The Nottm Forest vs Brighton live stream sees the hosts look to extend their impressive run of home form and inflict more misery on the visitors, who have failed to win any of their last six Premier League games — and you can watch it live from anywhere with a VPN.
The City Ground has become somewhat of a fortress for Nottm Forest this season, with the club’s home form ensuring that they are well clear of the relegation zone thanks to two wins and three draws from their five league games. An impressive 2-0 win over an in-form Aston Villa earlier this month was a particular highlight, with the Tricky Trees masterfully soaking up pressure and hitting Villa on the counter.
However, Forest will have to cope without powerful striker Taiwo Awoniyi who is set to be sidelined for a number of months through injury. This will have come as good news to the Brighton defence which has looked vulnerable in recent months. The Seagulls have struggled since conceding six to Villa and will be looking for a first league win since September 24.
Manager Roberto de Zerbi will hope his side can tighten up at the back and will be looking for more from his forwards, with Karou Mitoma, Julio Enciso and Danny Welbeck all struggling in recent weeks.
Here's how they line up:
Nottm Forest: Vlachodimos; Toffolo, Murillo, Niakhate, Aina; Mangala, Dominguez; Danilo, Gibbs-White, Elanga; Wood.
Subs: Turner, Williams, Kouyate, Hudson-Odoi, Yates, Aurier, Origi, Montiel, Boly.
Brighton: Verbruggen; Veltman, van Hecke, Dunk, Lamptey; Gross, Gilmour; Adingra, Lallana, Ansu Fati; Ferguson.
Subs: Steele, Hinshelwood, Jackson, Moder, Baleba, Buonanotte, Joao Pedro, Duffus, Baker-Boaitey.
