Manchester City and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

City have a perfect record with five wins in five league games but they face a Forest side who are yet to draw a blank in the Premier League, despite facing two of last season’s top four already. City have won their last four games but have conceded in all of those fixtures, so back the champions to win in a game where both teams score.

Manchester City 3-1

Reason for tip

City won the corresponding fixture 6-0 last season but they’re coming into this clash after a midweek European game and Forest are a better side now. Pep Guardiola’s men score on average 2.8 goals per-game and Forest are yet to draw a Premier League blank, so a 3-1 win for the hosts appeals.

Erling Braut Haaland To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Erling Haaland already has seven Premier League goals to his name after just five games and the City striker can add to his haul against Forest.

Manchester City vs Nottingham Forest Predictions

  • Man City have won all five of their Premier League games.
  • City have conceded in each of their last four games.
  • Forest are yet to draw a blank in the league.

City looking to continue perfect start

Manchester City have made a strong start to their Premier League title defence with five wins in as many games, while Nottingham Forest have seven points to show from their five fixtures.

City boss Pep Guardiola could be tempted to make a few changes after their midweek European win over Red Star Belgrade, but even a rotated team should still be too strong for Forest.

Home win and both teams to score appeals

City are the short price favourites to win here so the best option could be backing them to win and concede.

Forest held City to a 1-1 draw when these sides last met in February at the City Ground and they have scored in all five of their Premier League games this term – including in defeats to Arsenal and Manchester United.

Clean sheets have been an issue for the champions as they have conceded in each of their last four games across all competitions and in four of their league outings, so Forest can at least grab a consolation effort.

Forest can keep it respectable

Forest went down 6-0 when they visited this part of Manchester last season but a repeat result looks unlikely. City are coming into this game after a European night, and with a big injury list so a more modest 3-1 win looks a reasonable option here as the hosts have scored 14 goals in five league games, an average of 2.8 per-game.

Erling Haaland failed to get on the scoresheet against Red Star but already has seven goals to his name in the league and the unstoppable Norwegian can add to his tally against Forest on Saturday.
