Burnley will be without Michael Obafemi and Hjalmar Ekdal due to injury

Aaron Ramsey and Vitinho are available again, while Anass Zaroury returns from a three-match suspension.

Nottingham Forest will be without Danilo as he was forced to withdraw from the win over Chelsea with a hamstring injury.

Defender Serge Aurier and forward Anthony Elanga are both facing fitness tests due to their respective injury concerns.

Nottingham Forest and Burnley last met in the First Division in the 1970/71 season and both matches were won by the home side.

This is their second meeting this season after the Clarets won a League Cup second round match 1-0 at the City Ground.

Forest’s only win in their last 10 games against Burnley in all competitions was a 2-0 home win in League Two in December 2012.
Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest’s defeat would be their 100th in the Premier League.

They have won two of their four Premier League matches so far this season. Last season, it took until the 15th league match on November 22 to achieve three victories.

Forest are aiming to win five consecutive home games at the highest level for the first time since a run of seven games from April to August 1991 under Brian Clough.

Steve Cooper’s side have scored in their last eleven top-flight games, their longest run since they scored fourteen between February and August 1995.

The only defeat in 17 home Premier League games played on a Monday came against Everton in October 1996.

Taiwo Awoniyi has scored or assisted in each of Forest’s last eight league games.

Burnley want to avoid equaling the club record of five consecutive Premier League defeats, set from May to August 2021.

All three league matches this season were at home and they lost them all by an aggregate score of 11-3.

The Clarets have already equaled the total number of league defeats they suffered by winning the Championship last season.

Their aim is not to lose the first four games of a league season for the third time in their history, following the 1927-28 and 2002-03 seasons. In both cases, they managed to avoid relegation.

Vincent Kompany’s side could become only the second team to concede at least three goals in each of their first four matches of a Premier League season,

emulating West Ham United in the 2010/11 season. The Hammers finished bottom of the table and were relegated.
