PL MATCHWEEK 24: NOTTINGHAM FOREST VS. MANCHESTER UNITED The odds are in favor of Manchester City winning, but to increase the payout a little let’s throw in a little parlay.

Manchester City are averaging 6.5 corners per game this season and have 10 total games with 7 or more. It’s likely Manchester City will dominate possession and that the ball will be on Nottingham Forest’s side of the pitch for the majority of the game, I’m predicting quite a few corner kicks for Manchester City.


  • 75% of Nottingham Forest’s points in the Premier League this season have come at home
  • Nottingham Forest are unbeaten at home in their previous 7 Premier League matches
  • 3 of Manchester City’s 4 losses this season have been in away matches
  • Manchester City have beaten Nottingham Forest 7 matches in a row with an aggregate score of 29-

The Word

When these two teams met earlier this season, Manchester City won 6-0, so Manchester City should be a firm favorite in this matchup. The question is by how much? 

Defensive players Scott McKenna and Willy Boly both suffered injuries in Nottingham Forest’s defeat to Fulham and they will join a long list of other Forest injured players on the sidelines.

Taking into account these Forest defensive injury concerns and Manchester City’s attacking quality, the visitors are likely to put an end to Forest’s home unbeaten streak. 

Manchester City managed to score 3 goals against Arsenal with only 36% possession. Just imagine what they are going to do in a game where they are likely to dominate possession.
