Nottingham Forest conceded seven goals in the previous three league fixtures

Nottingham Forest and Manchester City will drop the curtain on Matchday No 35 on Sunday afternoon at The City Ground. Nottingham’s top-flight survival ambitions suffered another setback last weekend in a 0-2 defeat at Everton. They are just one point above Luton in the drop zone. Getting salvation points against title challengers is quite a tricky task, though.

Nottingham Forest conceded seven goals in the previous three league fixtures. Manchester City bagged at least four goals in three consecutive outings going into mid-week’s tie with Brighton.

The Reds have not kept a clean sheet in ten straight outings across competitions.

Nottingham Forest have been in sort of a crisis over the last several weeks. They’ve managed just one point from the previous three league affairs.

In their defence, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men by no means looked poor in the last weekend’s 0-2 defeat at Everton. They created numerous chances and probably should have been given at least a couple of penalties.

After the Champions League elimination at the hands of Real Madrid, Manchester City advanced to the FA Cup semi-final by beating Chelsea 1-0 last Saturday at Wembley. Bernardo Silva made the difference in a rather surprisingly quiet game for the Citizens from the attacking perspective.

Nottingham Forest vs Manchester City Head-to-head
Manchester City picked up a 2-0 victory in the reverse game played in September last year at Etihad Stadium.

The Citizens have five wins, two draws, and a loss in the last eight clashes against the Reds.

We did not see three or more goals in either of the previous two H2H affairs between these rivals.

Manchester City possess much more quality in their ranks. Erling Haaland missed mid-week’s clash with Brighton but Pep Guardiola still possesses enough quality in his ranks. They have a star-studded lineup capable of exploiting Nottingham Forest’s defensive woes.
