Man City v Nottingham Forest: date, kick off time and how to watch

City are looking to make it two home wins in less than a week

Manchester City welcome newly promoted Nottingham Forest to the Etihad Stadium this week, looking to build on a superb comeback win last time out.

An Erling Haaland hat-trick and a goal from Bernardo Silva helped City on their way to a 4-2 win against Crystal Palace last weekend, having being 2-0 down at one point.

City have dropped just two points so far this season, these coming in the dramatic 3-3 draw away at Newcastle United earlier this month.

Pep Guardiola’s men came from two goals down on this occasion too, showing that they are making a habit of being comeback specialists.

A win against Forest could see City move to the top of the Premier League table depending on how Arsenal get on in their match against Aston Villa.

Forest have had a mixed start to the season, with a win, draw, and two defeats in their opening matches on their return to the top flight.

They have spent big throughout the summer, and will bring a fearless approach to the home of the reigning champions.
