Newcastle United were beaten 2-0 at St James’ Park, the last time that Forest played.

Also, some statistics are more relevant than others they say, and one losses for Forest seems very relevant, as they now face a relegation battle. Now they have 0 matches won, 1 games lost and 0 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in nineteenth place, with a total of no points having lost one game.

Forest are missing four players through injury or illness. This will affect Steve Cooper’s selection choices significantly.

West Ham United face his opponents, equal on points, both teams will doubtless be keen to make progress

Returning to match-winning form, following a defeat is always a tough challenge, but that is what The Hammers need now, after their loss to Manchester City at London Stadium.

Also, with an unfortunate The Hammers that has not managed to win in their last League so far, David Moyes’ men form is worryingly poor. The Irons should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. With no points (0W, 1L and 0D), they are established in sixteenth position in the League having lost one game.

It is likely that five key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for David Moyes and his The Hammers team.
