Everton narrowly avoided relegation last season, surviving in their penultimate match, but any hopes of the Toffees having it any easier this year may have already gone out of the window. In their first full season under Frank Lampard, Everton have not started well, losing both of their opening two matches to sit in the early relegation zone, currently given a 23.80% chance of going down per Opta’s AI-powered season predictions.

On the opening weekend, Everton took on Lampard’s former club Chelsea and went down to a Jorginho penalty, struggling in front of goal without a recognised striker. Those problems showed again at the weekend against Aston Villa as Lampard’s side fell to former midfield rival Steven Gerrard. Fortunately Lampard has no direct links to Nottingham Forest or Steve Cooper, unless you look at the rivalry between Forest and his first job in management Derby County.

Although they lost their opening match, Nottingham Forest will surely say they have enjoyed their return to the Premier League. Cooper’s side were given a tricky opening fixture against Newcastle United and fell to a 2-0 defeat, nothing to be ashamed of considering the powerhouse that Eddie Howe is building.

But Cooper is building a squad to be reckoned with himself, signing no fewer than 16 players with a few more expected to come, and their quality shown through in Nottingham Forest’s second game. Hosting West Ham United at the City Ground, Taiwo Awoniyi’s first Nottingham Forest goal was enough to secure the win, with Dean Henderson also saving a penalty from Declan Rice.

Everton vs Nottingham Forest match stats

Across their two Premier League matches so far, Nottingham Forest have had seven corners in total, at an average of 3.5 per game.

Although Everton did get on the scoresheet against Aston Villa last time out, it was former player Lucas Digne who scored for them. After two games, an Everton player is yet to score a goal in the Premier League, and Lampard’s Derby failed to score in his two Championship games against Nottingham Forest in 2018/19.
