Nottingham Forest stunned Chelsea 1-0 in the return game in September last year

Chelsea put five unanswered goals past West Ham last Sunday. The Blues lost just 1 of the last 12 league fixtures.
Nicolas Jackson completed a brace in the last weekend’s drubbing of the Hammers.

Nottingham Forest and Chelsea will drop the curtain on an exciting Premier League Saturday in the last game of the day at The City Ground. Both teams enter the tie on a high following the last weekend’s wins. Which of the two will back those up this time around?

Nottingham Forest took advantage of the clash against the rock-bottomed Sheffield United to claim a precious three-pointer last weekend. A 3-1 victory at Bramall Lane moved the Reds three points clear off the drop zone. The job is not yet done. Claiming a result against an in-form Chelsea side will require something special.

Chelsea are flying high after a 5-0 thumping of West Ham last weekend. Nicolas Jackson starred with two goals and an assist while the likes of Cole Palmer and Noni Madueke delivered the goods each on the occasion. Mauricio Pochettino’s men are now level on points with Manchester United in 7th position. European football may well be within their reach at this point.
