Reason for Nottingham Forest vs Chelsea Predictions

New Year’s Day brings us an EPL duel between Nottingham Forest and Chelsea. Both teams are in need of points, albeit for different reasons. The Tricky Trees need them to get away from the relegation zone. Nottingham is currently eighteenth in the league but can improve their position at home today. Given their current form, a win for Nottingham would be much needed to avoid relegation and could be the winner of the match, but with a little extra help, the team should get the result. Nottm Forest has scored six times in the last three games. Nottm Forest has scored in 5 of their last five home matches. Brennan Johnson is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Nottm Forest has lost several key players through injury: Omar Richards, Dean Henderson, Giulian Biancone, Cheikhou Kouyate, Moussa Niakhate, and Morgan Gibbs-White.

The World Cup break came at the right moment for Chelsea. Before that, the Blues lost three straight games, but right after coming back from Qatar, they ended the losing streak. On Monday afternoon, we saw them beat AFC Bournemouth 2-0. The Blues dominated the game throughout the 90 minutes, and the fans can be pleased with their performances. What needs to worry them is that Reece James suffered an injury that will keep him sidelined for weeks. As a reminder, he spent weeks trying to build up fitness after a knee injury in October. The worst thing is that he’s not the only Chelsea player whose name is on the injury list. Wesley Fofana, Ben Chilwell, N’Golo Kante, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Armando Broja, and Kepa Arrizabalaga are all expected to miss the Nottingham Forest vs Chelsea game on January 1st. Chelsea’s manager Graham Potter started Kai Havertz in the “false 9” role against AFC Bournemouth, which proved to be the right choice – the German scored one goal while also making one assist. Chelsea won just 3 of their last ten games while losing four away matches. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Jorginho is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him.


It is going to be an exciting clash, as Nottingham Forest is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Chelsea will meet the expectations and deliver a win.

The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this encounter.
