Leicester vs Nottingham Forest Match Preview and Team News
Leicester have suffered six straight defeats since starting out with a 2-2 draw versus Brentford, conceding 11 goals in their last couple of losses. However, although they collapsed late on when going down 5-2 at Brighton and 6-2 at Tottenham, City was drawing 2-2 at half-time in both games. The Foxes had previously been edged out by just one goal against Chelsea and Manchester United, while they showed encouraging flashes in an early 4-2 defeat at Arsenal. Rodgers is almost certainly drinking in the last-chance saloon here but couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity to start the fightback. Maddison is one of the few City players to escape criticism so far, having netted three times this term. Youri Tielemans plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Kelechi Iheanacho enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has a problem.
Forest made an encouraging start to life back at this level when recovering from an opening loss at Newcastle to beat West Ham and draw at Everton. The Reds had their limitations exposed when beaten 2-0 on home turf by Tottenham and thrashed 6-0 at Manchester City. However, Steve Cooper will have been left more frustrated by back-to-back 3-2 defeats against Bournemouth and Fulham at the City Ground. After gaining promotion via the play-offs, Forest made 22 summer signings, with Jesse Lingard and Morgan Gibbs-White among the high-profile arrivals. Cooper accepts some of their problems have been self-inflicted and admits the new-look team must gel together soon. Brennan Johnson is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Nottingham Forest coach Steve Cooper to contend with an almost full squad.
