Tottenham vs Nottingham Forest: Prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h, odds today
A dour few weeks at Spurs requires an injection of life with Liverpool, Newcastle and perhaps even a wildcard like Brighton eyeing up their position in the top four.
With Antonio Conte still in the dugout for Spurs, a win over relegation-fighting Forest is a must even if the atmosphere between the fans, the coach and the club has already turned toxic.

Tottenham vs Nottingham Forest prediction
It is hard to see Spurs players rousing themselves too much for this match given the clear unhappiness of their manager and fans, having been dumped out of two cup competitions in a matter of a few days. Forest will sense that and make it tricky for their hosts.
A 1-1 draw.
