Nottingham Forest play Leeds United today looking to continue their fine Premier League form since the turn of the year.

The Reds need to ensure they stick to a game plan today, with the White earning rave reviews for some of their form this season.

Ahead of today’s game, we’ve looked at a predicted team that Steve Cooper could name at the City Ground.

Predicted Nottingham Forest team to play Leeds

The Forest rearguard

Keylor Navas should get the nod to start in goal after training with his new teammates on Friday for the first time.

There could also be a debut for Felipe who could partner Joe Worrall at centre-back after he remained on the bench in midweek.

At full-back, we don’t see much reason for any chance with Serge Aurier and Renan Lodi both likely to start.

It’s unlikely that Ryan Yates will recover in time to play today so it might be more of the same in midfield today.

Danilo should start in the holding role, with Remo Freuler and Orel Mangala on either side of him this afternoon.

Cheikhou Kouyate also remains sidelined, whilst Lewis O’Brien is now out of the 25-man squad.

Leading the Forest line

Morgan Gibbs-White looks like missing this one, as does Jesse Lingard who was injured in the warm-up at Manchester United in midweek.

Gustavo Scarpa will likely start on the left, with Brennan Johnson on the opposite flank.

Chris Wood is able to return today after missing the Carabao Cup semi-final and he could start against his former club.

Here is how the team could look this afternoon:
