Manchester City has extended their perfect start in the Premier League season with a 2-0 home win over Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

This is their six win out of six games despite losing midfielder Rodri to a red card early in the second half.

Phil Foden scored the opening goal for City in the seventh minute and striker Erling Haaland was left unmarked to head home the second seven minutes later, as City dominated possession for the opening 45 minutes.

With the win, Manchester City moved five points clear at the top of the Premier League.
