Manchester City were forced to prepare for their Premier League clash with Burnley in the dark after the lights malfunctioned in the away dressing room at Turf Moor.

City tweeted about the issue, posting a picture of a black screen accompanied by the message: “Checking out the scene inside the away dressing room at Turf Moor.”

When Pep Guardiola was carrying out his pre-match interview on Amazon a cheer suggested the problem had been resolved.

A temporary light was brought in by Amazon staff to enable the City players to get changed.

Champions City needed a win from the contest as they sought to make ground on leaders Liverpool, who play Everton on Wednesday.

And Gabriel Jesus set them on their way with a stunning volley in the first-half.
