Nottingham vs West Ham Match Preview and Prediction

Nottingham vs West Ham: West Ham will be itching to put their agonizing 0–6 loss to local rivals Arsenal behind them as quickly as possible. On Saturday afternoon, they head to the City Ground to play relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest. The bookies view the visitors as minor underdogs. Although their current situation is undoubtedly dire, we disagree with such expectations.

In seven straight games across all competitions, West Ham has failed to win. In the last two league games against Manchester United and Arsenal, they gave up nine goals without making an effort to reply. These days, nothing appears to be going their way. But the visit from Nottingham Forest presents a great chance for the visitors to turn things around.

Nuno Espirito Santo, Nottingham Forest’s new manager, is having a terrible time getting the team into a rhythm. In their last four league games, they have only managed one point. Right now, the Reds are just two points over the red zone. Their most recent setback occurred seven days ago. Nottingham Forest lost to Newcastle 2-1 at home.

Nottingham vs West Ham: Betting Analysis

The home court advantage has played a significant role in this matchup’s history. Thus far, in all but one of the previous nine head-to-head meetings between these rivals, the home team has prevailed. The run includes West Ham’s 3-2 triumph at London Stadium in November of last year.

Eight of the previous nine head-to-head meetings between Nottingham Forest and West Ham ended with three goals or more. In the last four Premier League games, Nottingham Forest have lost three and drawn one. It has taken the Reds 13 league games to maintain a clean sheet. Jarrod Bowen has scored 11 goals so far in the Premier League this season.
