Players to watch for

Anthony Elanga – Nottingham

Anthony Elanga has been nothing short of important for the Nottingham Forest this season. With his glimpses of brilliance, he has already given three assists and scored three goals for the side. The fans have high expectations from him and it is certain that he will start the game. Elanga’s quick feet and play-making ability in final third might be the key to Nottingham’s attack.

Richarlison – Tottenham

Richarlison has finally found his form in the Premier League! He scored twice in the last matchup and showed his striking finish. He was quite clinical in the game and it is surely the case that he will get his name in the team’s starting lineup.
