Manchester City will take on Nottingham Forest up next in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

The Cityzens have maintained a 100 per cent win record this season and have a two-point advantage over second-placed Tottenham in the league standings. Anything less than a win will be a disappointing result for Pep Guardiola's team.

The visitors have not had a great start to the season. They have only managed to win two out of their six games across all competitions. Their most recent outing was a 1-1 draw with Burnley with Callum Hudson-Odoi scoring the equaliser.

Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
