Brighton v Nottingham Forest: Premier League – Live | Major league


Key events

“What are Forest’s social media team up to?” muses Matt Doney. “Did I miss the picture of Lingard keeping his chips away from the seagulls? Or was it something more esoteric “Brighton”? Adapt to a donkey in a straw hat? Underpaying for some tat at The Lanes? Smashing The Levellers’ fiddles?’

Imagine if this culture existed in the 1980s. “Brian, there’s no easy way to say this: The social media team is disappointed with your TikTok results.”

“We went to Brighton on Bank Holiday Monday but couldn’t see the brawl between the mods and the rockers, even after seeing Quadrophenia the night before,” says Gordon Pittendree. “What is happening to the country?”

The game is gone.

Pre-match reading

Here’s Will Unwin on Steve Cooper’s search for the S-word.

Team news “Brighton” – “Nottm Forest”.

Adam Lallana replaces Pervis Estupinan in the Brighton line-up, which is likely to mean a switch to a back three.

Forest manager Steve Cooper continues to titrate his new team with three changes from the 1-0 defeat at Wolves. Serge Arier, Ariel Mangala and Jesse Lingard replace Harry Tafolo, Cheikha Kouyate and Emmanuel Denis. Perhaps Lingard is playing as a false nine.

Brighton (Possible 3-4-2-1) Sanchez; Veltman, Dunk, Webster; March, Mac Allister, Caicedo, Trossard; Gross, Lallana; Welbeck.
Subs: Steele, Lampty, van Hecke, Estupinan, Turns, Gilmour, Undav, Sarmiento, Enciso.

Nottingham Forest (Possible 4-3-3) Henderson; Aurier, Cook, McKenna, Williams; Yates, Froyler, Mangala; Johnson, Lingard, Gibbs-White.
Substitutes: Hennessy, Biancone, Worrall, Toffala, Bolly, Kouyate, Avonia, Serridge, Dennis.

“Hold on Rob” says Adam Wilson. “Forest promoted Blackburn to the then (Endsleigh?) ​​Division 1, not the Championship (rebranded in 2004-05)”.

As always, I go to the flyer. Wait until you read my dissertation on the 1970s Coca-Cola Cup Final.


Good evening and welcome to the first part of the midweek treadmill class. It’s exhausting enough observing football these days, such a ruthless schedule, so spare a thought for the soft tissues of those who actually play it. The Premier League’s midweek schedule is almost full, starting with two games tonight: Brighton v Nottingham Forest (kick-off 7.30pm), which we’ll cover in full, and Crystal Palace v Wolves (8.15pm). We’ll have updates on goals from that game at Selhurst Park, provided we have them.

So Brighton v Forest. This game is winnable for both teams. Brighton are chasing their first win under Roberto De Zerbi at the fourth attempt, although they have played reasonably well in all three games so there is no need for Frank de Boer to be trending. Forest would like their first away win in the Major league since May 8, 1999, when they went to Ewood Park and dragged Blackburn to the Championship.

Brighton were homeless back then, playing their home games in Gillingham. They have become a model club, the stability of which all promoted clubs would like to achieve. The forest is no exception.
