Paul Merson states his prediction for Manchester City vs Nottingham Forest

Paul Merson has given his prediction for the upcoming match between Manchester City and Nottingham Forest. 

The two sides are set to face each other in the Premier League matchday 5 on Wednesday. 

Ahead of the game, Merson has shared his thoughts, backing Pep Guardiola's side to beat the rivals with a score of 5 - 0

"Pick a score! I don't know - what score do you wanna go for? I don't think we need to say much about Manchester City and I expect them to win this game comfortably. As for Forest, the worrying thing is that they played quite well against Tottenham but ended up on the losing side," the pundit said, via Sportskeeda.

"Dean Henderson has made more saves than any other Premier League goalkeeper this season and if you look at their transfer policy, they're signing every Tom, Dick and Harry. Is it working, though? It's too early in the season for passing judgements, but Steve Cooper will hope his new players settle in quickly as he looks to find his best starting XI.

"Erling Haaland has taken to the Premier League like a fish to water and has already notched up six goals, but the funny thing is that he's probably only touched the ball like 35 times! If he doesn't get injured, I'd say he's already won the Premier League Golden Boot - we might as well just give it to him now! He's had an unbelievable start to his Manchester City career, fair play to him."
