Nottingham Forest vs Newcastle Lineups
Nottingham Forest made the trip to the capital to face Tottenham last weekend. Richarlison thought he had put the home side in front early on but the goal was ruled out for offside. However, Kane did score in the 19th-minute to make it 1-0 and England's captain doubled his and his sides' advantage from the penalty spot 10-minutes before the break. In the second half, Son scored a third goal after good work from Richarlison and although Worrall pulled a goal back for Forest in the 81st minute, the game was already over by that point and injury was added to insult in stoppage-time when Ayew missed a penalty.
Boly, McKenna, Awoniyi, Henderson, Kouyate, Biancone, Richards, Hennessey, Wood and Johnson are all injury concerns ahead of the Newcastle game.
Predicted Lineup – Navas (GK), Aurier, Felipe, Worrall, Lodi, Shelvey, Freuler, Lingard, Mangala, Gibbs-White & Johnson

The Magpies would have been expecting a tricky game at home to Wolves and that is just what they got. Despite taking the lead in the 26th-minute through Isak and dominating the opening 45-minutes, Wolves managed to equalise through Hwang in the 70th-minute and Newcastle needed a goal from Almiron 11-minutes from time to rescue a victory.
Joelinton is suspended for this game, while Gordon, Fraser, and Krafth look set to miss out through injury.
Predicted Lineup – Pope (GK), Trippier, Schär, Burn, Botman, Murphy, Willock, Guimarães, Longstaff, Saint-Maximin & Isak
*Lineups are usually announced 1hr before kick-off
Player to Watch: Allan Saint-Maximin
Despite only featuring in 17 games this season and only scoring 1-goal so far, Saint-Maximin has impressed in recent weeks for the Magpies and could prove to be key in Newcastle's hunt for Champions League football this season.
The Frenchman is one of the most skilled dribblers in the Premier League and his ability to tie defenders into knots really gets the crowd going. However, sometimes the crowd favourite lacks a final pass or shot and that can be really frustrating which explains why Eddie Howe has left Saint-Maximin out of the starting eleven at times this season.
However, some of the wingers' recent performances have suggested that he possesses the spark of creativity that this Newcastle side sometimes lacks and with 3-assists to his name, we're backing Saint-Maximin to have another good game this weekend and to feature heavily in the final few games of the season.
