Football Predictions

Having struggled for the better part of the last season, Nottingham Forest have started the new campaign brightly and will be hoping to continue with the same outing when they take Nottingham Forest on Monday.

Steve Cooper’s men went into the international hiatus on the back of a 1-0 success over Chelsea, whereas their visitors were put to the sword 5-2 by a merciless Tottenham Hotspur.


Nottingham Forest and Burnley last met in the top flight in the 1970-71 campaign and both matches were won by the home team.

This is their second meeting already this season after the Clarets won a League Cup second-round match 1-0 at the City Ground.

Forest’s only win in their last 10 matches against Burnley in all competitions was a 2-0 home victory in the second tier in December 2012.

Team News

Forest are expected to miss Danilo due to the thigh injury he picked up at Chelsea, while his replacement on the day – match-winner Elanga – returned from Sweden duty with a hamstring issue of his own.

Danilo was not the only casualty of the win over Chelsea, as Serge Aurier limped off the field and joins Elanga on the touch-and-go list, while goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is slowly working his way back from a knee problem.

As for Burnley, Kompany will welcome Anass Zaroury back from his three-game suspension, while Aaron Ramsey (concussion) and Vitinho (knee) have also recovered from their afflictions.

Probable Line-Ups 

Nottingham Forest XI: Turner; Boly, Worrall, McKenna; Montiel, Yates, Mangala, Aina; Gibbs-White, Hudson-Odoi; Awoniyi

Burnley XI: Trafford; Al-Dakhil, O’Shea, Beyer, Roberts; Redmond, Cullen, Berge, Zaroury; Amdouni, Foster


Nottingham Forest will feel like this is a match that they can win owing to the performances they have had in the first games. Burnley, on the other hand, haven’t done well and will need a lot if they are to turn the game in their favor.
