Nottingham Forest vs Manchester City 0-2: Champions Manchester City continue title charge with win at Nottingham Forest

2 minutes read

Manchester City took another step in their bid towards securing their fourth consecutive Premier League title with a hard-fought 2-0 win over relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

Despite some struggles in their performance, Guardiola’s side hit the front after the half-hour when Josko Gvardiol lost his marker Morgan Gibbs-White from Kevin De Bruyne’s corner and got in front of Murillo at the near post to dispatch his third goal in five matches.

Earlier victories by Arsenal in the day had intensified the pressure on City, but they remained composed and resilient throughout the match. Forest, fighting to avoid relegation, displayed commendable effort but were let down by their poor finishing.

The result means that the title is still in Manchester City’s hands due to their game in hand, and whilst you’d expect them to play better than they did today, they still have the champion’s quality of grinding out wins in the run-run.

Despite being just a point above the relegation zone in 17th place, Forest didn’t resemble a team battling relegation. Their performance posed challenges for traveling City fans.

The home team recorded 14 shots compared to City’s 11, with one glaring miss by Chris Wood, who failed to convert a clear opportunity due to his feet tangled up in front of the net.

Forest’s recent form has been dismal, winning only two of their last 15 league games since December 30th.

They were penalized four points last month for breaching the Premier League’s profitability and sustainability rules. They have lodged an appeal against the decision.
