Nottingham Forest vs Tottenham Hotspur: How to watch on TV, live stream, kick-off time, team news

Tottenham Hotspur return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon as they take on the newly promoted Nottingham Forest in the final match of the weekend.

Spurs will look to build on their strong start to the campaign after collecting seven points out of a possible nine with two wins and a draw in their opening three games.

On the first weekend, Antonio Conte’s men swept aside Southampton 4-1 on home soil, and they’ve since drawn 2-2 away at Chelsea and beaten Wolves 1-0.

Nottingham Forest meanwhile have enjoyed a decent return to the top flight so far as they’ve won one, drawn one and lost one, picking up four points.

Last time out Forest held Everton to a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park and the week before they managed a surprise 1-0 win over West Ham.

Only Barcelona and Chelsea have spent more money than Forest this summer, and many of their new recruits could make a debut this weekend. Spurs will have to be at their best to earn a positive result.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Nottingham Forest vs Tottenham, including all the latest team news, when the match kicks off, how to watch it on TV, and how to sign up to Sky Sports.

What is the team news for Nottingham Forest vs Tottenham Hotspur?

Tottenham have four players close to returning from injury ahead of Sunday’s fixture, and they’re all set to face late fitness tests to determine their availability.

Midfielder Oliver Skipp, who hasn’t featured at all so far this season, has been back in training this week. Key player Cristian Romero is recovering well but is unlikely to feature after picking up a knock against Chelsea two weeks ago.

Attacking duo Lucas Moura and Bryan Gil both have knocks, with the latter facing a potential loan move abroad.

Forest meanwhile have three players ruled out, two of which are summer signings to reinforce their defence.

Centre back Moussa Niakhate (hamstring) is set for a few months on the sidelines, whereas wing-back Omar Richards (calf) will be back in a few weeks. Jack Colback was ‘hit for six’ with illness last week and is unlikely to play.
