Previews: Nottingham Forest vs Chelsea

Nottingham Forest will take on London’s Chelsea in the 37th round of the English Premier League this coming Saturday at the “City Ground,” cheered on by their home crowd.

Nottingham Forest

The squad is fighting desperately to stay in the elite division under Nuno Espirito Santo’s leadership. Only three points separate the Forest from the relegation zone after only 29 points from 36 games. It is important to acknowledge that the situation at the foot of the table would have been even more precarious in the absence of their recent away victory against Sheffield United.
The Forest had won just once in their previous four games and had only accrued one point. Luton and Burnley both took advantage of this, cutting the difference to almost nothing. Nottingham Forest has lost eight of its 18 home games and only managed five victories.


For a long while, the aristocrats struggled to find their form even after making large investments to bolster their squad, which made many people think they had little chance of qualifying for Europe. Nonetheless, the Blues have performed admirably in recent games, while their rivals have continued to lose ground. Chelsea is now only two points behind Newcastle in seventh place in the table as a consequence of this.
Following a 2-0 victory over another capital club, Tottenham, Chelsea crushed West Ham 5-0 in their most recent match, a London derby. Not insignificantly, Chelsea has not always played well. As demonstrated against Everton, they are capable of crushing opponents 6-0, but in their subsequent game, they lost to Arsenal 5-0.

Interesting match details and head-to-head records.

• Nottingham defeated Chelsea 1-0 on the road in the first leg

• Both teams have scored in just two of the previous five games.

• The total goals scored in the last five games have exceeded 2.5 in just one.
