Tottenham to win from behind

Tottenham have a habit of conceding first on home soil and Aaron Rogan expects that trend to continue against Nottingham Forest, but the hosts should still have enough to win.

Tottenham let two points slip from their grasp in midweek when they drew 1-1 at West Ham. Their Champions League chase continues against Nottingham Forest on Sunday, with Spurs looking a little lax of late.

Spurs have been slow starters at home in recent weeks and they could be caught out by a Forest side who have given a few top sides a scare on the road. 

Team news

Richarlison is set to miss out for Tottenham again, with Ryan Sessegnon and Manor Solomon ruled out. Former Forest man Brennan Johnson is also a doubt for the hosts.

Nottingham Forest will be without Taiwo Awoniyi again, with Nuno Espirito Santo unlikely to divert from the side which beat Fulham in midweek. 

The stats

Nottingham Forest have led in losses at Manchester United and West Ham already this term and they have opened the scoring in 42% of their games to date.

Spurs have conceded in their last 11 home games in the league, but they have won each of their home meetings with the bottom nine.

Tottenham have also scored 68% of their home goals in the second half of matches.

Forest have lost all three league clashes with Spurs since winning promotion back to the top flight.

Tottenham have won seven of their last eight home games in the Premier League and they are fancied to stop fourth-bottom Forest on Sunday. However, the hosts have a bad habit of conceding first at their own ground.

Spurs have let in the first goal in each of their last six at home, winning four of the previous five. They have fallen behind to the likes of Brentford, Crystal Palace and Luton in 2024, before going on to win the game.

This Forest side have lost all six of their away meetings with the top seven so far, but they are a threat. They acquitted themselves well at Arsenal in their season opener, before leading at West Ham and Manchester United.

Forest have beaten Newcastle and Chelsea on the road, while they have scored in 67% of their trips to date. With Spurs conceding in their last 11 home league matches, the visitors should be expected to get a goal.

Spurs have won 2-1 on five separate occasions at home in the Premier League this season and they should be good for a similar win this weekend. However, their stretch of slow starts mixed with a desperate Forest side under former Spurs coach Nuno suggests the visitors could strike first.

Given Spurs’ recent run, they are great value to win having trailed in the game at 5/1.
