Manchester City were held to a 1-1 draw by Nottingham Forest at the City Ground Stadium in the English Premier League on Saturday.

City missed another opportunity to move closer to league leaders, opening a potential seven point lead margin for Arsenal.

Nottingham Forest gave City a run for their money, sharing points with star-studded Pep Guardiola’s side. 

Silva gave City the lead in the 41st minute, leaving the home side go one goal down into first half break.

Nottingham Forest, however, returned into the second half, fought their way back into the game.

Wood’s 84th minute goal saved the day for Forest, setting City back in their chase for the title this season.

City are now behind Arsenal with 52 points in 24 games.

Arsenal now have the opportunity to open a seven point lead if they win their pending game.
