Crystal Palace vs Nottingham Forest Lineups and Last Match

Crystal Palace

The Eagles caused a big upset last time out as they claimed a rare win at Old Trafford against Man Utd. A solitary first-half goal from Andersen proved enough for Hodgson's men to claim a win that not many thought was possible, though, Man Utd have made a poor start to the campaign.  Eze, Ferguson, Olise, Ahamada, Franca, Lerma Tomkins and Henderson are the main injury concerns for the home side this weekend.

Predicted Lineup – Johnstone (GK), Ward, Andersen, Guéhi, Mitchell, Schlupp, Hughes, Eze, Doucouré, Ayew & Mateta

Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest did well to come from a goal and a man down to rescue a point at home to Brentford in their last league game. The first forty-five ended goalless but in the 56th-minute, full-back Niakhate was sent-off for a second bookable offence and moments later, Brentford took the lead. Forest heads did not go down though and a 65th-minute equaliser from Dominguez made the final scoreline 1-1. Felipe, Niakhate (suspended), Danilo, Tavares, Hennessey, Dominguez, Aina and Yates could all miss the trip to the capital this weekend.

Predicted Lineup – Turner (GK), Aurier, Boly, Toffolo, Mangala, Sangaré, Domínguez, Murillo, Awoniyi, Hudson-Odoi & Gibbs-White

Player to Watch: Jean-Philippe Mateta

The big French forward is somewhat of an unsung hero in the Crystal Palace team this season.

Despite not scoring any goals so far and being overshadowed by his fellow countryman Edouard, Mateta has played an important role for Palace this season, chipping in with three assists despite only starting one league game so far.

We will have our eyes on Mateta in this game, even if that is just from the bench, as the French forward has made a big impact in the second half of matches and we have this game down as a tight and tense affair that could go either way.
