 Clash of Fortunes: Newcastle United vs. Nottingham Forest

As the festive season brings cheer to football fans around the world, Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest are set to lock horns in a crucial Premier League encounter at St James' Park on December 26, 2023. The stage is set for an intense battle between two teams with varying fortunes in recent form.

Newcastle's Rollercoaster Ride:

Newcastle United, currently sitting at a respectable 7th position in the league, has experienced a rollercoaster of emotions in their recent outings. With a Premier League form line of WWLLWL, the Magpies have displayed both resilience and vulnerability. Manager Eddie Howe faces a selection headache with key players such as Elliot Anderson, Harvey Barnes, Jacob Murphy, Nick Pope, Matt Targett, and Joe Willock ruled out due to injuries. The doubts surrounding the availability of Joelinton, Jamaal Lascelles, Javier Manquillo, and the suspension of Sandro Tonali further add to the challenges for the home team.

Despite the missing faces, Newcastle's recent performances have showcased moments of brilliance, and they will be eager to capitalize on their home advantage to secure three valuable points and climb further up the Premier League ladder.

Forest's Fortunes Under Nuno:

On the other side of the pitch, Nottingham Forest finds themselves in a precarious 17th position. Nuno Espirito Santo, in his inaugural game in charge, witnessed a heartbreaking 3-2 defeat to Bournemouth. The Garibaldi faithful will be hoping for a swift turnaround under their new manager, as they aim to distance themselves from the relegation zone.

Forest's Premier League form of LLLDLL reflects the challenges they've faced, but a change in leadership could bring about a positive shift in their fortunes. The encounter with Newcastle provides an opportunity for Nottingham Forest to prove their mettle and demonstrate that they are capable of competing with the best in the league.

Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Dubravka; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Livramento; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Joelinton; Almiron, Isak, Gordon

Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Turner; Williams, Niakhate, Murillo, Toffolo; Mangala, Yates; Origi, Gibbs-White, Elanga; Wood
