Nottingham Forest vs Leeds Lineups, Match Preview, and Team Information

Nottingham Forest

After Chris Wood joined the club from Newcastle, there was finally another addition to the squad. Defender Ola Aina arrived on a free transfer from the Serie A side Torino. The team still lacks depth, however, as not much has been done to make up for the departures of Jesse Lingard, Andre Ayew, Jack Colback, Cafu, and Lyle Taylor regarding their position on the field. Nottingham Forest broke all kinds of transfer records last summer when they just returned to the Premier League, but this time around they have more of a subtle approach. Gulian Biancone and Steve Cook are doubtful for the match.

Probable lineup: Hennessey, McKenna, Worrall, Toffolo, Aurier, Danilo, Kouyate, Shelvey, Arter, Awoniyi, Wood.

Leeds

There is a different feeling at Leeds these days after the team suffered through relegation last season. The club management is limited in how they spend money or how much of it is available, and there were some transfers away from the club, mostly on loan by players who had a big salary effect on the club's finances. Brenden Aaronson joined Union Berlin, Rasmus Kristensen left for AS Roma and Marc Roca joined Real Betis. There is, however, one arrival at the club, Ethan Ampadu transferred from Chelsea to give the new coach Daniel Farke some options in the back line. Stuart Dallas, Tyler Adams, and Luis Sinisterra are facing injury issues at the moment.

Probable lineup: Meslier, Ampadu, Cooper, Firpo, Hjelde, Shackleton, Gyabi, Harrison, Gnonto, Costa, Bamford.

Player to Watch: Taiwo Awoniyi

One of the most talented players on Nottingham Forest's roster, Taiwo Awoniyi had a good first season in the Premier League after arriving from Union Berlin last summer. Forest fought bravely to survive in the top division and Awoniyi managed to score eleven goals in 30 appearances.

The Nigerian striker could very well outperform himself from his days in Berlin where he got on the scoresheet 25 times in 65 matches. Awoniyi has been capped by the Nigeria national team on six occasions while scoring a single goal. The 25-year-old is an essential member of Nottingham Forest.
