, Leicester vs Nottingham Forest: Live stream, TV channel, team news and kick-off time for Premier League Midlands derby

ROCK bottom Leicester City are desperately in need of three points when they welcome East Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest to the King Power on Monday.

The Foxes are the only team in English top-flight football to have not recorded a single win this season.

Leicester were humiliated by Tottenham before the international break

Nottingham Forest sit in 19th after losing three consecutive Premier League fixutres

And pressure is seriously mounting on Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers after witnessing his side get embarrassed 6-2 by Tottenham Hotspur before the international break.

However, Forest find themselves on quite the torrid run themselves having lost their last three consecutive Premier League fixtures which includes a 6-0 thrashing by champions Manchester City.

But they say form goes out the window when it comes to a derby – especially one which hasn’t happened as a league fixture since 2014.
