ft 6in defender welcomes the challenge of testing himself against the Premier League champions.

“City, to me, are the best team in the world,” he admitted. “It will be a good measuring stick to see where we are compared to them.

“That’s where we want to be at some point. Obviously, we don’t know when that will be or how far away, but it’s always a tough test. You want to play against the best players and do well. We have until Sunday now to prepare for it.”
