Tottenham’s clash with Nottingham Forest rounds out the Premier League weekend as the hosts chase a Champions League spot. They cross paths with former boss Nuno Espírito Santo on Sunday as he tries to keep Forest in the top flight.

The hosts are heavy favourites to see off one of the worst travelling sides in the Premier League, but Spurs have made life hard for themselves in recent games. Check out our full Tottenham vs Nottingham Forest predictions below for the 18:00 kick-off on Sunday afternoon, live on Sky Sports...

Tottenham vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tips

  • Tottenham to win and both teams to score @ 6/4
  • Heung-Min Son to score anytime @ 9/10

Team News:

Tottenham remain without Richarlison heading into this one, which should see Heung-Min Son lead the line again. The hosts are also missing Ryan Sessegnon and Manor Solomon, with former Forest striker Brennan Johnson also a doubt.

Forest head into this clash having beaten Fulham 3-1 last time out, so they are likely to remain unchanged. Taiwo Awoniyi is ruled out for the visitors, who will also be without Nuno Tavares and Willy Boly.

Tottenham vs Nottingham Forest Odds:

Spurs head into this rare early-Sunday evening kick-off as considerable betting favourites as you can back the north London club at odds of 2/5 to come away with all three points. Forest are 13/2 to cause the upset, with the draw available to back at 4/1 as of the time of writing.

BTTS comes in at 8/13 with goals very much expected as the Over 2.5 is just 2/5, which is very low. Over 3.5 is Even-money.

Tottenham to win and both teams to score @ 6/4

Tottenham head into the weekend nine points clear of Manchester United, so fifth place is looking pretty secure. With the top five likely to get into next season’s Champions League, Spurs are in a good position with eight games left to play.

However, Ange Postecoglou will want to usurp Aston Villa above them and they can go fourth, on goal difference with a game in hand, with a win after Unai Emery’s men were held by Brentford on Saturday.

Spurs have won seven of their last eight home matches in the Premier League, although they have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of them. They have now gone 11 matches without a clean sheet at home, while Forest have seen both teams score in six of their last seven trips.

The visitors have been beaten in all of their visits to the top seven this term, so Spurs should have enough to edge this despite conceding. The hosts have five 2-1 home wins to their name in the Premier League this term, so a repeat of that scoreline is tempting at 7/1.

Heung-Min Son to score anytime @ 9/10

While Tottenham continue to miss Harry Kane’s scoring presence, Son has stepped in to cover up front. He has scored 15 Premier League goals this term and he heads into this contest in form, while he also scored in this fixture last season.

Son has scored in five of his last seven games for club and country, a run that includes strikes in his last two appearances at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Son scored against Luton and Palace to fire them to six crucial points and he can play a key role in another home win on Sunday.

With Son the standout player on this Spurs team, he’s a worthy favourite in the anytime goalscorer market at 9/10.
