The Premier League is back for some midweek action, kicking off with Brighton's hosting of Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

The hosts flashed some exciting signs in Roberto De Zerbi's first game against Liverpool but enter this one on a run of two straight defeats without scoring, most recently falling 2-0 to Brentford.

They will, however, fancy their chances against the Premier League's bottom side. Forest have lost six of their last seven and Steve Cooper's new contract has done very little to ease the turbulence among the league newcomers.

Here's all you need to know about this one.

Brighton team news

Winger Kaoru Mitoma is expected to miss out with the ankle knock he picked up against Brentford, with the 25-year-old set to join Jakub Moder on the sidelines.

Enock Mwepu will hopefully be present at the game but will obviously not be playing after a heart condition forced him into early retirement.

Bench: Steele, Colwill, Turns, Lamptey, Gilmour, Sarmiento, Lallana, Enciso, Undav

Nottingham Forest team news

There are no fresh concerns for Cooper, who remains without Moussa Niakhate (thigh), Jack Colback (back) and Omar Richards (calf).

The 4-3-3 setup from the past few games has yielded marginally better results for Forest, who will likely deploy something similar here.

Brighton vs Nottingham Forest score prediction

Forest have struggled all season but have found things particularly hard on the road. They've scored just once in five games and have shipped a whopping 14 goals.

While Brighton have work to do, they have at least flashed plenty of attacking potency. It took something sensational from Brentford goalkeeper David Raya to keep them at bay at the weekend, and it's hard to see Forest pulling out something similar.

De Zerbi should be expecting his first victory here.

Prediction: Brighton 2-0 Nottingham Forest
