Chelsea vs Nottingham – Prediction, and Match Preview

Chelsea vs Nottingham – Chelsea, who defeated Bournemouth 1-3 in the Premier League, will be looking for a repeat of their previous victory. In that game, Chelsea controlled 66% of the possession and 5 of its 11 shots on goal were successful.

Conor Gallagher (9′), Benoît Badiashile (82′), and Joo Félix (86′) scored goals for Chelsea. Four of Bournemouth’s ten goal attempts were successful. For Bournemouth, Matas Via scored in the 21st minute.

Chelsea has only seldom been able to hold out for the entire 90 minutes of recent encounters. They will be troubled by Chelsea’s failure to stop opponents from scoring in six of their last six matches, which resulted in 12 goals being conceded. Having said that, we’ll simply have to wait and see if that tendency continues in this upcoming game.

In their last three games, Chelsea has not lost against Nottingham Forest in the league, according to an analysis of their previous performances. In the previous five league games, they have failed to win at home. Their supporters aren’t pleased.

Nottingham Forest enters the match fresh off a 4-3 victory over Southampton in the Premier League. In that game, Nottingham Forest had 36% of the possession and 4 of their 9 shots on goal were successful.

Morgan Gibbs-White (44′), Taiwo Awoniyi (18′, 21′), and Danilo (73′) all scored goals for Nottingham Forest. Five of Southampton’s 19 shots on goal were on target. James Ward-Prowse (96′), Lyanco (51′), and Carlos Alcaraz (25′) all scored goals for Southampton.

According to the statistics, Nottingham Forest has allowed goals in six of their past six games, resulting in a total of 13 goals from the opposition. Nottingham Forest hasn’t exactly played very well defensively.

According to their past performances, Nottingham Forest has lost all three of their league games when playing Chelsea away from home. In their last eight league games, they have failed to win away from home. It’s definitely not a good run.

Chelsea vs Nottingham – Betting Analysis

The outcomes of their previous meetings, which date back to 20/02/1999, show that Nottingham Forest has had terrible luck in these games. They haven’t been able to win any games at all, while Chelsea has simply outperformed them, coming out on top in 83% of those games.

Between them, they scored 19 goals in these games, with the Blues scoring 16 and the Reds scoring 3. That equals 3.17 goals per game on average.

The final league encounter between these teams occurred on Premier League encounter Day 18 on January 1, 2023, with the final result being Nottingham Forest 1, Chelsea 1.

Nottingham Forest had 28% of the possession at the time, 12 shots on goal, and 5 of them were successful. Serge Aurier (63′) was the only member of their team to register a goal. Chelsea made 7 attempts at goal, scoring twice. Raheem Sterling scored after 16 seconds. Peter Bankes served as the referee.

Frank Lampard, the manager of Chelsea, will be without the services of Kalidou Koulibaly (hamstring injury), Marc Cucurella (muscle injury), Ben Chilwell (hamstring injury), Mason Mount (pelvis injury), Reece James (hamstring injury), and Armando Broja (cruciate ligament rupture).

Our prediction is that The Blues will start the first half with Kepa Arrizabalaga, Trevoh Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Benoît Badiashile, Cesar Azpilicueta, Ngolo Kante, Enzo Fernández, Conor Gallagher, Noni Madueke, Kai Havertz, and Mykhaylo Mudryk in a 4-3-3 formation.

Steve Cooper, the manager of Nottingham Forest, must make decisions from a group that has some fitness issues. The following players won’t be participating in this game: Willy Boly (hamstring issue), Dean Henderson (thigh issue), Scott McKenna (shoulder issue), Omar Richards (broken leg), Neco Williams (facial fracture), Chris Wood (hamstring issue), and Giulian Biancone (knee issue).

Keylor Navas, Serge Aurier, Felipe Monteiro, Moussa Niakhate, Renan Lodi, Ryan Yates, Danilo, Orel Mangala, Brennan Johnson, Taiwo Awoniyi, and Morgan Gibbs-White might all be sent off if The Reds decide to go with a 4-3-3 formation.

We think Nottingham Forest will do well to score against a Chelsea club that, if everything goes as planned, will likely dominate this encounter.

What are the top odds for the game?

In terms of the bookies’ odds on the 90 min. result market, backing Chelsea is best priced at 1.52, backing a draw is 4.35 and putting your money on the winning team to be Nottingham Forest can get you 6.5. Those are the best of the returns offered at this very moment.
