A win would take Spurs into the top four

Tottenham Hotspur will host Nottingham Forest this weekend in an all-important Premier League clash. The North Londoners need to keep pushing to secure the coveted 4th place and a Champions League spot for next season. Manchester United’s recent loss means their main competition now comes from Aston Villa.

Despite a frustrating draw with West Ham, Spurs remain in the Champions League race. Up next, they face Nottingham Forest, managed by their former boss Nuno Espirito Santo. Nuno is also leading the Forest’s fight against relegation with just 8 games left. So, this clash has a lot to offer as both sides have high stakes on the line.

Kick-off:

Sunday: 7th April 2024, 6 PM GMT (10:30 PM IST)

Location: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Form

Tottenham Hotspur (in the Premier League): W-W-L-W-D

Nottingham Forest (in the Premier League): L-L-D-D-W

Players to watch

James Maddison (Spurs)

Tottenham’s attacking midfielder James Maddison is having a stellar debut season in North London, contributing to their top-four push with 4 goals and 7 assists. His creativity and set-piece prowess make him a key player.

Morgan Gibbs-White (Forest)

Arguably one of the top talents in his position, Morgan Gibbs-White is firing on all cylinders as Forest battles for survival in the league. He has registered at least an assist in each of his last 3 appearances. Having handed the MOTM award in the team’s latest win against Fulham, a lot will fall upon his shoulders once again on Sunday.

Match facts

  • Tottenham claimed a 2-0 victory against Nottingham in the reverse fixture this season
  • Forest are winless in the last 5 games on the road (D2 L3)
  • Spurs have come from behind to win five Premier League home matches this season – their most home wins from losing positions in a single season in the competition.

Injury and team news

Tottenham approach the fixture with no new injury worries, although there’s speculation regarding Ange Postecoglou‘s rotation policy following the recent draw against West Ham. Brennan Johnson and Timo Werner are likely to maintain their starting positions after impressive performances, while Micky van de Ven is expected to continue in defence.

Likewise, Nottingham Forest faces Tottenham without fresh injury concerns, but Willy Boly, Nuno Tavares, and Taiwo Awoniyi remain sidelined. Callum Hudson-Odoi, despite limping off against Fulham, is expected to be available for selection. Forest are unlikely to make significant changes after securing three points in their previous match against Fulham.
