The Nottm Forest vs Aston Villa live stream will see two teams in contrasting veins of form go head-to-head in the Premier League 23/24 — and you can watch it live from anywhere with a VPN.
It's been quite the season for Aston Villa. Unai Emery's side have won seven out of the 10 Premier League games and haven't tasted defeat in the competition since losing away to Liverpool at the start of September. With the Birmingham-based club keeping pace with the league leaders, and their fans dreaming of playing Champions League football next season, Emery will have his eye on another three points today.
The Aston Villa boss has named an unchanged side in his quest to keep this six-game unbeaten run going, meaning Zaniolo and Diaby will flank Ollie Watkins up top. There is one change on the bench, with full-back Alex Moreno returning from injury to replace Tim Iroegbunam.
You have to look much further down the league table to find Nottm Forest. After winning two of their first four games of the season, Steve Cooper's side are now winless in six, leaving them dangerously close to the relegation zone. The Tricky Trees are much harder to beat on home turf, though, and are yet to taste defeat at the City Ground this season. Can they maintain that record when high-flying Villa visit today?
Cooper has made three changes to the side that lost to Liverpool last weekend, with Odysseas Vlachodimos preferred to Matt Turner in goal, and Harry Toffolo and Taiwo Awoniyi replacing Serge Aurier and Willy Boly in a slightly more attacking line-up.
