Football Predictions

Nottingham Forest take a trip to the Etihad to face the league leaders Manchester City on Saturday.

The visitors have made a bright start to the season but face possibly their toughest game of the entire campaign this weekend away at Pep Guardiola’s City who were involved in Champions League action in midweek and may have to rotate a number of their starting eleven to keep things fresh.


Manchester City wins: 41

Draws: 28

Nottingham Forest wins: 33

Team News

Bernardo Silva picked up a knock in the Champions League win over Red Star to add to Man City injury list, while Jack Grealish, Mateo Kovacic and John Stones are also absent. Summer signings Jeremy Doku and Matheus Nunes, however, have impressed and could feature.

For Forest, Danilo and Serge Aurier missed their draw with Burnley and could duly sit out of the trip to Manchester.

Probable Line-Ups 

Man City XI: Ederson (GK), Walker, Dias, Akanji, Gvardiol, Silva, Rodri, Foden, Haaland, Doku, Álvarez

Forest XI: Turner (GK), Aina, McKenna, Montiel, Worrall, Mangala, Sangaré, Gibbs-White, Awoniyi, Hudson-Odoi, Elanga


City have taken maximum points from their opening five games and are strong favourites to extend that run given Forest’s pitiful away record since winning promotion to the top-flight last year.
