Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Maurizio Sarri is becoming increasingly concerned about Chelsea’s offensive strength so much so that the club are considering the possibility of bringing back players like Michy Batshuayi from a loan spell. Even when Chelsea to have a lot of the ball, they are unable to break down opposition. There has been little good action from Chelsea in the final third. Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest were able to achieve a rather interesting win over Leeds in the midweek action. Yet, the team’s defence has been ripped apart in recent weeks. I would pick a win for Chelsea and more than 3.5 goals.

Nottingham’s four-goal haul against Leeds United largely came about with the opposition down to 10 men. Aitor Karanka’s defensive-minded set up is unlikely to get anything out of this match. Chelsea will control most of the ball and they have enough quality to cut off any early threat from the visitors. I would pick a Chelsea clean sheet.

Chelsea win and over 3.5 goals – 7/5

Chelsea clean sheet – 5/6
