The Newcastle vs Nottm Forest live stream will see the away side make their Premier League return after more than two decades outside of the top flight — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
Newcastle come into this new season still riding the wave of positivity brought about by their Saudi Arabian-backed takeover last October. The Magpies have splashed the cash this summer, acquiring a trio of defensive talent: goalkeeper Nick Pope, left-back Matt Target and highly-rated young center-back Sven Botman. While the club hasn't quite been the extravagant spenders some expected, Newcastle are still primed to improve upon their 11th-placed finish last season.
Nottingham Forest also have a clearly defined goal this season: survival. Having last played in the Premier League in the 1989-99 season, a return to the top flight for the once Champions of Europe was a long time coming.
In order to give themselves the best chance possible of staying up the club have spent around £100m on nearly a dozen players including right-back Neco Williams from Liverpool and striker Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin. The club have also acquired Manchester Utd goalkeeper Dean Henderson on loan to replace the outgoing first-choice stopper Brice Samba and beat a number of clubs to sign Jesse Lingard after he left the Red Devils this summer.
Here's how they line up:
Newcastle: Pope, Trippier, Schar, Joelinton, Wilson, Saint-Maximin, Targett, Almiron, Willock, Burn, Guimaraes
Nottingham Forest: Henderson, Worrall, Williams, Colback, Lingard, O’Brien, Toffolo, Surridge, Niakhate, Johnson, McKenna
