Manchester City take on Nottingham Forest as they welcome them to the Etihad Stadium this Wednesday night hoping to make it back-to-back wins in their title defending campaign. The Sky Blues come into the match on the back of a 4-2 victory against Crystal Palace last weekend, while Forest suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur last Sunday.

The Mancunian giants remain undefeated in the last four league matches but have secured ten points falling short and remaining below Arsenal at the top of the table. Nottingham Forest find themselves in the fourteenth position above Aston Villa having won once in the last four games.

Manchester City

Pep Guardiola would utilise the conventional 4-3-3 formation allowing Kyle Walker to take a rest as Sergio Gomez features again in the left-back position and Joao Cancelo is given the chance to perform in his preferred position on the opposite flank. Riyad Mahrez could take a spot on the bench as Julian Alvarez pushes for a start in this home encounter. Nathan Ake might be available for selection after recovering from a groin injury but Jack Grealish and Kalvin Phillips remain doubtful. Guardiola will be without the services of Aymeric Laporte due to a knee injury.
