City achieves its sixth successive victory in the English Premier League despite its numerical deficiency


Manchester City maintained its perfect start to the season in the English Premier League with a 2-0 win over its guest Nottingham Forest, thus achieving its sixth successive victory despite midfielder Rodri being sent off after the break.

Phil Foden scored the first goal for the home side and the English Premier League title holders in the seventh minute, and striker Erling Haaland added a goal with a powerful header from a cross pass from Matthews Nunez after another 7 minutes, amid City’s complete control over the first 45 minutes.

The second half began with Rodri receiving a direct red card for assaulting Morgan Gibbs-White, as the two players quarreled, before the Spanish player put his hand on the neck of the Forest striker, who fell to the ground.

In general, referee Anthony Taylor issued 11 yellow cards, in addition to Rodri’s red card, including 7 warnings in the second half.

Forest failed to exploit the advantage in numbers and possession of the game in the second half to create dangerous opportunities, which helped City win until the end, raising its score to 18 points at the top.

City is suffering from a shortage in its ranks due to the successive injuries suffered by the team, the most recent of which is Portuguese Bernardo Silva, who joined the injured list last Tuesday during a match against “Red Star” at the opening of the campaign of the holders of the Champions League title.

City’s injured list includes: Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones, Jack Grealish and Mateo Kovacic.
