Preview of Nottingham Forest vs Manchester City, Momentum Takes the Top of the Standings

Jakarta, Beritasatu.com – Manchester City will visit the City Ground, the headquarters of Nottingham Forest in the 2023/2024 Premier League, Sunday (28/4/2024). This is City's momentum to reach the top of the standings in its efforts to defend the Premier League title for the fourth time in a row.

The Gunners, nicknamed Arsenal, will face their city rivals in the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur a few hours before the Nottingham vs City match.
