What’s perhaps most promising for Spurs is the fact they are yet to fully convince across a whole game. Surely, performances can only improve as new signings bed in, but to sit unbeaten and having only dropped two points (away at Chelsea no less) is a respectable return.

Forest are somewhat of an unknown quantity this season following such a busy summer on the transfer front, though proved they can harness the energy of a home support by beating West Ham earlier this month.
