West Ham United hosts Nottingham Forest in a Premier League fixture that is about as Mid-Table Cup as one can expect. The Hammers get back to winning ways on the continent this week, besting Greek side Olympiacos 1-0 in the UEFA Europa League.
They have really been struggling in the league though, as of late. As for the Tricky Trees, they’ll enter with some positive momentum as well.

They just beat Aston Villa, a side that was flying high entering that clash, enjoying European football this year, and off to a really solid start in the league. Given that Forest entered that fixture on a winless run, it was a rather shocking result. The Irons are substantially backed to win here, so if Forest upsets them here, well, then we’d be talking about back to back surprise results.
Here’s the best lineup that we think David Moyes could select in order to avoid that.
West Ham United Starting XI Prediction vs Nottm Forest
Alphonse Areola; Vladimir Coufal, Nayef Aguerd, Konstantinos Mavropanos, Emerson Palmieri; Edson Alvarez, James Ward-Prowse; Jarrod Bowen, Lucas Paqueta, Mohamed Kudus; Michail Antonio
