Confirmed Match Officials: Manchester City vs Nottingham Forest

Paul Tierney will take charge of Manchester City versus Nottingham Forest on Wednesday evening.

Manchester City will be looking to extend their unbeaten start to the season in midweek, after an emphatic comeback win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Erling Haaland scored an impressive second-half hat-trick, as the Premier League Champions came back from 2-0 down to beat the Eagles 4-2.

Saturday's victory was the Blues' third of the campaign, with attention quickly turning to Wednesday’s clash with newly promoted Nottingham Forest.

City face the Midlands based club for the first time in over a decade, with the last meeting coming in the FA Cup in 2009.

Ahead of Wednesday, the Premier League have confirmed match officials for the fixture.
