NOTTINGHAM FOREST are back in the top flight after 23 long years in the EFL.
Steve Cooper’s men returned to the Premier League with a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town in the Championship play-off final at Wembley.
And they visit a club who are starting a new era of their own as Newcastle’s Saudi owners begin their first full season in charge.
Forest have been extremely busy in the transfer market with Jesse Lingard and Neco Williams leading an incoming group of no fewer than 12 signings.
Newcastle, meanwhile, have strengthened but been more frugal than many would have expected.
Defender Sven Botman, goalkeeper Nick Pope and left-back Matt Targett have been their only three signings so far.
