How to watch Leicester vs Forest live on TV and online or listen for free

How to watch Leicester City vs Nottingham Forest: Monday Night Football returns with a big East Midlands derby. Here’s how to watch Leicester vs Forest on TV and live stream online.

It’s been a disastrous start to the Premier League season for Brendan Rodgers and Leicester City, who currently sit bottom of the league, without a win all season and six defeats overall in seven Premier League games.

There have been a few hammerings in there too, and it seems the manager’s days are numbered if he can’t reverse the recent results trend. However, there’s a chance to redeem some local pride tonight as newly-promoted Nottingham Forest visit the King Power Stadium.

Forest have been quite easy on the eye since returning to the top flight, but results have also been lacking for Steve Cooper’s new-look side. They sit just one place above Leicester in 19th, having only notched one win. After more than 20-years outside of the top flight, it would be disastrous for big-spending Nottingham Forest to drop out of the elite after just one season.

The defensive record of both teams has been poor all season, so we’re expecting a free-flowing game with plenty of goalmouth action to report. A loss for Leicester would leave them five points adrift at the foot of the table, while a Forest win would lift them them out of the relegation zone. There’s loads at stake here.

Forest battered Leicester in last-season’s FA Cup so they’ll fancy their chances of a repeat. Surely another big loss would be curtains for Rodgers? Here’s how to watch Leicester vs Nottingham Forest on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
