Nottingham Forest face Leicester City tomorrow night and in Jesse Lingard, they have a player who loves to score against the Foxes.
The Reds make the short journey to Leicester looking to end a run of four consecutive defeats.
Forest take on the only team in the Premier League with fewer points than them and they badly need a win.
Lingard signed for Forest back in July. He became a stellar signing for the Reds, penning a one-year contract at the City Ground.
So far, the player has been working hard to reach full fitness and he’s yet to score for Forest since he arrived.
Lingard is quality though. You don’t make over 200 appearances for Manchester United and claim 32 England caps if you can’t play.
As a result, Forest have to be patient with the 29-year-old and perhaps tomorrow night could be his time.
Leicester has proved a fruitful opposition for Lingard, with the player seemingly enjoying some happy memories against the Foxes.
Lingard has scored five goals and registered three assists against Leicester during his career.
His last strikes against the East Midlands outfit came during the 2020/21 campaign when he scored twice in a 3-2 win for West Ham.
Lingard actually spent time on loan with the Foxes as a youngster, making five appearances without scoring.
Lingard loves scoring against Leicester
With doubts over the fitness of Morgan Gibbs-White tomorrow, Lingard could earn a chance to start the game.
Given his impressive record against Leicester, this could be his time and he will be desperate to help Forest improve their form.
The Foxes sit right at the top of the list alongside Arsenal when it comes to Lingard scoring against certain teams.
For whatever reason, he just loves scoring against Leicester and perhaps Steve Cooper should bear that in mind when selecting his team for tomorrow night.
