          In their last five games in all competitions, Nottingham Forest have one draw and four losses.

          The trip to Villa Park was one to forget for Nottingham Forest. Ollie Watkins opened the scoring for Aston Villa in the fourth minute, and a brace from Douglas Luiz put Villa 3 - 0 up. Moussa Niakhate got Forest on the scoresheet before halftime and then Morgan Gibbs-White made it 3 - 2 early in the second half. However, a goal from Leon Bailey gave Villa the 4 - 2 win.

          In the Fifth Round of the FA Cup, Nottingham Forest hosted fellow Premier League side Manchester United. Casemiro scored the only goal of the game in the 89th minute to give United the 1 - 0 win and the spot in the next round.

          Back in the Premier League, Forest took on Liverpool in a controversial match. Darwin Nunez won it for Liverpool in the 99th minute with a controversial goal, giving Liverpool the 1 - 0 win.

          The trip to Brighton saw Forest manage more shots on target in just 36% of the possession. However, an own goal from Andrew Omobamidele in the 29th minute was the only goal of the game in a 1 - 0 win for Brighton.

          The last time out for Nottingham Forest was against Luton Town. Wood opened the scoring just after the 30 minute mark to give Forest the 1 - 0 lead at halftime. Forest held on until the last minute with just 40% of the possession, but an 89th minute goal from Luke Berry rescued a 1 - 1 draw for Luton.

          Crystal Palace took a 1 - 0 lead into halftime against Chelsea through a goal from Jefferson Lerma. Former Eagle Conor Gallagher equalised just two minutes into the second half and put Chelsea into the lead in the 91st minute. Enzo Fernandez added a third in the 94th minute to give Chelsea a 3 - 1 win.

          Crystal Palace were back to winning ways against Burnley. After the early red card to Josh Brownhill, Chris Richards, Ayew and Jean-Philippe Mateta all scored in the second half to give The Eagles the 3 - 0 win over ten-man Burnley.

          The next time out saw Crystal Palace swap South London to North London to take on Tottenham.
