Tottenham Hotspur will seek to prolong their unbeaten start when they visit the City Ground to face Nottingham Forest. The Premier League freshmen have proven they are no pushovers as they bounced back from their first-day defeat to Newcastle with a win over West Ham and a draw with Everton. Can the Tricky Trees delight their fans with another victory? Or is it going to be Tottenham’s first three-pointer on the road?
After salvaging a last-gasp draw at Stamford Bridge in a heated London derby against Chelsea, Spurs faced a stern test of their mettle at home against Wolves. The hosts survived an onslaught of Wolves attacks in the first half and then nicked a winner through Harry Kane in the second half. So, before taking the trip to Nottingham, the Lilywhites find themselves in a comfortable position with seven points to their name in three matches.
Even though their star winger Son Heung-Min is yet to hit the target, Tottenham have blasted seven goals past their opposition goalkeepers. After the third gameweek, only three teams have a better scoring record than the North London outfit. Harry Kane has already started his goal count, having found the back of the net twice. Nottingham Forest have shown good defensive composure over the last two weeks, but they would find it more difficult to tame one of the best frontlines in the division.
Antonio Conte can’t call up Cristian Romero for the Nottingham game as the Argentine defender faces a month-long layoff after sustaining an adductor muscle injury. Oliver Skipp will also be named again on the absentee list as the midfielder nurses a foot injury.
Bookmakers labelled Nottingham Forest as relegation favourites before the start of the season. A 2-0 loss in their inaugural match caused more scepticism over the Forest’s Premier League survival chances. But with a fascinating 2-0 victory over West Ham and a 1-1 draw against Everton, Nottingham Forest are shaping up to be a tricky opponent for all sides.
Nottingham made the City Ground a fortress in the Championship. In 23 home games, they suffered only six losses, won 13, and drew the other four. Of course, the Premier League is a significant jump from Championship, but Forest managed to maintain their strong home form when they beat in their first Premier League home match of the season. Steve Cooper’s side will hope to put another London team to the sword in front of a raucous City Ground crowd on Sunday afternoon.
Nottingham fans might get to see their record signing Morgan Gibbs-White starting the game. The club spent £40 million to secure his services, believing he is the missing piece of the midfield puzzle Steve Copper needs. Jack Colback, Omar Richards, and Moussa Niakhate will not recover from their injury problems before the game.
Nottingham Forest have been impressive lately, but they might not be able to deal with the immense firepower Tottenham have at their disposal. Our top football betting tips experts expect a 3-1 victory for the away side.
