This is a hugely important game for both sides and the Forest players will be desperate to impress their fans, who haven’t seen Premier League football for over two decades.

West Ham will have to be much better than we were on the opening day at home to City and nothing less than a win will do today, if we are to repeat our top seven finishes from the last two seasons.

West Ham lineup vs Nottingham Forest

David Moyes has made one change from the team that lost to Manchester City last weekend with Said Benrahma coming in for Manuel Lanzini.

Steve Cooper earned rave reviews for the football that he got his Nottingham Forest side playing in the Championship last season.

So the home side will definitely not be pushovers.

We’re backing the boys to earn a hard-fought three points in the East Midlands today though.

With temperatures soaring, keeping hold of the ball and making the other team run more will be of paramount importance.

And the West Ham lineup vs Nottingham Forest should have more than enough about it to get the job done this afternoon.
