Exaggeration: Manchester City player's ugly foul overshadowed victory | Israel Hayom


Highlights: Manchester City beat Nottingham Forest 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium. The game was marred by a red card for defender Rodriquez. The referee will have to decide whether or not to appeal the decision. The match was the first time the two sides had met in the Premier League since 2008. The last time they met was in the Champions League in 2008, when Manchester City won 2-1 at the Estadio Olimpico Nacional. The previous time they played in the league, they won 1-0. The two teams met in a friendly in 2012, when City won 3-1.

Manchester City beat Nottingham Forest 0-2 tonight, goals from Phil Foden (7) and Erling Haaland (14), Pep Guardila's men looked good, but an ugly incident at the start of the second half clouded the joy. Rhodri, the azure midfielder, was seen grabbing Gibbs-White with both hands, who fell onto the pitch soon after.

Due to the nature of the offence, Rodri, described last week by manager Pep Guardiola as the "best midfielder in Europe", is expected to receive a three-match ban for "unsportsmanlike behaviour", meaning the midfielder could miss the intriguing encounter against Arsenal in October, as well as games against Wolves in the league and Newcastle in the League Cup.

Manchester City will have to decide next week whether to appeal the penalty, should it be accepted, but it does not appear that they will do so given the clear pictures and the fact that Hoare's referees approved the red, so the chances of an appeal are slim.
