Nottingham Forest welcomed Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon and the hosts managed to get a great 2-0 win.
Steve Cooper’s side put in a very good performance and dominated against one of the best teams in this year’s Premier League.
It is no coincidence that Villa are in the top five of the table with 22 points, just five behind leaders and champions Manchester City.
Forest picked up three valuable points after getting off to a perfect start to the clash with a quick goal against Villa, relying heavily on their home-field momentum.
Unbeaten run at the City Ground
Nottingham managed to take advantage of their home ground in today’s game as well and what should be noted is the excellent unbeaten streak that the English team has “built” at home.
Something that was also pointed out by the official website of the Premier League in X, with a separate report.
“Steve Cooper’s side are proving to be very tough opposition at the City Ground.”
So the strength of the home is a big deal for Nottingham, as in the last eight home games of the league, they have not known defeat.
More specifically, Forest has five wins and three draws in these last eight home games, including three matches from last season.
Undoubtedly a very important performance by the English team, as these eight games include victories over opponents such as Arsenal, Aston Villa and Brighton.
City’s stadium was packed for today’s game against Aston Villa, as it is at every Nottingham Forest home game, with the club’s supporters giving Steve Cooper and his players a big boost.
