Pundit Paul Merson says the encounter between Nottingham Forest and Luton Town this Saturday is a “must-win” for both teams.
With nine points from eight games, Forest are 13th in the Premier League rankings. Luton Town sit in 17th place, just above the relegation zone, with four points from their opening eight games.
Merson believes that despite each team still having 30 games to play, it is already a must-win situation for both Forest and Luton. He’s also said the Hatters are a “cut below” the rest of the division.
“This is a must-win game for both teams,” Merson said, according to Sportskeeda. “Luton must start winning matches, and they must try to win this game.”
“They played against a ten-man Tottenham side and failed to score.” They appear to be a cut above the others, suffering in the Premier League.
“Nottingham Forest have nine points from their first eight games.” Forest are now the better team and should be able to win this game. Nottingham Forest vs. Luton Town, 2-0.”
