Forest (opens in new tab) booked their place in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup on Wednesday, and they have also boosted their Premier League survival chances in recent weeks.

Steve Cooper's side head into this East Midlands derby two points above the bottom three.

Leicester (opens in new tab) are above Forest in the table but the rivals are level on points, with the Foxes not out of relegation trouble yet.

Kick-off is at 3pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League (opens in new tab) wherever you are.

Team news

Forest are without Willy Boly, Jesse Lingard, Moussa Niakhate, Omar Richards, Giulian Biancone and Cheikhou Kouyate. Taiwo Awoniyi also misses out, but Neco Williams is among the substitutes after a knock.

Leicester are unable to call upon the services of James Justin, Ricardo Pereira, Boubakary Soumare, Jonny Evans, James Maddison, Ryan Bertrand and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall. Ayoze Perez also misses out, but Dennis Praet is on the bench after passing a late fitness test.

Nottingham Forest XI: Henderson; Aurier, Worrall, McKenna, Renan Lodi; Yates, Freuler, Mangala; Gustavo Scarpa; Johnson, Gibbs-White.

Leicester City XI: Ward; Castagne, Amartey, Faes, Thomas; Ndidi, Mendy; Albrighton, Tielemans, Barnes; Vardy.


Forest have lost just one of their last five games in the Premier League, climbing outside the bottom three in the process.

Leicester have lost four of their last five matches in all competitions - the exception was a slender and unconvincing 1-0 victory over Gillingham in the FA Cup.

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 (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
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!
