MANCHESTER CITY vs. NOTTINGHAM FOREST: Lineup, matchups and Head-To-Head.

Premier League matchup between Manchester City and Nottingham Forest: preview, lineup, matchups, and how to watch.

On Saturday afternoon, Manchester City will host Nottingham Forest at the Etihad Stadium in an effort to maintain their recent success in the Premier League.

Midweek, Manchester City defeated Serbian team Red Star Belgrade 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium to begin the defense of their UEFA Champions League championship. Despite Osman Bukari’s shock goal giving the visitors the lead at halftime, Manchester City managed to earn three points.

Another second-half comeback was completed by a brace from Julian Alvarez and an outstanding goal from Rodri, after Manchester City also overcame a deficit to defeat West Ham in east London on the previous Saturday.

This weekend, Pep Guardiola’s team will play host to Nottingham Forest at the Etihad Stadium after the visitors’ 1-1 draw with Burnley on Monday.

With seven points from five games, Steve Cooper’s team is in the top half of the standings despite a challenging start to the season that included games against Arsenal, Manchester United, and Chelsea.

Last season, Erling Haaland scored three goals in a 6-0 victory over Nottingham Forest at the Etihad Stadium.

The Norwegian will be looking to score this weekend after a string of missed opportunities during the week.

Even though Bernardo Silva, Mateo Kovacic, John Stones, and Kevin De Bruyne continue to be out injured, Manchester City will be hoping to continue their winning start to the season on Saturday.

Fixture specifics.

At the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City will play Nottingham Forest on Saturday, September 23, with kickoff set for 15:00 BST.

“Team News.”.

Pep Guardiola announced that Bernardo Silva would miss the game due to an injury sustained during Tuesday’s game, and that he could be sidelined for as long as two weeks.

After training toward the end of the week, Jack Grealish might play on Saturday after Guardiola hinted that the Englishman might rejoin the team during the pre-game press conference.

Guardiola did not provide a return date for either of the two injured players, John Stones or Kevin De Bruyne, who are still out.

Mateo Kovacic, who has been absent since missing Croatia’s international break with an injury, is also nearing a comeback.

Head-To-Head.

At the City Ground, Chris Wood’s goal cancelled out Bernardo Silva’s first-half goal, forcing Manchester City to settle for a point after thrashing Nottingham Forest at the Etihad Stadium in August.

Where to Watch.

Due to the 15:00 blackout rule, Saturday’s game will not be broadcast on television in the UK, but BBC Radio Manchester will provide live match commentary.

Kickoff for the game is set for 10:00 a.m. on USA Network for viewers in the US.
