PREDICTION AND WINNING ODDS
ABOUT THE MATCH
Manchester City is going head to head with Nottingham Forest starting on 31 Aug 2022 at 18:30 UTC at Etihad Stadium stadium, Manchester city, England. The match is a part of the Premier League.
Man City found themselves 2-0 down in the 21st minute of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Palace, but a brilliant second-half performance from the champions saw them score four times without reply, with Religious Braut Haaland scoring an excellent hat trick for the Citizens.
Pep Guardiola‘s side have now won three and drawn one of their first four matches of the campaign, collecting 10 points in the process, to sit in second position in the table behind Arsenal.
The Citizens beat West Ham United and Bournemouth in their opening two league games before playing out a pulsating 3-3 draw with Newcastle United on August 21; it appeared that the team would be dropping more points against Palace on Saturday, but a brilliant second-half display secured a vital win.
Man City will take on Forest and Aston Villa in their next two league matches before travelling to Sevilla for the opening match of their 2022-23 Champions League campaign on September 6.
Guardiola’s team are once again the favourites in the Premier League, while they will be hoping that the signing of Haaland can fire them towards success in the Champions League.
Head coach Cooper is likely to resist the temptation to make wholesale changes, but there could be a spot in the middle of midfield for Remo Freuler.
Jesse Lingard could potentially drop out of the starting side, meanwhile, with Taiwo Awoniyi an option to play through the middle with support from Morgan Gibbs-White and Brennan Johnson.
Emmanuel Dennis was lively off the bench at the weekend, and the 24-year-old is also pushing for a spot in the starting side in Manchester.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Ake, Dias, Cancelo; Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne; Foden, Haaland, Mahrez
Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Henderson; Worrall, Cook, McKenna; Williams, Yates, Freuler, Toffolo; Johnson, Awoniyi, Gibbs-White
