First Goalscorer Erling Haaland 9/5 with Betfair

Man City are looking to become just the second team to win three consecutive Premier League titles and they have got the defence of their crown off to a good start. Pep Guardiola’s side remain unbeaten after four matches of the new season, one of five teams yet to taste defeat, but they did look in danger of losing at the weekend.

The Citizens went 2-0 down at home to Crystal Palace but an Erling Haaland hat-trick inspired them to a 4-2 win, lifting them to second behind the perfect Arsenal. It wasn’t the first time Man City have gone two goals down, in fact doing so in four of their past six Premier League matches, including the 3-2 win over Aston Villa that secured the title at the end of last season.

Travelling to the Etihad on the first round of midweek fixtures in the Premier League this season, Nottingham Forest may be slightly disappointed with their start to the new campaign, though optimism will be high. Forest have made an incredible 17 first-team signings over the summer transfer window, with Renan Lodi the latest to join, on loan from Atletico Madrid.

Trying to build a squad fit to fight in the Premier League, Forest are currently 14th after four games with two defeats to their name, losing to Newcastle United on the opening weekend at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. However, they have secured a win on their top-flight return, beating West Ham United while also drawing with Everton.

Man City vs Nottingham Forest match stats

Crystal Palace and Newcastle have shown that Man City’s defence can be got at, scoring five goals between them, but Forest haven’t had the best start in front of goal this season. Steve Cooper’s side have scored two goals in their four Premier League matches so far, with Taiwo Awoniyi and Brennan Johnson finding the net.

With games about to come thick and fast for Man City due to the condensed Champions League group stage, fans are set to be treated to Pep Roulette, and Wednesday’s match could be the first in which we see rotation. That could bring another start for Riyad Mahrez, who was taken off with an hour played against Crystal Palace. Mahrez has managed one shot on target in his 153 minutes on the pitch so far this season but has also made two tackles and will be hoping for a clinical finisher to convert his chances created into assists (creating four so far).
