Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest: Match preview
In the third round of the FA Cup Chelsea will play on home soil against Nottingham Forest. It will be a very good opportunity to repair an otherwise very poor home run this season.
Chelsea team news:
In the Champions League, Chelsea defeateed Lille, had a draw with Ajax and lost against Valencia as a host.
Chelsea as recorded a home defeat this season in the League Cup against Manchester United and his home stats of 4-2-4 in the Premier League is very poor.
After all, Chelsea has lost their last two home league games to clubs that are not realistically competitive in the Premier League. No goal scored against Bournemouth 0-1 and Southampton 0-2.
Chelsea’s coach Frank Lampard, quite logically, will not push the best team this Sunday. There should be only a few players from the first team from the start but despite that, the plan is to move on and win against the team from Championship.
Last season Chelsea did not go far in the FA Cup, but two seasons ago won this competition, while playing finals three seasons ago.
Probable lineup: Caballero, Lamptey, Christensen, Zouma, Emerson, Gilmour, Kovačić, Barkley, Pedro, Hudson-Odoi, Batshuayi.
Nottingham Forest team news:
Nottingham Forest has a good season behind it. This team is currently fourth in the league standings. The leading duo made a big run for everyone, but Nottingham Forest is well on its way to further Premier League qualifications.
For two things, Nottingham can definitely be optimistic before Sunday’s game starts. He manages and feels very good this season and has scored more league points on the (6-5-2) side than he did in front of his fans.
Furthermore, before the duel against Chelsea, Nottingham Forest achieved three wins in a row. They defeated Wigan (1-0) and Blackburn (3-2) at home, while away from Hull (2-0).
Probable lineup: Murić, Cash, Worrall, Figueiredo, Robinson, Semedo, Watson, Lolley, Silva, Carvalho, Grabban.
Although Chelsea will not play with the first team, it is obvious what to expect. A lot of goals and a certain win by Chelsea is the only realistic score.
