Nottingham Forest vs Aston Villa Lineups

Nottingham Forest vs Aston Villa Preview

Confidence is low at Nottingham Forest, who have lost each of their last three matches in the Premier League. They lost 2-3 against Bournemouth before losing to Fulham by the same scoreline, while Leicester claimed all three points in a 4-0 win on Monday night. It leaves Forest rock bottom in the Premier League table and in need of a positive result to stop the rot.

Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa are unbeaten in their last three matches, which began with a 1-1 draw against Manchester City. Then, they took out Southampton 1-0, followed by a 0-0 draw with Leeds. Aston Villa only have one paltry win to show from the last six away games in the Premier League. In these six matches, they drew one and lost four as well as being outscored by 11 goals to seven. There is pressure growing on Gerrard to turn around the toothless displays that have become common this season, having scored just six goals in the league this season.
