After a 4-1 defeat to leaders Arsenal at the weekend, Leeds will be hoping his side can get back on track at home against a Nottingham Forest side that sit just one point above them in the table. 

The Whites have picked up four points in their first two home Premier League games under Javier Gracia (W1 D1), only one fewer than they’d won in their previous seven at Elland Road (5) and the Spaniard is looking to become the first Leeds manager to go unbeaten in their first three home top-flight games in charge since Allan Clarke way back in 1980.

Opponents Nottingham Forest, on the other hand,  have struggled on the road in the first season back in the Premier League, picking up the joint-fewest away points (6) and scoring the fewest away goals (4) in the top flight this term. Steve Cooper’s men are winless in their last seven Premier League games (D3 L4), since beating Leeds themselves back in February and another defeat here would see them slip closer to the relegation places. 

If the Tricky Trees do come out on top however, they will complete their first league double over Leeds since 2013-14 in the Championship, and the first in the top-flight since 1995-96.

Leeds vs Nottingham Forest match stats

After being eased back into the side after his injury lay-off, top goalscorer Rodrigo looks ready to return to the starting XI against Forest. The Spaniard has scored 11 times in just 21 Premier League appearances in 2022/23 and despite his injury problems has found the back of the net at least seven more times than any of his teammates this term. Leeds’ number 19 is just two goals short of matching his goals tally from the two previous Premier League seasons combined (13 in 57 appearances) and just needs five more goals to equal his best ever return in a league campaign after finding the back of the net 16 times in 2017/18 for Valencia.

Jack Harrison has been involved in each of Leeds United’s last four Premier League goals at Elland Road (1 goal, 3 assists) and has assisted in his last two home appearances. Only four players have assisted in three consecutive home Premier League appearances for Leeds, with Raphinha the most recent player to do so in May 2021.
