Nottingham Forest will begin their Premier League season for 23 years with a trip to Newcastle United.

The Reds earned promotion to the top flight with a dramatic victory over Huddersfield Town in the EFL Championship promotion play-off final.

Following the trip to St. James' Park, Steve Cooper's men face West Ham United at the City Ground.

Trips to Everton and champions Manchester City are sandwiched around a home game against Spurs in the opening month of the season.

September gives Forest a chance to gain some momentum with matches against fellow new boys Fulham and AFC Bournemouth as well as Leeds United, who stayed up on the final day of the season.

October will be a busy month with six fixtures, rounded off by games against runner-up Liverpool and Arsenal while November only sees two games taking place.

With the World Cup taking place this year, only two matches will be played in the Christmas period, a trip to Manchester United on the 26th and the visit of Chelsea on New Year's Eve. 

January and February offer Forest a chance to breathe, only the reverse fixture against Manchester City being a match against one of the top six in that period.

Everton and Newcastle come to the Midlands in March while consecutive matches against Manchester United and Liverpool highlight April. The run-in includes fixtures against Chelsea and Araenal before the Reds close the season at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace.

Having finished their season later than any other Premier League side, Forest have yet to confirm their pre-season schedule, but Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin is rumored to be visiting the City Ground in mid-July.
