Hello and welcome to our coverage of today's Premier League clash between Manchester City and Burnley, live from the Etihad Stadium.
1'
KICK OFF: We're underway!
2'
A change of pace from Mahrez catches out Taylor and the full back is forced to pull the winger back, handing City an early free kick.
3'
Mahrez whips the ball into the Burnley box where Tarkowski rises highest to head clear!
5'
Chance! Gundogan slips the ball into the feet of Torres on the edge of the Burnley penalty area. The forward has space to get a shot away, but the ball flashes over the crossbar.
6'
GOAL! Mahrez! That didn't take long. Burnley lose possession in the middle of the park and City quickly work the ball forward with a number of first time passes. Eventually De Bruyne plays in Mahrez, who finishes clinically past Peacock-Farrell to give his side the perfect start.
10'
Mahrez is in behind again and he looks to head the ball into the path of Jesus. However, he doesn't make a good connection with the header, allowing Burnley to clear.
12'
Torres plays the ball forward in search of De Bruyne, but Mee and Tarkowski spot the danger, shielding the ball back to Peacock-Farrell.
14'
Mee hits the ball long in search of Wood, but Stones reads it well, rising highest to head clear.
16'
Chance! Gundogan almost picks out the run of Torres, but Tarkowski slides in to make a crucial interception.
18'
No penalty! Stones's shot takes a deflection and hits the arm of a Burnley defender in the penalty area. There are halfhearted appeals for a penalty from City, but the referee rightly waves them away and allows play to continue.
22'
GOAL! Simple as you like for City and Mahrez. He sneaks in behind Taylor and Mee to pick up Walker's throw in and cuts inside two challenges before curling a shot in off the far post. It's an excellent finish but a really poor goal to concede if you are Burnley.
24'
Burnley now face a mountain to climb! Gundogan's the latest to get a shot away, but he strikes the ball high over the crossbar form 25 yards.
25'
De Bruyne looks to cross from the right flank, but it almost catches Peacock-Farrell out. The goalkeeper has to back pedal and tip the ball over the crossbar.
27'
NO GOAL! Jesus' header creeps into the far corner, but the flag goes up for offside. It's an incredible spot from the assistant referee, who raises his flag after the ball comes off Torres, who is in an offside position. It's a really good call and it spares the blushes of Peacock-Farrell.
30'
Burnley cannot get anything going in forward areas. They are struggling to get the ball of City at the moment.
33'
So far, so good for Manchester City and Riyad Mahrez.
35'
Mee goes long again to try and get Burnley up the pitch, but City are able to clear easily.
37'
A chance for Burnely from a free-kick. The ball is clipped into the City penalty area, but Gundogan does well to get his head to the ball ahead of Mee.
38'
Block! Taylor gets a cross in from the left and Barnes gets his head to it. He gets an effort in on goal, but Mendy manages to make the block.
41'
GOAL! More scintillating stuff from City, who extend their advantage before the break. De Bruyne pulls away to the right before curling the ball to the back post for Mendy. The full-back then produces an exquisite finish, volleying with his side-footing back across goal and into the far corner.
45'
Two minutes of added time to be played.
46'
Substitution: City make a half-time change. Fernandinho replaces Rodri.
46'
SECOND HALF: We're back underway!
47'
HALF TIME: Manchester City are in cruise control at the Etihad Stadium! They are back in the goals, leading 3-0 after Riyad Mahrez's double and Benjamin Mendy's volley.
48'
The ball is rolled into the path of Mahrez, who is on a hat-trick. He goes for a first time shot, but leaning back, he strikes the ball over the crossbar.
50'
Westwood stands the ball up to the far post, but Fernandinho eases Tarkowski out of the way as the defender tries to get a header in on goal.
52'
De Bruyne drives to the edge of the Burnley penalty area before slicing a left-footed shot wide of the target.
53'
McNeil tries his luck from distance as Burnley look for a way back into the game, but the winger fails to test Ederson, who watches the ball sails safely over his crossbar.
56'
Chance! De Bruyne slips the ball to Mahrez in acres of space. The cut back takes a deflection and Dias manages to get his head to the ball. He loops a header towards goal and Stones attacks the ball, but he's adjudged to have fouled the goalkeeper.
60'
Save! Rodriguez's touch takes him away from the defender and he hammers the ball towards goal. Ederson stays big and beats the ball away from goal.
61'
Burnley have a free kick right on the edge of the City box. Benson attempts to lift the ball over the wall, but it takes a deflection and drifts inches wide of the upright.
63'
There will be a pause in play as Tarkowski gets treatment in the City penalty area. It looks like he's taken a knock to the head from Ederson, who was punching the ball clear.
66'
GOAL! Torres make it 4! Walker's cut back picks out Jesus, who in turn rolls the ball into the path of Torres, who makes no mistake with his finish! It's another great team goal for Pep Guardiola's side.
68'
Substitution: That's Torres' final act as he's replaced by Foden.
69'
Substitution: A Change for Burnley too as Pieters replaces Wood.
70'
GOAL! Mahrez hat-trick! The hosts cut Burnley open once again as Foden is released on the left. He has a quick glance up before whipping the ball to the far post, and Mahrez powers a header into the back of the net!
73'
Wide! A good effort from Barnes, who attempts to pick out the far corner with a curling effort. However, the ball just drifts wide of the far post.
75'
GOAL! This is getting brutal. It's SIX for City! A disaster own goal from Peacock-Farrell. He makes a superb save to deny Jesus at point-blank range, but the ball bounces off his right knee before creeping into the net.
76'
Hang on... VAR is taking a look. The goal may not stand.
77'
NO GOAL! Jesus just crept into an offside position in the build-up to the goal. Peacock-Farrell's blushes are spared!
80'
Mahrez tries to turn provider but Fernandinho heads his cross over the crossbar!
82'
Substitution: Another change for Burnley as Vydra replaces Barnes.
84'
Chance! The ball falls kindly for McNeil, but the winger's strike is wild and the ball sails high over the crossbar.
87'
Rodriguez eases Dias out the way as he attempts to get a shot away, but the referee's whistle sounds. The Burnley forward is adjudged to have fouled the City defender.
90'
Mahrez slips the ball into the path of De Bruyne and the Belgium international hammers to the ball towards the far corner. The strike beats Peacock-Farrell, but the ball crashes back off the upright.
91'
We're into the first of three added minutes.
93'
FULL TIME: A brilliant day for Man City and one to quickly forget for Burnley. A hat-trick from Riyad Mahrez and goals from Benjamin Mendy and Ferran Torres means Pep Guardiola's side are now six points behind league leaders Liverpool with a game in hand.
