Strong start for Forest

Forest were handed an incredibly difficult start to the Premier League, facing Arsenal, Sheffield Utd, Man Utd and Chelsea in their opening four fixtures. Only the match against newly promoted Sheffield United was at home, with the three against the Premier League establishment all on the road.

To have six points from those four matches is quite an achievement for Steve Cooper. It’s also worth noting that along with the 2-1 win over the Blades and the 1-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Forest was 2-0 up at Old Trafford and had Arsenal hanging on for their 2-1 win on the opening weekend of the season.   

Plenty to ponder for Vincent Kompany

Life back in the Premier League for Burnley has been anything but plain sailing. So far, they have only played three times, thanks to their away fixture at Luton being postponed, and they have lost all three.

In fairness to Vincent Kompany, the three defeats were against Manchester City (3-0), Aston Villa (3-1) and Spurs (5-2). But worryingly for the Clarets, they were all at Turf Moor. And they didn’t just lose the matches, they were thumped. 

Hard to play against isn’t a phrase that you could use to describe Burnley at the moment. They may need to consider a change of approach if they have aspirations of remaining in the top flight for longer than just one season.

Nottingham Forest vs. Burnley Betting Tips 

Fans of Nottingham Forest aren’t used to starting home matches as favourites to win in the Premier League. But on Monday, they are 6/5 in what looks like a game they should win.

But Forest fans are also wise enough to know that this is the sort of match they will go and drop points in. And despite that cynical theory, the statistics tell us that Forest have won their last four fixtures (including last season) at the City Ground. 

Nottingham Forest don’t lose too often here, as Arsenal (1-0), Brighton (3-1), Chelsea (1-1), Liverpool (1-0) and Man City (1-1) can all testify to. Only Chelsea and Manchester City left the City Ground with one point last season, the other three all left with nothing.

Will Burnley switch tactics as they are away from home and have shipped 11 goals in three matches this season? They may do. But if the Clarets do go more defensive, that only invites more pressure from the hosts.

Morgan Gibbs-White has become a pivotal part of this Forest team and is 13/10 to score or assist. The attacking midfielder had an excellent summer and played a leading role in his nation’s UEFA Euro U21 competition win. We feel he is a good value bet to score or assist against Burnley.  

And Forest is 6/5 to win, which is a decent-looking football betting tip in its own right. 

Combined as a Bet Builder, the odds are 2.41/1. This means we would get back £34.10 for a bet of £10.
