Man City stay perfect despite Rodri red against Forest

 

Manchester City maintained their perfect Premier League record this season with an ill-tempered 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest at the Etihad Stadium.

Goals from Phil Foden and Erling Haaland inside the first quarter of an hour put Pep Guardiola's team in total control before Steve Cooper's side had established any foothold in the game. The home side never quite relinquished their grip despite Rodri being sent off 27 seconds into the second half.

Forest had barely touched the ball when Rodri found Kyle Walker with a delightful pass in behind the flailing Nuno Tavares in the seventh minute and the full-back found Foden with an unselfish cushioned volley. The finish was emphatic, capping a move that featured 46 passes.
