The treble winners will kick off their latest attempt to defend their Premier League crown on the road against Burnley, who were recently promoted and are managed by Manchester City icon Vincent Kompany.

After leading his team to a record number of victories in the Sky Bet Championship, Kompany will make his managerial debut with Manchester City, the club for which he played for 360 games and captained to four Premier League championships. The match will take place in the Premier League.

Burnley was eliminated from the Emirates FA Cup quarterfinals by Manchester City in the previous season's match at the Etihad Stadium. Since 2015, City has not been defeated by the Clarets.

The Sky Blues have defeated Burnley in 15 of their previous 16 matches, but they did lose to Arsenal in the FA Community Shield at Wembley Stadium last weekend on penalties. Despite this, the Sky Blues have won 15 of their previous 16 matches against Burnley.

Due to the fact that both Josko Gvardiol and Mateo Kovacic are Croatian and signed with Manchester City during the summer transfer window, it is possible that the two players may make their Premier League debuts on Friday.

The transfer of Gvardiol from RB Leipzig to Real Madrid cost £77.6 million, while Kovacic joined Real Madrid from Chelsea for an initial fee of £25 million.

The Premier League has revealed who will serve as the match officials for Manchester City's match at Turf Moor, which will take place on the opening day of the season on Friday.

On Friday evening, the match between Manchester City and Burnley will be officiated by Craig Pawson, who has been selected for the assignment.

The official, who is now 44 years old, oversaw 39 matches during the previous season, during which he issued 156 yellow cards and three red cards.

When Pawson was in command of Manchester City for the last time, the Sky Blues earned a 3-1 victory over Brighton at the Etihad Stadium back in October.

In April of 2022, the official served as the referee for the match between Manchester City and Pep Guardiola's team at Turf Moor, which Manchester City won 2-0. Pawson presided over the match.

Assistant Referees Simon Bennett and Steve Meredith will be at Turf Moor to assist Pawson while he is working the match.

Both dugouts, as well as the conduct of their respective managers, Vincent Kompany and Pep Guardiola, will be under the referee's watchful eye during the match.
