Nottm Forest may have a small cushion between them and the relegation zone but they can’t afford to ease up yet. Man City may have just beaten Arsenal, but that will mean little without a win to follow it up. With uncertainty off the pitch, Man City will be hoping to show there’s no doubt they’re worthy of the Premier League title.

After struggling before the World Cup, Nottm Forest have looked a different team since the break and have won three of their last five league games. Man City looked to be out of the title race just a few weeks ago but Arsenal's stuttering form has seen them close the gap to their rivals. With four wins in the last five, Pep Guardiola’s side is the form team of the division and both confidence and expectations will be high as they travel to the City Ground.

Nottm Forest vs Man City preview

Steve Cooper may have brought in a whole new squad of players this season but they seem to be gelling at just the right time. The 21 summer signings were joined by another eight in January and the likes of former Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas have been impressive since arriving. It is, however, a player who was already at the club that has stood out. Brennan Johnson has scored three of Nottm Forest’s last four goals, so City will need to watch out for him. Even with a squad as big as Steve Cooper has Nottm Forest have selection issues. 10 first-team players are currently out injured, including stars Taiwo Awoniyi and Dean Henderson.  

For Man City, anything other than winning the league will be viewed as a disappointment. Despite being heavy favorites, Erling Haaland scored a hattrick in a 6-0 win at the Etihad earlier this season, the schedule has not been kind to Man City. This match is sandwiched between a feisty encounter with Arsenal on the 15th and a Champions League knockout game with RB Leipzig on the 22nd, so there will be some tired legs in the squad. Pep Guardiola might deem it necessary to rest some of his key players for the Champions League, which could give Forest encouragement. Other than defender John Stones, City have a clean bill of health when it comes to injuries. 

The last time Man City traveled to the City Ground was 2001, so this is a historic meeting between two of England’s biggest clubs, don’t miss the Nottm Forest vs Man City live stream.
