Nottingham Forest have made 11 new signings since winning the Championship playoff final back in May, but with manager Steve Cooper losing multiple loanees and his first-choice goalkeeper, starting the season with a new-look side was always inevitable. Dean Henderson looks like a smart addition between the sticks, and Neco Williams could prove to be a bargain from Liverpool, but the jury's still out on Jesse Lingard. Will the former Manchester United man justify his colossal wage?

J-Lingz starts for his new side today, as does Dean Henderson in goal, and Williams at full-back. Moussa Niakhaté and Harry Toffolo are also involved from the start in a team that includes plenty of new faces.

Newcastle had a storming second half of last season thanks in no small part to an unprecedented spending spree during the January transfer window. The cheque book has gone relatively unused in comparison this summer, with defender Sven Botman from Lille the only major signing, but for the first time in years the Geordie faithful will go into the season with optimism. Can they get things started with a home win? 

Botman starts on the bench today, with Dan Burn and Fabian Schär preferred in the middle of the back four, but Nick Pope replaces Dúbravka in goal. Callum Wilson, who spent a lot of last season sidelined by injury, starts up front.

The match kicks off at 3pm BST today, Saturday 6th August 2022. Follow our guide on how to watch a Newcastle vs Nottingham Forest live stream from wherever you are in the world.
