Last season's performance

Promoted back to the Premier League for the first time in 23 years following victory in the Championship play-off final against Huddersfield, Nottingham Forest underwent a much-publicised extensive recruitment drive ahead of their return to the top flight last summer - signing a staggering 22 players.

A terrific run of just one defeat in six matches following the Qatar World Cup helped Forest push up the table as the squad showed real signs of gelling, with the likes of Morgan Gibbs-White and Brennan Johnson starting to truly display their Premier League quality,

The Tricky Trees did suffer a further drop off in the spring to prompt relegation fears resurfacing, going 11 matches without a win, before an end-of-season flurry of three victories in their last six, including a memorable triumph over Arsenal, saw them secure their Premier League status.

This season's prospects

Having flirted with relegation for the majority of the last campaign and struggled so far this term, Nuno Espirito Santo is tasked with stabilising Forest in the Premier League.

With last year's cohort of new signings now settled in and up to speed with the demands of the English top flight, Forest will be striving to push towards the mid-table positions this season given the level of talent within the squad.

With quality players such as Taiwo Awoniyi, Morgan Gibbs-White and Anthony Elanga at his disposal, Nuno will likely be confident he can steer Forest well clear of any potential relegation danger once he has fully implemented his tactical principles at the City Ground.
