"This is one...". Chris Sutton makes prediction for Nottingham Forest vs Southampton

Nottingham Forest host Southampton in the Premier League on Monday, May 8, 2023.

Both sides are currently in the relegation zone. Forest are 18th with 30 points, the same amount of points as 17th placed Leeds United. 

Meanwhile, the Saints are 20th with 24 points.

Ahead of the game, BBC Sport's football expert Chris Sutton has made his prediction.

"As I've said before, I've given up on Southampton. After watching what was such a gutless performance from them against Bournemouth last week, I am backing them to lose every game they have left this season," wrote Sutton on BBC.

"I know Saints fans love their club but, deep down, I think they will probably agree with me.

"As for Nottingham Forest? Well, I think my boyhood club are going to stay up. They have got some tough games coming up but they are still scrapping.

"This is one they will expect to win, and it could be the moment they kick on. Southampton, though, have already gone - they are going to be relegated. Anyone who says anything different is wrong, I'm afraid."

Sutton's prediction: 2-1
