Manchester City faces Nottingham Forrest in a match that they dominate significantly after a great start to the game where Erling Haaland was one of the key players. However, despite the club making a great effort, the second half became complicated for Pep Guardiola's team after an irresponsible action by Rodri, who got into a fight with an opponent and ended up choking him, something that meant his expulsion from the match.


The first was the work of Phil Foden, who debuted in the Premier this season, and came after Rodri broke the entire defense with a great pass behind his back for Walker, who fooled everyone by touching the back first so that his compatriot could shoot also in a single contact. However, minutes later, the Spaniard ended up being expelled from the match due to an argument with Gibbs, which ended in aggression.

In the first half, it didn't take long for City to extend the lead, and without going any further they scored the second goal in the entire history of the Premier League that required the most passes, a total of 46 (only surpassed by one from Chadli with the Tottenham). On this occasion it was Haaland, with a header, who combined a great play in short space between Julián, Foden and Nunes, who was the Norwegian's assistant.



Arsenal receives important news

After Rodri's expulsion, one of the biggest teams to benefit from this is precisely Arsenal FC. The English team faces Manchester City on the next day in a key match for the lead at the start of the Premier League, where Pep Guardiola will not be able to count on his starting midfielder. It should be remembered that the Spanish player has been one of the club's most outstanding players in recent seasons and last season, he was perhaps the best in his position. Last season, Arsenal lost the league by a few points, after losing direct duels with Manchester City.
