MANCHESTER CITY

Despite going 2 goals down early in their match against Crystal Palace, Manchester City showed their might by coming back to win the game 4-2. The Citizens remain unbeaten after 4 games (won 3, drew 1) and will be quite confident of notching another win in front of their home fans.

New signing Erling Haaland has taken the Premier League by storm, scoring 6 goals in his first 4 games, including a hattrick in their last game against Crystal Palace. He is set to lead the attack again, but City have plenty of other goalscorers in their midst, including Bernardo Silva, De Bruyne, and Foden.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST

Nottingham Forest tasted their second defeat in 4 league games when they went down 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur in their last match. They face another tricky match away to Manchester City knowing that they will have to put in extra effort in order to get a positive outcome there.

Forest need to improve their attack if they are to get points from their games. They have managed only 2 goals in their last 4 games despite some good investment to bring in center forwards Taiwo Awoniyi and Emmanuel Dennis. In goal, Man United loanee Dean Henderson has been impressive so far, but will it be enough?
