Nottingham Forest and West Ham are eager to pick up their first win of the new season when they go head-to-head on Sunday. Newly-promoted Forest got their campaign underway with a 2-0 defeat against an ambitious Newcastle side.

West Ham drew short straw when the fixtures were made up as they had to open the season with a match against reigning champions Manchester City and went down 2-0 through two goals from Erling Haaland.

Nottingham Forest vs West Ham preview

This game will be Nottingham Forest's first home game in the Premier League in 23 years.

They did not get off the the best of starts by losing 2-0 against Newcastle, but will be hoping that playing in front of their own fans will give them a big boost.

Defender Scott McKenna picked up an injury this week and is a doubt for Sunday's match, while Ryan Yates and Steve Cook are not ready to return to action.

West Ham suffered a loss by the same scoreline last week, but will feel it was a defeat that could barely be avoided with Erling Haaland looking to impress in his first league outing for Manchester City.

New signings Gianluca Scamacca and Maxwel Cornet are both available to start this game while Michail Antonio can feature despite suffering a knock against Manchester City.

Nottingham Forest vs West Ham tips and predictions

Both teams want to impress after disappointing results in the first week of the season. Forest have home advantage and will be looking to make a statement, while the Hammers are seen as the stronger side. Backing both teams to score at 4/5 (1.8) looks like a good bet for this game.
