Team news and rosters

PositionForest roster
Goalkeepers Henderson, Smith, Hennessey
Defenders Biancone, Cook, Worrall, Soh, Williams, Toffolo, Niakhaté, McKenna, Richards
Midfielders Mangala, Colback, Lingard, O'Brien, Cafú, Yates, Kouyaté
Forwards Awoniyi, Surridge, Mighten, Johnson, Lolley, Taylor, Dennis

The big time has finally come knocking once again for Nottingham Forest, former kings of Europe, and they have done it the old-fashioned way. Steve Cooper might not be the hottest managerial ticket in town, but he has crafted a side who graft harder than virtually all of their Premier League brethren - and that could stand them very well.

A double swoop off Manchester United - who might be regretting letting the pair go - in the shape of Jesse Lingard and Dean Henderson has brought some big-match experience to bear, and they will more than fancy their chances in this homecoming match of coming out on top.

Predicted Forest starting XI: Henderson; Worrall, Niakhate, McKenna; Williams, O'Brien, Mangala, Toffolo; Lingard; Awoniyi, Johnson.

PositionWest Ham roster
Goalkeepers Fabiański, Areola, Trott, Randolph
Defenders Johnson, Cresswell, Zouma, Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Aguerd
Midfielders Fornals, Lanzini, Downes, Souček, Coventry, Rice

Forwards

Scamacca, Antonio, Cornet, Bowen, Benrahma

An opening defeat to Manchester City - thanks to an Erling Haaland double - will have frustrated David Moyes, but the former Everton boss will know there is no shame in losing to the Premier League champions straight out of the gate.

A distant alarm bell may ring however if they do not get the better of Forest and old star Lingard, who electrified on a loan move that helped drive them back into Europe in the first place - and the Hammers are still potentially lacking the nous of retired captain Mark Noble.

Predicted West Ham starting XI: Fabianski; Coufal, Johnson, Zouma, Cresswell; Rice, Soucek; Bowen, Lanzini, Fornals; Antonio.
