It’s been two defeats and a draw (3-3 with Liverpool, it should be said) since Potter left Brighton for Chelsea and Roberto De Zerbi arrived as his successor. On the other side, Steve Cooper is winless in eight games, including the first two upon signing his vote-of-confidence contract extension earlier this month.

Key storylines & star players
De Zerbi’s tactical style has hardly been a departure from the free-flowing possession that Potter brought to the club, as the Seagulls continue to play with three at the back with wing backs providing all the width for an otherwise narrow formation with two men in central midfield and two more just behind a lone striker. Thus far it has produced some decent xG numbers (1.34 per game), but not so many goals (three in total, all in one game). Sound familiar, Brighton fans?
The reality of playing in the Premier League, and trying to remain there next season, has certainly set in at Nottingham Forest. After picking up a win and a draw in their first three games (and looking promising in the lone defeat), Forest appeared to be riding the wave of confidence and good vibes. These days, though, after taking just 1 of 21 points possible, it looks more like desperation and fear.
