The fiercely fought Premier League relegation battle continues as Nottingham Forest host Southampton.

Forest dropped back into the relegation zone following defeat to Brentford last weekend, but are only behind Leeds on goal difference.

Saints remain rooted to the foot of the table, six points from safety, after a nine-match winless run and they desperately need three points here.

Forest won the first meeting of the season 1-0 at St. Mary’s in January, when Taiwo Awoniyi scored the winner midway through the first half.  

Kick-off is at 8.00pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.

Southampton are without the injured Juan Larios, Mohammed Salisu, Paul Onuachu, Romain Perraud and Valentino Livramento.

VPN guide

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

If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:


ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
