Nottingham Forest vs Fulham Preview

The mid-week Premier League fixture of Nottingham Forest vs Fulham holds a significant stature as far as the survival hopes of the hosts are concerned. Forest did manage to snatch a point against Crystal Palace with the help of a second-half Chris Wood goal, but they would be eyeing all three points against Fulham to further consolidate themselves out of relegation worries.

On the other hand, Fulham looked like it had been blown away by a spirited performance by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. The Blades led by 3-1 in a game that surely felt like a definite loss for the Cottagers. However, a late and inspired comeback for the visitors denied Sheffield United a win as the honors were shared by the scoreline of 3-3 at the end.

When talking about the current form, Fulham have won three, drawn one, and lost one out of their last five Premier League fixtures. On the contrary, Nottingham Forest is without a win in their last five outings in the league having lost three and drawn the remaining two games.

Nottingham Forest

Forest’s manager Nuno Espirito Santo would be delighted with the fact that his side managed to grab a point from Crystal Palace. But to stand a chance at winning against the in-form Fulham, he will need to lead out his strongest possible eleven on the day.

Predicted XI: M. Sels (GK), Felipe, Ola Alina, Nico Williams, Felipe, M. Costa dos Santos, R. Yates, I. Sangare, Morgan Gibbs-White, D. Origi, C. Hudson-Odoi, and Chris Wood

Fulham

Despite the temptation of resting some of his players due to the midweek fixture, Fulham manager Marco Silva could opt for starting with the same playing eleven that he fielded against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday. However, he does have a strong portfolio of substitutions available on the bench.

Predicted XI: B. Leno (GK), Tosin Adarabaiyo, A. Robinson, Calvin Bassey, T. Castagne, Joao Palhinha, S. Lukic, Alex Iwobi, Andreas Periera, Willian, and Rodrigo Muniz
