Manchester City extended their flawless start to the season with a 2-0 home win over Nottingham Forest despite Rodri red card.
The Spanish midfielder was shown a straight red after the restart for appearing to grasp the neck of Morgan Gibbs-White tangled near the corner flag, with VAR upholding referee Anthony Taylor's decision.
But prior to the incident, City were 2-0 up inside the first 15 minutes.
Phil Foden fired home City's opener with a fine first-time finish in the seventh minute.
The hosts then increased their lead seven minutes later when an unmarked Erling Haaland headed home a Matheus Nunes cross.
Forest, however, struggled to make an impact even after Rodri's red card in second half, with Orel Mangala scooping one shot over and Taiwo Awoniyi firing wide from close range, before Ederson denied Anthony Elanga late on.
In the end, City made it six wins out of six. matching their most successful start to a top-flight season.
Pep Guardiola's side are now five points clear at the top of the table, with the rest of the top four playing on Sunday.
