So Dominic Calvert-Lewin is indeed out, Beto will lead the line. Also Sean Dyche chooses to stick with Ashley Young despite his horror show last weekend.
Everton’s overall situation got a lot worse last weekend with both AFC Bournemouth and Luton Town winning, which means the Blues are now 5 points away from the Hatters in 17th place and the Cherries a further three points ahead of that. The Toffees did not play badly against Manchester United, but a combination of poor finishing and dastardly luck saw them slip to a 3-0 defeat
Hosts Nottingham Forest are beat Chelsea in the beginning of September and then surprisingly put down Aston Villa in the beginning of November, but did precious little else in between and they sit in fifteenth place with 13 points. They have been a formidable outfit at home though, and the Blues face a stringent task at the City Ground.

The Toffees battled Forest to two draws last season, with Forest needing a late equalizer to level the game 2-2 in March at the City Ground, soon after Dyche had taken over.
