Man City vs Forest match preview

Against Crystal Palace on Saturday, City showed again just how devastating they are up front.

Having gone two goals down, they blitzed Palace in the second half with an electric display spearheaded by their new number 9, Erling Haaland.

The hat-trick hero now has six goals in four games since arriving in England and you could easily see him adding to that total against Forest at home.

With De Bruyne, Silva and Foden all pulling the strings, you have to worry about facing City right now.

But as their last two matches have shown, they do concede.

Nottingham Forest put on a brave performance against Spurs on Sunday. Despite conceding early they remained in the game until the final ten minutes when Harry Kane wrapped up the win.

Forest look like a team still finding their way, which is unsurprising with so many new summer signings.

If they play open like they did against Spurs, they could get blown away at City. They’ve have to try something different and take any chances that fall their way to get anything from this game.

Man City predicted line-up:

Ederson; Walker, Dias, Ake, Cancelo, Gundogan, Rodri, Bernardo Silva, Foden, Haaland, Grealish
