Nottingham Forest vs Tottenham odds
*Odds correct as of 13:30 on December 14
Tottenham finally brought their winless streak to an end last weekend, beating Newcastle 4-1. Before that, Tottenham had failed to win any of their previous five league games, losing four, despite having scored the opening goal in each match. The form saw Tottenham drop from top spot to outside the top four, and now they sit three points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, having to claw back the deficits.
Nottingham Forest, meanwhile, are sliding down the table and Steve Cooper has seen his future once again thrown into doubt. After four straight defeats, including a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Fulham, a fifth consecutive loss reportedly could have been the final nail in Cooper’s managerial coffin. Forest avoided defeat against Wolves, a 1-1 draw, to provide a stay of execution. But Forest are still 16th, only five points clear of the relegation zone.
