The Tricky Trees got off to a bad start on their return to the top flight, as they were comfortably beaten 2-0 at Newcastle.

Things aren’t going to get much easier for Steve Cooper’s men as the Hammers have invested heavily in their squad and have their sights set on a top six spot.

But they were easily beaten by Manchester City at the London Stadium on the opening weekend, so they need a win to kick off their season.

The City Ground is sure to bounce back as Forest fans prepare to welcome plenty of new players to Nottingham after an incredible summer of spending which is not yet over.

Forest have already signed 12 players but talkSPORT understands Emmanuel Dennis and Remo Freuler are close to joining.

New man Jesse Lingard is set to face the side he had so much success with in the second half of the 2020/21 campaign.

Nottingham Forest v West Ham: Team news

Forest will be permanently without Omar Richards as he continues his recovery from a broken leg.

Ryan Yates missed the game last weekend with a knee injury, and it remains to be seen if he recovers.

Cooper must also decide whether to give full debuts to Orel Mangala and Taiwo Awoniyi.

Gulian Biancone was an unused substitute against Newcastle so he will push for a departure.

Meanwhile, West Ham face a problem in the center of defence. Nayef Aguerd is out with an ankle problem, while Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson missed the game against City.

Issa Diop has joined Fulham which means Ben Johnson may have to link up with Kurt Zouma again.

David Moyes must also decide whether to launch Gianluca Scamacca and Flynn Downes after appearing off the bench at the London Stadium.

Maxwel Cornet is also in contention after joining Burnley.

Nottingham Forest v West Ham: What was said?

West Ham manager David Moyes said: “It’s a big challenge.

“Just look at what Fulham did in their first game, what Bournemouth did.

“If you had a choice, you wouldn’t want to face the newly promoted sides towards the first games of the season.”

Nottingham Forest – West Ham: the facts of the match

  • This is the first meeting between Nottingham Forest and West Ham United in any competition since January 2014, when Forest won 5-0 in an FA Cup draw at the City Ground.
  • West Ham have lost just one of their eight Premier League games against Nottingham Forest between 1994 and 1999 (W4 D3), a 1-0 home defeat in January 1997. They are unbeaten in eight top-flight visits to the City Ground, since Brian Clough’s Forest beat them 2-1 in April 1986.
  • West Ham have won 10 of their last 14 Premier League games against promoted sides (D2 L2), their two defeats in this run against Brentford last season.
  • This is Nottingham Forest’s first home game in the Premier League since May 1999, winning 1-0 against Leicester in what was Ron Atkinson’s last game as manager of English football. They won their last seven league games at home last season, the last time in a row between November 2009 and March 2010 (12).
  • It will be Nottingham Forest’s 200th Premier League game – only one of the last 10 teams to reach the milestone have won their 200th game, with Watford beating Huddersfield 3-0 in October 2018.
  • West Ham have won just one of their last eight Premier League games (D2 L5) and are looking to avoid losing three consecutive league games for the first time since June 2020.
  • Nottingham Forest have won 43% of their Premier League games on a Sunday (6/14), their highest win rate on a specific day of the week in the competition.

Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest have faced more shots (23) and shots on target (10) than any other side.
  • This is West Ham boss David Moyes’ 623rd Premier League game as manager, while it is Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper’s second.
