Paul Merson thinks Leicester City will destroy Nottingham Forest at the King Power Stadium on Monday evening.

The Sportskeeda columnist has been delivering his weekly predictions and feels Forest are in for a hiding

It wouldn’t be a football pundit, without one of them sticking the boot in before yet another Premier League game.

Should Forest lose, it seems likely that the usual suspects will be once again banging the drum that the club signed too many players.

Fans really shouldn’t be surprised at Merson’s prediction, although a scoreline of 3-0 does perhaps seem unlikely.

Forest are looking for a response. The Reds have lost their last two games 3-2 at home to Bournemouth and Fulham.

As a result, fans are getting a little bit anxious and they have every right to feel somewhat frustrated.

Merson doesn’t think anything will change when it comes to Forest’s fortunes during the latest round of matches.

He told Sportskeeda: “Leicester have scored goals consistently in the Premier League. Even if both teams go gung-ho, I don’t see how Nottingham Forest are going to outscore Brendan Rodgers’ side.

“I can’t see anything but a Leicester win here.”

Merson thinks Leicester will destroy Forest

Death, taxes and a pundit backing Forest to lose a game of football in the Premier League.

To be fair to them, Forest have capitulated from winning positions in their last two games and you can see where they are coming from.

Still, Leicester are in dreadful form themselves and this might be a little closer than Merson thinks.

The Reds should get better as the season progresses and at some point, things will probably start to click.

Only time will tell whether Merson is right with his latest Forest prediction.

Steve Cooper is busy looking for a winning formula and perhaps pinning some of these on the dressing room wall is the next strategy to try.
