Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will go up against each other at Stamford Bridge in the 16:30 Premier League clash on Sunday, while the earlier 14:00 contest will see West Ham travel to Nottingham Forest.
The last time Forest hosted a Premier League game was way back in May 1999. To put that into context, Tony Blair was the Prime Minister and The Backstreet Boys were top of the singles charts with ‘I Want It That Way’.
Steve Cooper’s men will be hoping for an improved performance from the 2-0 defeat suffered at Newcastle United on the opening weekend, a loss in which the visitors failed to land a single shot on target.
Forest certainly haven’t been shy in the current transfer window and they added Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis and former Crystal Palace midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate to their ranks on Saturday evening – making it 14 new additions this summer.
Neither of those two will be involved and there is also a serious doubt over the participation of defender Scott McKenna, who sustained an injury in training, while Ryan Yates and Steve Cook are not yet ready to return.
West Ham also went down 2-0 in their opening match, although that was against Manchester City, and David Moyes will be eager for a more front-foot approach from his side.
The Hammers have only lost two of the last 21 league fixtures against Forest, while the Irons have won 10 of their past 14 PL games against promoted sides.
Summer signings Maxwel Cornet and Gianluca Scamacca could be handed starts, while Michail Antonio has overcome the minor issue he suffered against City last week but Lukasz Fabianski is a doubt.
After that contest at the City Ground, there is a huge meeting between Chelsea and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge at 16:30 (Chelsea 5/4, Draw 5/2, Tottenham 23/10 – Match Betting).
The Blues kicked off with a 1-0 victory over Everton – Jorginho grabbing the only goal from the spot – while Spurs came from 1-0 down to thrash Southampton 4-1.
German tactician Thomas Tuchel will be looking to extend his perfect record against Tottenham, having won all five of his meetings with the North London outfit since taking charge of Chelsea.
The hosts are without Mateo Kovacic because of a knee injury and Marcos Alonso, who is closing in on a move to Barcelona, while Spurs are missing Clement Lenglet and Oliver Skipp.
Summer signing Richarlison could be handed his Tottenham debut after completing his suspension and he is 8/1 to open the scoring.
