Nottingham Forest vs Brighton Lineups and Last Match

Nottm Forest

Steve Cooper's men made the trip to the capital before the international break to take on West Ham, where the two sides played out a five-goal thriller. Despite an early setback, Notting Forest took a 2-1 lead in this match thanks to a goal from Awoniyi late in the first half and another from Elanga just after the hour mark but West Ham got back onto level terms soon after and went on to carve out a winner late on. Hudson-Odoi has been ruled out until early December with a thigh injury but Murillo, Felipe and Montiel are expected to be available for selection this weekend.

Predicted Lineup – Vlachodimos (GK), Aina, Toffolo, Niakhaté, Murillo, Mangala, Sangaré, Gibbs-White, Domínguez, Awoniyi & Elanga

Brighton

The Seagulls got off to a perfect start at home to struggling Sheff Utd last time out when after just six minutes, Adingra fired the hosts in front. However, Brighton once again failed to take advantage while they were on top in a match and ended up suffering for it as Dahoud picked up a straight red card in the sixty-ninth minute and shortly after that, Webster put through his own goal and the scoreline ended in a 1-1 draw. Brighton could be without some key players this weekend as Welbeck, March, Espinola, Lamptey, Estupinan, Milner, Dunk and Ferguson are all dealing with injuries and while some could pass late fitness tests, Dahoud will miss the game through suspension.

Predicted Lineup – Steele (GK), Webster, Julio, van Hecke, Lallana, Groß, Mitoma, Gilmour, Buonanotte, Fati & Adingra

Player to Watch: Anthony Elanga

Nottingham Forest's young Swedish winger has started to find his feet in the Premier League and a regular run in the first team has no doubt helped the pacey wideman with his consistency.

The 21-year-old has chipped in with two goals and three assists in the Premier League this season making him a key player for Nottingham Forest in their attempts to avoid a relegation battle.

Brighton's defence hasn't been at its best in the Premier League of late and we expect Elanga to cause the visitors a few problems this weekend with his pave and movement from wide positions, and that's why we will be keeping a keen eye on the Swede.
