After a frustrating draw against Brighton, Chelsea go up against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup 3rd Round. The Blues were very fortunate that United lost against Arsenal which stopped them from closing the gap. Forest, on the other hand, have won all 3 of their last 3 games. Despite the Forest Manager (Sabri Lamouchi) coming out and saying that his team has no chance of winning, Chelsea HAVE to be wary of the attack that Nottingham Forest holds. Their Forward Lewis Grabban is a deadly striker scoring 14 goals and 1 assist this season. Another player would be their Left Winger Sammy Ameobi. The winger has 2 goals and 5 assists - posing to be a very technical player. The Winger has attempted 79 Dribbles and 52 of those were successful, which is an extremely good stat. That being said he's crossing isn't great with 41 inaccurate crosses, so there is not much of a threat there. This is a must-win game for Chelsea which will see us playing with a mix of youth, experience, and a few first-team players. We don't play for a week after this game, so some first-team players would most likely play. This competition is probably our last hope of a trophy this season, and so we must win all the games that we play. Team News: Alonso is out injured as well as the usual, Ruben. Fikayo has trained, so for him, there is a bit of uncertainty. Gilmour is sick, so again there is a bit of uncertainty of him starting. Predicted lineup: (4-3-3) Caballero, James, Christensen, Guehi, Emerson, Jorginho (Gilmour if well), Kovacic, Barkley, Pedro, Hudson-Odoi, Batshuayi. Score Prediction: Chelsea 4 - 1 Nottingham Forest
