Newcastle didn't manage to enter the new Premier League season in the best possible way, far away from it since they come from two back to back defeats. Even if their defeat against Tottenham in the first round was expected, nobody could be satisfied with a narrow defeat in second round against Huddersfield on the road without a goal scored with a 1:0 result. The Magpies surely did deserve more on the field, but will need to improve a lot in the offense. Only goal scored for Huddersfield was in 50th minute via Mooy, while the overall impression was that the players of Newcastle looked better with the ball to feet - but as said, they'll need to improve in front of opponents goal.
Nottingham Forest, on the other side, started just well for now in Championship, since the side has three victories and just one defeat so far in four rounds - standing currently at fourth position at the table, with three points less than leading duo from Cardiff and Ipswich. The team especially surprised last weekend when they won over Middlesbrough 2:1 at home last Saturday evening. They will be hoping that newly signed midfielder Liam Bridcutt from Leeds can make a debut here, while manager has announced that the team will surely have four to five changes in the lineup for tonight’s cup game.
Newcastle are considered the big favorite here, but with the bad start of the season it’s very possible that coach Benites will play very few first team players, resting them for the important match on Saturday evening. However, the hosts will need to regain some confidence and we hope to witness many goals tonight.
