Nottingham Forest vs West Ham: Free Predictions & Odds

The Nottingham Forest faithful are bound to create a party atmosphere on Sunday as the City Ground makes its Premier League return. West Ham put in a decent performance against Man City but ended up losing the game 2-0 and will be looking to get their campaign up and running by securing all 3pts against their newly-promoted hosts.

Under 2.5 Goals

We're expecting this game to be tight and tense throughout and that could lead to very few goals being scored. Four of Nottingham Forest's last six outings in all competitions have produced under 2.5 goals, including their 2-0 defeat at Newcastle last weekend. West Ham have seen four of their last five matches produce fewer than three goals, which isn't all that surprising for  David Moyes' side that tend to be strong at the back and economical in front of goal.

Both Teams to Score – No

There is a good chance that we will only see one of these teams score on Sunday, or possibly none at all, as Nottingham Forest have failed to score in three of their last six outings and West Ham haven't found the back of the net in either of their last two matches, going down 2-0 in their own backyard against Man City in their opening game of the season.

Forest hope to get off the mark at home against a strong West Ham side

Nottingham Forest didn't offer all that much going forward away at Newcastle last time out but the visitors did defend really well for the opening 58-minutes. It was in the 58th-minute that Newcastle took a deserved lead through an excellent strike from defender Schar. There only looked like being one winner in this game and once Newcastle took the lead they seem far more relaxed and confident which helped bring about a second goal for Wilson in the 78th-minute, wrapping up a comfortable 2-0 victory.

Nottingham Forest Predicted Lineup: Henderson, McKenna, Toffolo, Niakhaté, Worrall, Williams, Colback, Lingard, O'Brien, Surridge & Johnson

West Ham were certainly up against it at home to the champions but did have chances of their own to take the lad, Antonio heading over the bar from close range. However, the day belonged to Man City's new signing Erling Haaland who was brought down in the West Ham box in the 36th-minute and got up to place the ball into the back of the net from the resulting penalty. In the second half, a nice bit of play from the visitors saw Haaland put through one-on-one and the Norwegian international didn't miss, wrapping up a 2-0 win for Guardiola's men.

West Ham Predicted Lineup: Fabiański, Cresswell, Coufal, Zouma, Johnson, Lanzini, Souček, Rice, Fornals, Antonio & Bowen

Team News
