Manchester City are set to take on Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Saturday in a bid to maintain their position at the top of the Premier League. The visitors are looking to secure back-to-back away victories within the space of three days, while the hosts will be aiming to extend their unbeaten top-flight home run to eight matches.
Man City secured a crucial 3-1 victory over title rivals Arsenal on Wednesday night, taking them to the top of the league on goal difference. The Citizens capitalised on defensive errors from the Gunners to secure the win, with goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish, and Erling Braut Haaland. This victory marks their fourth win in their last five league fixtures, and they will be hoping to continue this momentum against Forest.
Nottingham Forest have been on an impressive five-game unbeaten league run, accumulating 11 points in the process. However, they suffered their first top-flight defeat of 2023 last weekend, losing 2-0 to Fulham. Forest will be looking to bounce back at the City Ground, where they have won five and drawn three of their 11 home matches this season.
While Forest have put together a seven-game unbeaten run at home, they face a daunting task against Man City. Forest have lost their last seven matches against the reigning Premier League champions by an aggregate score of 29-3. The last time these two sides met was in August, where City secured an emphatic 6-0 victory at the Etihad Stadium.
Overall, this promises to be an exciting encounter as Man City looks to maintain their position at the top of the league and Forest aims to extend their impressive unbeaten home run.
