Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest preview
Chelsea will face Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup 2019/20 third round, Sunday (01/005/2020). Chelsea’s match against the second division team will be held at Stamford Bridge, home of the Blues.
Chelsea will certainly be the favorite to win. However, foster children Frank Lampard still must be vigilant.
Forest has always won in the last three matches. Sabri Lamouchi’s team defeated Hull 2-0, Wigan 1-0 and Blackburn 3-2 in the Championship respectively. The mainstay on the front lines is Lewis Grabban, who has scored 14 goals in all competitions this season.
Meanwhile, Chelsea just failed to win in the Premier League. Against host Brighton, Chelsea could only draw 1-1 and had to settle for one point.
After playing four games in 11 days, Lampard needs to do some rotation. This could be an opportunity for players like Willy Caballero, Andreas Christensen, and Michy Batshuayi to show off.
Chelsea will not go down with their full power. Even so, Chelsea is believed to be able to overcome Forest’s resistance and advance to the next round.
Last season, Chelsea also met Forest in the FA Cup third round. Playing at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea won 2-0 through a pair of goals from Alvaro Morata. Chelsea will definitely want to repeat it.
