Forest manager Steve Cooper may be in serious trouble now as Tottenham brought the club's winless streak to six games with a dominant 2-0 victory at The City Ground.

Dejan Kulusevski was the man behind the scoring with a brilliant cross to assist on the first goal and a decisive dribble and finish to find the back of the net in the 65th minute.

The Swedish footballer has been crucial in the final third this season, taking on defenders and carrying the ball into dangerous areas. He now has five goals and two assists across the season's 17 matches.

Richarlison also scored to bring his tally across the past two games to three goals, his first time scoring in back-to-back matches while wearing a Tottenham shirt. The Brazilian now has four goals and three assists across 14 matches.

Despite the win which sees Spurs continue their return to form, Ange may have some difficulties at hand when it comes to selecting his starting XI in the upcoming fixtures.

Brennan Johnson left the pitch on a concussion-protocol substitution in just the 32nd minute, and his injury status is unknown at the moment. To make matters worse, midfielder Yves Bissouma picked up a red card, suspending him from action for the next four fixtures. He will miss the upcoming matches against Everton, Brighton, and Bournemouth, as well as the FA Cup clash against Burnley.

The injury crisis in North London is immense, and Ange will surely be disappointed by Bissouma's rash challenge.

Tottenham face Everton at home next Saturday, whose manager was in attendance at tonight's fixture, where Ange will likely have to call on the services of Oliver Skipp or Pierre Hojbjerg amid Bissouma's absence. If Johnson is injured, both may have to come on, freeing up Kulusevski to push out wide.
