Nottm Forest 1-1 Man City: Chris Wood salvages draw to keep Arsenal on top of Premier League

Chris Wood cancelled out Bernardo Silva’s opening goal as Nottingham Forest picked up an impressive 1-1 draw against Manchester City.

City made one change for their visit to the City Ground.

Phil Foden came in for Riyad Mahrez in the only alteration from the side that started Wednesday’s 3-1 win at Arsenal.

Forest lost their appeal to the Premier League to add Steve Cook to their 25-man squad following a spate of defensive injuries, which leaves Joe Worrall and Felipe as their only fit central defenders.

Felipe and Jonjo Shelvey made their full and home debuts.

City took the lead in style five minutes before the break, having been on top.

Jack Grealish recycled a corner and he teed up Bernardo Silva who unleashed an unstoppable swerving drive from the edge of the area that was too good for Keylor Navas.

That proved to be the only goal of the first half as City went in 1-0 to the good.

City had wasted a host of chances to make it 2-0, with Erling Haaland missing two sitters, and they were made to pay in the 84th minute as Chris Wood levelled.

A fine move down the right saw Morgan Gibbs-White cross for Wood and he scored his first Forest goal by tapping in at the far post.
