Everton welcome Nottingham Forest to Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon for the first time in this century.

Everton team news

Yerry Mina limped out of Everton's defeat to Chelsea on the first weekend of the season with an ankle sprain that is set to sideline the burly Colombian for two months.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin didn't even make it to the first game of the campaign before sustaining a knee injury. The forward is scheduled for a return in mid-September but Ben Godfrey (fibula) and Andros Townsend (knee) aren't expected back until after Christmas at the earliest.

Tom Davies returned to the fold against Aston Villa last weekend but had to replace Abdoulaye Doucoure when he hobbled off with a hamstring problem. Fellow midfielders Andre Gomes and Allan are also doubts.

The dearth of midfield options may encourage the Everton hierarchy to accelerate their attempts to acquire Idrissa Gueye's services.

Nottingham Forest team news

The imposing centre-back Moussa Niakhate missed the final ten minutes of Forest's first victory of the season last weekend holding his right hamstring, leaving the former Mainz defender a doubt this Saturday.

Ryan Yates has been part of Forest's academy for a decade and a half but hasn't featured for the club this season while he nurses a minor knee injury. Omar Richards had been a Forest player for a matter of weeks before suffering a hairline fracture which continues to sideline him.

Nottingham Forest predicted lineup vs Everton

Nottingham Forest Starting 11: Henderson; Worrall, Cook, McKenna; Williams, Mangala, O'Brien, Toffolo; Lingard; Johnson, Awoniyi
Bench: Hennessey, Biancone, Mbe Soh, Surridge, Mighten, Cafu, Taylor, Hammond, Colback

Everton vs Nottingham Forest score prediction

Everton may be one of three teams without a point from the season's opening fortnight but that status belies the encouraging spells - particularly defensively - the Toffees have had in each match.

While few would begrudge Forest their first Premier League win in two decades, West Ham had a goal chalked off by VAR, hit the woodwork twice and missed a penalty.

Frank Lampard's side have scarcely enjoyed such good fortune this season but their luck could change against a Forest side without the benefit of a raucous home crowd.

Prediction: Everton 1-0 Nottingham Forest
