Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest – League Cup – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest

Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest – Chelsea host Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge on 20th September, Wednesday in a League Cup game.

Chelsea played a disappointing goalless draw against Arsenal in the weekend when David Luiz was sent off for a rash tackle. The defending champions have already fallen behind the two Manchester clubs in the race for the Premier League title and seem to be struggling with coping with injuries and suspensions with a relatively small squad.

Nottingham Forest are placed tenth in the EFL Championship and are coming off a 2-1 loss at the hands of Wolves this past Saturday.

Team News

Daniel Drinkwater is injured while Pedro is unlikely to be risked after he picked up a knock on Sunday. David Luiz is suspended. The visitors will be without the injured Matthew Cash, Chris Cohen and Jamie Ward.

Chelsea Possible Starting Lineup: Willy Caballero, Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, Davide Zappacosta, N’Golo Kante, Tiemou Bakayoko, Kennedy, Willian, Michy Batshuayi, Charlie Musonda.

Nottingham Forest Possible Starting Lineup: Jordan Smith, Tendan Darikwa, Joe Worrall, Matt Mills, Armand Traore, Liam Bridcutt, Ben Osborn, Ben Brereton, Kieran Dowell, Barrie McKay, Darryl Murphy.

“We play Forest in midweek so it’s one less game in the Premier League, but the manager may have rotated David anyway. It’s a blow because David has been playing really well since he arrived last season. He’s a great player and a great leader but we have confidence in the other guys as well. He will be missed but we have good players on the bench.”

– Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea.
