Three things we learned from Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest

Manchester City cruised past Nottingham Forest 2-0 to keep up the pressure on leaders Arsenal. 

Josko Gvardiol opened the scoring with a powerful header at the half-hour mark before Erling Haaland came off the bench to seal full points for Pep Guardiola’s side. 

City will now welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday in what is expected to be an easy fixture for them. Football fans can enjoy this match through Premier League live streams

Below we will discuss the three things we learned from Manchester City’s win over Nottingham Forest. 

Erling Haaland showed his quality again

Erling Haaland has failed to replicate his excellent goalscoring form of last season in 2023-24. The Norwegian has come under some criticism this campaign for his poor finishing. 

But Haaland showed his quality again on Sunday as he made a huge impact after coming off the bench in the second-half. 

He scored an excellent goal on 71 minutes after being set up by Kevin De Bruyne, ensuring the Citizens’ win at the City Ground.  

Far from a vintage performance 

There were several outstanding individual performances from City, including from Gosko Gvardiol, Haaland, Kevin de Bruyne and Kyle Walker. 

But it was far from a comfortable victory for the visitors who went close to conceding on several occasions. 

Forest went toe to toe with City and managed to create many excellent scoring opportunities. But their own wastefulness in front of goal meant they failed to score. 

Title race not over 

Manchester City will be crowned Premier League champions if they win all their remaining four matches regardless of all other results. 

But on the back of their recent performance, we are not completely sure they will not drop any points in the remaining fixtures. 

The upcoming contests against Wolves and Fulham look relatively easy for Pep Guardiola’s men, but they will have to be at their best to beat Tottenham Hotspur in North London. 

The final day fixture with West Ham United at the Etihad also has the potential to create some late drama in the title race.
