On Sunday, Nottingham Forest and Tottenham will meet at The City Ground in West Bridgford, England. After escaping Stamford Bridge with a controversial draw in Matchweek 2, Spurs claimed three points at home with a 1-0 victory over Wolves.As a result, Tottenham now sits among the top four in the Premier League table at 2-1-0 with a goal differential of +4 after three weeks. Nottingham Forest, fresh off their promotion from the Championship, have also performed well early on with a record of 1-1-1 following their draw with Everton.
Tottenham have scored the fourth most goals in the Premier League at 7, through three weeks, without a contribution yet from the reigning Golden Boot winner, Son Heung-min. Harry Kane has already found the back of the net twice, while Dejan Kulusevski, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Ryan Sessegnon, and Eric Dier have scored one goal a piece. This talented group does not even account for Richarlison, their prize summer transfer from Everton. Forest may put up a solid effort to quiet the Spurs attack, but it will be challenging to contain them fully.
Forest have signed 11 players during the transfer window, including Jesse Lingard, Neco WIlliams, Taiwo Awoniyi, Emmanuel Dennis, and Orel Mangala. However, the most intriguing name might be midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, who Nottingham signed from Wolves for a club record £40 million fee. The 22-year-old has registered just one goal and one assist in 48 EPL appearances over the previous four seasons. Gibbs-White spent last season on loan with Sheffield United in the EFL Championship, where he scored 12 goals and provided 10 assists in 37 outings.
Reunited with coach Steve Cooper, who worked with the midfielder at Swansea, there is hope at Nottingham that the Gibbs-White could bring a much-needed spark to the midfield. He will likely make his Forest debut on Sunday against Tottenham and could be a wild card that impacts the final score. Last season in the Championship, Nottingham Forest posted a 13-4-6 record at home with a +21 goal differential. This success will not translate directly to the Premier League, but Forest did secure a victory against West Ham in their only home match thus far.
