Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest Form

Chelsea host Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. Whilst the Blues are a division higher and the team in form, that can all go out of the window in a cup-tie.

Chelsea Form

Chelsea have been in good form, although will be disappointed to have only managed a draw at home to Arsenal on Sunday. However, they did win their previous four matches.

Chelsea Form: DWWWWL

Nottingham Forest Form

Forest’s form has been up and down, with three wins and three losses from their last 6 matches. Their last outing was a 2-1 defeat at home to Wolves on Saturday.

Reasons For Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest Predictions & Betting Tips

Chelsea are the overwhelming favourites for this match with odds of 1.14 with bet365, and will be expected to win comfortably against Nottingham Forest.

Whilst we would be surprised to see anything other than a home win, there is a slight risk involved given that Antonio Conte is expected to rest players with bigger matches to come.

Forest are the underdog, but with odds of 21.0 to win with bet365 it may be better value to bet on the away. They have nothing to lose, and stranger things have happened before especially in this competition.

They already have one Premier League scalp having knocked out Newcastle in the last round. All this being said, even a Chelsea second string is a step up and it would still take a historic performance to win in 90 minutes.

That’s why we are backing Chelsea to win 3-0 as our correct score prediction (6.0 at bet365). The stand-in players will be looking to impress Antonio Conte and make the most of their chance in the first team, meaning they will be motivated to get a good result.

Michy Batshuayi could be a good bet to score first at 4.33 with bet365. The Belgian is likely to take Alvaro Morata’s place in attack for this one.

Forest have no injury concerns to speak of at the moment. Reports suggest that manager Mark Warburton will send out a strong line-up as he goes in search of a cup upset.
