Leicester City v Nottingham Forest live stream and match preview

Looking for a Leicester City v Nottingham Forest live stream? We've got you covered. 

Leicester City host Nottingham Forest on Monday night in a high-stakes battle at the bottom of the Premier League.

The pressure is mounting on Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers after a disastrous start to the season left them rock-bottom at the September international break.

Leicester are yet to pick up their first win of the league campaign after seven rounds, and the visit of struggling Forest is as good an opportunity as they will get to end that streak.

Rodgers’ side have picked up just one point so far and have conceded a league-high 22 goals, 11 of which came in the last two games against Brighton and Tottenham.

They are on a six-match losing run now, having picked up their only point on the opening day against Brentford.

Forest have fared a little better on their return to the top flight, but a return of four points so far leaves them in 19th place.

Steve Cooper’s side are also on a bad run, having lost their last four Premier League games in a row.

But they know that a win at the King Power would lift them out of the relegation zone, above Wolves and Crystal Palace.

Leicester midfielders Wilfried Ndidi and Dennis Praet picked up injuries during the international break but both are in contention to feature on Monday night.

Morgan Gibbs-White is a doubt for Forest, after pulling out of the England Under-21 squad during the break, while Scott McKenna is also nursing an injury.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
