While David Moyes’ side should be favourites for the clash against a newly-promoted team, the prospect of a home game will be hugely exciting for Nottingham Forest.
One of the most iconic grounds in England, Forest’s home form will be key in their survival bid and Steve Cooper must harness its power.
It’s also hard to ignore a certain Jesse Lingard. A big target for Moyes following his successful loan spell in east London, the England international is likely to be in for quite the reception from the away fans.
Here’s how to keep across the game this afternoon.
