Reason For Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tips

Chelsea sit fourth in the Premier League table after being held by Southampton to a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. The Londoners are still in the title race, but will be viewing the FA Cup as a great chance to add to their trophy collection. Championship side Nottingham Forest provide the opposition on Saturday, and after a poor run of form the promotion hopefuls beat Leeds United 4-2 to get their New Year off to the perfect start.

Chelsea completely dominated the ninety minutes against the Saints with 65% of the overall possession, seven corners to their guests two, and thirteen shots during the ninety minutes. However, a combination of poor finishing, resolute defending, and excellent goalkeeping from the visitors meant the game ended 0-0. Southampton very rarely ventured into their hosts half with any purpose and had just two shots on target during the match. A frustrating result for Chelsea was a great result for Southampton who remain in the bottom three on sixteen points.

Colback scored his first goal of the season to hand Notts Forest a fifth minute lead against title challenging Leeds United, and that solitary strike proved to be enough to separate the pair at the halfway point. The visitors started the second half the brighter of the two clubs and moved into a 2-1 lead thanks to goals from Clarke and Alioski. Another strike from Colback brought the two clubs level in the sixty-ninth minute, and two goals in the space of four minutes for Murphy and Osborn saw Notts Forest wrap up an impressive 4-2 win.

Chelsea and Forest last met in 2017 for a League Cup tie at Stamford Bridge where the hosts ran out convincing 5-1 winners. Kenedy and Batshuayi scored inside the opening twenty minutes to put Chelsea 2-0 up, and Musonda added a third goal shortly before the half time break. Batshuayi completed his hat trick in the second half to increase Chelsea’s lead to five goals with just four minutes remaining, and in stoppage time Darikwa scored a consolation strike for the visitors.

With four wins, one draw, and one defeat from their last six matches Chelsea head into Saturday’s FA Cup tie as the clear form favourites. Forest have lost three, drawn two, and won just one of their last six matches, which isn’t ideal preparation ahead of a trip to Stamford Bridge. Hazard top scores in the league for Chelsea this season with ten goals, while Grabban leads the way in front of goal for the visitors with fourteen Championship goals so far.

We’re confident that Chelsea will win to nil on Saturday, and have backed the final scoreline to read 3-0. Chelsea have won five of the last seven meetings between the two clubs and the hosts have won four of their last six matches in all competitions, Forest have lost three of their last six in the Championship. Chelsea have kept three clean sheets in their last five matches, and Notts Forest have failed to score in four of their last six matches and we can see that trend continuing on Saturday.
