David Moyes has lumped praise on Nottingham Forest, ahead of their clash at the London Stadium today.
Moyes said: ‘We want to try pickup from the midweek result [1-0 win against Olympiakos], it was a great result hopefully we do it today.’
On a return for Kurt Zouma he said: ‘He is hugely important to us. Getting him back is important but he feels good enough to play and hopefully he will be fine.’
Speaking on Jarred Bowen, he added: ‘I have been really pleased with him we need the competition upfront. If he keeps his goal-scoring record up that would be good, he has played well of the right and now down the centre he has done well.
‘I think Nottingham Forest had a great result against Aston Villa [last week] and they are doing an awfully lot of good things they have brought players in and got a good balance to the team.’
