The penultimate Premier League game before the international break, West Ham vs Nottm Forest should be a high-energy affair — and you can watch it live from anywhere with a VPN.
The Irons had to battle hard to get their Europa League victory against Olympiakos on Thursday. All that effort and a lack of recovery time will make an already troublesome fixture even more difficult for David Moyes’s side.
By contrast, Nottm Forest have had a full week to recover from their very impressive win against Aston Villa last time out. Odysseas Vlachodimos continues in goal after replacing Matt Turner between the posts and keeping a clean sheet.
Kurt Zouma has been absent in recent weeks but West Ham will be pleased to have their skipper back today. Their opponents have significant injury worries, including forwards Chris Wood and alongside midfielders Danilo and Callum Hudson-Odoi. Striker Divock Origi is back on the bench.
Here's how they line up:
West Ham: Areola, Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson, Alvarez, Ward-Prowse, Kudus, Paqueta, Soucek, Bowen.
Nottm Forest: Vlachodimos, Aina, Niakhate, Murillo, Toffolo, Sangare, Mangala, Dominguez, Gibbs-White, Awoniyi, Elanga.
