Leicester City vs Nottingham Forest preview & prediction

Match preview

The two lowest ranked Premier League teams, Nottingham Forest and Leicester City, face off on Monday night at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester City’s awful start to the season features many defeats in their seven games including a 6-2 loss to Tottenham Hotspur, as well as a draw. They have yet to register a win in the 2022-23 Premier League season.

The club owners won’t be wrong in considering replacements for Brendan Rodgers as he’s the most likely coach to get the sack. Moreover, the club’s lack of investment in the transfer market this summer, could be the reason for the delay in their decision to replace him.

Despite being last on the table, the Foxes rank eighth among all English Premier League teams in offensive output but their defending has been disastrous. They’ve given up 22 goals so far through terrible defensive play, despite having scored 10 goals in seven matches.

Despite signing every Tom, Dick and Harry in the summer transfer window, they have failed to provide Forest with the success they desired. Their own shortcomings in the defensive third have caused them to lose many points this season.

It’s no surprise that Forest have the third worst defensive record in the league. They have allowed 17 goals so far, which is the third most of any team in the league. Since the start of the season, Forest have won only one game, a 1-0 victory over West Ham United in the second week. They are currently on a four-game losing streak.

Just three points separate the Blue devils from their Monday opponent. As they prepare to travel to the King Power Stadium, it’s important to note that Steve Coopers’ side have earned a single point from their three away games.

Despite Leicester’s successful attack combined with their poor defensive capabilities, this game definitely has the potential to be dull and a drab 0-0 game.
