Nottingham Forest and Tottenham Hotspur will lock horns with each other in the Premier League this week. The match between Steve Cooper’s side and Ange Postecoglou’s team will be held at the City Ground and is scheduled to kick off at 8pm UK time on Friday.

Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest are going through a bad spell at the moment. While the Reds started the season strongly, things have slowed down for them now and they are in real danger of getting relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season.

Forest are 16th in the Premier League table at the moment with 14 points from 16 matches. The Reds are five points above the relegation zone. Sheffield United, Burnley, Luton Town and Everton are the four clubs below them in the standings.

Steve Cooper’s side will head into the Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur at the City Ground on the back of a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers away from home in the league. It came after a 5-0 hammering at the hands of Fulham away from home at Craven Cottage in London in the Premier League.

Team News:

Nottingham Forest are likely to line up in a 3-5-2 formation. Matt Turner will be in goal for the visiting team. Willy Boly, Murillo and Moussa Niakhate will be the three defenders. Ryan Yates, Orel Mangala and Cheikhou Kouyate will be the three midfielders. Neco Williams and Harry Toffolo will be the two wingers. Anthony Elanga and Morgan Gibbs-White will be the two forwards.

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur started the season so strongly that there were suggestions that they could challenge for the Premier League title. Things have slowed down in recent times, but the North London club remain in the hunt for a UEFA Champions League place.

Spurs are fifth in the Premier League table at the moment with 30 points from 16 matches. They are three points behind defending champions Manchester City and are seven points behind leaders Liverpool. Manchester United and Newcastle United are among the clubs who are below Spurs in the league table.

Tottenham will head into the Premier League match against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground this week on the back of a 4-1 victory over Newcastle United at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the league. It came after a 2-1 loss at the hands of West Ham United in the London derby which followed a 3-3 draw with Manchester City away from home at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League.

Team News:

Tottenham Hotspur are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Guglielmo Vicario will be in goal for the home team. Pedro Porro, Cristian Romero, Ben Davies and Destiny Udogie will be the four defenders. Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma will be the two holding midfielders. Brennan Johnson, Dejan Kulusevski and Son Heung-min will be the three attacking midfielders. Richarlison will lead the line for Spurs.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Nottingham Forest have won 3 out of 16 Premier League matches this season.
  • Nottingham Forest have conceded 28 goals in 16 Premier League matches this season.
  • Tottenham Hotspur have scored 33 goals in 16 Premier League games in this campaign.
  • Tottenham Hotspur have lost 4 of their last 6 Premier League games.
  • Son Heung-min has scored 10 goals and given 4 assists in 16 Premier League matches for Tottenham Hotspur this season.

Conclusion

Tottenham Hotspur have the better team than Nottingham Forest and should be able to pick up all three points at the City Ground this week. Although Forest are the home team and drew their last league game, it is hard to see them beat a Spurs team who are playing very attacking football.
