After their draw against Luton, Newcastle’s defence will be under pressure. So, how will Eddie Howe line up the Magpies against the Forest team of Nuno Espirito Santo?

Newcastle predicted lineup vs Nottingham Forest – Premier League
Let’s begin this Newcastle predicted lineup vs Nottingham Forest for this Premier League game with the formation that Eddie Howe will pick. He usually plays the 4-3-3 formation. In this Nottingham Forest vs Newcastle game, Eddie Howe will play Martin Dubravka in goal who will look to perform better in this game than his last performance against Luton Town.
So, what about the defence of Newcastle in this game? This is something all Newcastle fans are eager to know as they leaked four goals against Luton, a side battling relegation. Kieran Tripper will start as the right back as he was once again superb against Luton. Fabian Schar will be the first pick for the centre-back position of the Magpies. And, as his partner, Eddie Howe will choose Sven Botman as Lascelles will be on the bench. Although the performance of Dan Burn was worthy of being dropped, Howe will start him instead of Livramento.
Now, let’s talk about the midfield that Eddie Howe will set up against Nottingham Forest. Bruno Guimaraes is a definite starter as he has been the best Newcastle player for some time now. Sean Longstaff got a brace against Luton and he might start as well even though, he needs to improve his game. Lewis Miley, the teenager is a real workhorse in this Newcastle team and he will surely start as Anderson and Joelinton are unavailable.
When it comes to the forward line of the Magpies, Eddie Howe has a concern over the fitness of Gordon who has suffered a knock. Therefore, Harvey Barnes will be getting his first start since returning from injury. As the striker for Newcastle, Iask is still out and thus, Callum Wilson will start once again since his injury. Murphy was horrible against Luton and thus, Miguel Almiron should start on the right for the Magpies.
Newcastle predicted lineup vs Nottingham Forest: (4-3-3) Dubravka, Tripper, Schar, Botman, Burn: Miley, Guimaraes, Longstaff; Barnes, Wilson, Almiron.
