Nottingham Forest meet West Ham today as the newcomers try to recover from a disappointing defeat at Newcastle United on the opening day of the season.
Forest were well beaten by Newcastle despite just a 2-0 result and will need the support of their home crowd if they are to remain in the top flight this season.
The Hammers also met a team that was too good for them as Manchester City and Erling Haaland swept aside David Moyes’ team and they will be looking to kickstart their season with a win over their newly promoted opponents.
Here’s everything you need to know.

What’s new from the team?
Orel Mangala and Taiwo Awoniyi are battling for spots as Steve Cooper considers making changes to the side who were overdubbed from Newcastle at St James’ Park last weekend.
David Moyes said of his West Ham team: “It’s going to be a similar group to last week. Craig Dawson is doing pretty well so we’ll see where he is. Angelo Ogbonna is also working his way back from a cruciate ligament. Lukasz [Fabianski] had a stroke last week and Micky Antonio had a stroke too but he was training today.”
On signings Maxwel Cornet and Gianluca Scamacca, Moyes added: “Yeah, I think they’re ready to go. I think it’s just a decision whether we’re ready to play it yet. They’re getting a lot closer to that, that’s for sure, they’ve been training for a few weeks now.”
Nottingham Forest: Henderson; Worrall, Niakhate, McKenna; Williams, O’Brien, Mangala, Toffolo, Lingard; Awoniyi, Johnson.
