Selections

It’s nice to see Forest back in the big time, and they’ve really thrown some cash at it, bringing in Henderson, Niakhate, Williams, Gibbs-White, Lingard, Kouyate, Freuler, Awoniyi and Dennis, which you’d think would be enough quality to help them avoid relegation. Conte’s also improved the Spurs squad by adding Lenglet, Bissouma, Perisic and Richarlison, who all seem to be settling in well. 

Nottingham Forest’s pre-season was indifferent (W2, D3,L2), and so has their PL start losing in week 1, 2-0 away at Newcastle then they beat a very poor West Ham side 1-0 and last week they draw 1-1 away to Everton so that’s 4 points from 3 games. The Midweeks EFL cup game away at Grimsby saw them come out victorious 0-3 in what could have been a banana skin, but their quality and professionalism saw them comfortably through to the next round.

With Spurs only losing 3 out of the last 20 games and only drawing 4 times, it’s safe to say they’ll be challenging again this year for the Champions League. If the league table started this year, they’d be sitting in the third spot with 48 points. They are in good goal scoring form having netted 25 times in the last 10 games.

H2Hs are few and far between as Forest have spent over 20 years outside of the topflight, meeting only 3 times in cup competitions twice in 2005 where Spurs drew 1-1 at home only to win 0-3 away in the replay. They met again in 2014 when Spurs ran out winners 3-1.


Key stats

* Spurs are unbeaten so far this season

* Forest have faced 47 open play chances 

* Spurs have only lost 3 times in last 20 matches

* Spurs are unbeaten in last 7 PL away games

* Forest have scored in 12 consecutive home games

I feel this will be a tighter game than the odds suggest with Spurs the heavy favourites, it could be squeaky bottom time for anyone on at 4/9, I think it’ll still be a winner though, 1-2 with Son opening the scoring. Spurs will have chances as Forest has faced the most shots from open play in the PL so far.
