After an agonizing 23-year absence, Nottingham Forest are back in the Premier League. The former European champions return to top flight action at St James’ Park, where for once the locals aren’t approaching a new season with the sole ambition of staying up, and the Saudi Arabian sovereign wealth fund isn’t pumping money into Newcastle just to see Eddie Howe guide the team to mid-table safety. Read on to find out how to watch Newcastle vs Nottingham Forest online and get a Premier League live stream, no matter where you are.
Howe has spent the Magpies’ endless reserves of cash wisely so far, and the signings of center-back Sven Botman from Lille and goalkeeper Nick Pope from Burnley further strengthen a rearguard that had already been vastly improved by January arrivals Kieran Trippier, Matt Targett and Dan Burn.
If Callum Wilson can stay fit, there’s little doubt that he, along with Allan Saint-Maximin and Brazilian duo Bruno Guimarães and Joelinton have the qualities to make Newcastle a genuine contender for European qualification.
Forest were rooted to the bottom of the Championship when Steve Cooper took over last September. Guiding them to promotion was the most impressive achievement in English football last season, but having overseen a significant squad overhaul this summer, he’s now got an even bigger task on his hands.
Dean Henderson looks an excellent replacement for the talismanic Brice Samba, while there’s pressure on top-earner Jesse Lingard to hit the ground running and help guide starlets Brennan Johnson and Taiwo Awoniyi, who scored 15 goals in the Bundesliga last season. Follow our guide to get a Newcastle vs Nottingham Forest live stream and watch the Premier League online from anywhere.

We’ve set out how you can live stream Newcastle vs Nottingham Forest in a number of countries around the world. However, if you’re away travelling for pleasure or for work, you probably won’t be able to watch the game like you normally would at home.

A good streaming VPN can let you get around these digital borders, while also offering robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They’re also really easy to use.
