It was an assertive performance but ultimately a frustrating result as we couldn’t make our dominance pay over the 90 minutes.
Bernardo Silva thumped home from 20 yards to open the scoring on 41 minutes.
And it looked like it would only be a matter of time before we doubled our advantage with a host of attacks on the Forest goal.
Aymeric Laporte had a close-range header brilliantly stopped by Keylor Navas while Erling Haaland volleyed against the crossbar and fired over the rebound.

Ilkay Gundogan also had a free-kick tipped over the bar as City eyed an all-important second.
But Chris Wood levelled matters on 84 minutes, ensuring we returned to the Etihad Stadium with one point rather than three.
