Nottingham Forest vs West Ham: Predictions, Kick-off Time, TV, Live Stream, Team News, Results h2h – Preview

David Moyes takes his side to the City Ground in a game the visitors are set to win against Steve Cooper’s heavily modified outfit, after being easily knocked out by reigning champions Manchester City.

As disappointing as Forest were at Newcastle on the opening weekend, they could easily be a different beast in front of their own fans. West Ham are the first to experience a difficult atmosphere in one of the most historic stadiums in English football.

Then there’s Jesse Lingard to consider. A target for Moyes this summer following his successful loan spell at West Ham in 2021, the England international joined Forest instead, a move even Moyes admitted came as a surprise.

A fascinating subplot ahead of a game played in front of raucous home support, here’s everything you need to know about the clash.

Nottingham Forest vs West Ham Prediction

The City Ground factor cannot be overlooked, but Cooper is still trying to get his squad together after such a busy summer window and Forest have offered Newcastle little quality.

For this reason, an away win seems like a reasonable prediction.

West Ham win, 2-1.
