Manchester City made it six wins and a maximum 18 points from six games after defeating visiting Nottingham Forest 2-0 courtesy of first half goals from Phil Foden and Erling Haaland.
Foden lashed on to a pass from Walker on the right side of the pitch to tuck in neatly City’s first goal in the 7th minute of the encounter to put the home side 1-0 up.
Seven minute after, precisely in the 14th minute, newly acquired Portuguese Midfielder, Nunez sent a cross from the right side of the pitch and prolific Striker, Haaland connected to the cross with a header for the Citizens second goal.
Haaland leads the scorers chart with eight goals from 6 games.
In the second half Rodri was sent off but Nottingham were still unable to open the scoring.
Rodri was given his marching orders by referee Anthony Taylor for pushing Morgan Gibbs-White to the ground a few moments after the Nottingham Forest midfielder had tackled him. Gibbs-White went to ground quite theatrically after being shoved in the throat.
Rodri’s dismissal means he’ll be suspended for Manchester City’s match against, Newcastle, Wolves and Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
Elsewhere, Newly promoted Luton Town came from behind against 10-man Wolves to get their first point of the campaign on the board courtesy of a Carlton Morris penalty.
Nigerian born, Chiedozie Ogbene thought he’d scored a late winner for Luton after turning the ball past Jose Sa but his celebrations are cut short by a raised offside flag.
Crystal Palace and Fulham ended it on a gaolless affair after all efforts to score in the match proved abortive for both sides.
Although, Palace had a penalty shout late in the game, referee Paul Tierney disagreed with the home side.
