Nottingham Forest have had a mixed start to their first Premier League season in 23 years, starting with an opening day defeat away at Newcastle, beating West Ham and then drawing against Everton despite opening the scoring in the 81st minute through Brennan Johnson.
Forest now face a Tottenham side who are looking to avoid defeat in their first four games of a Premier League season for just the second time in the last 13 campaigns after 2016/17 under Mauricio Pochettino when they finished second.
Antonio Conte has an impressive record against newly promoted sides as a Premier League manager, winning 13 and drawing three of his 17 games, including four wins out of five as Spurs boss without conceding a single goal. Harry Kane will be looking to add Forest to his list of Premier League sides he has scored against, netting against 30 of the 31 previous sides he has faced in the division.
The Tottenham man scored his 200th Tottenham goal last time out against Wolves and became the highest Premier League scorer for one club, overtaking Sergio Aguero. Kane is just two goals behind Andrew Cole in the all-time top goalscorer charts in the Premier League and can go up to third in the rankings with a hat-trick at the City Ground.
