CHE vs NOT Dream11 Prediction: Tottering Chelsea look to resume semblance in front of their vociferous home supporters.
Topsy-turvy would be the finest way to serenade Chelsea’s season over the course of the last month. From torching up the Premier League with their electric brand of attacking football to now being hit hard by inconsistency, the club has succumbed to a lacklustre set of results.
Their foregone 1-1 draw against Brighton perfectly epitomised that narrative for the side with the team failing to capitalise on their attacking chances. Along with it, yet another drab show in defence saw the side slip up pivotal points, a spree of results they’ll be looking to arrest at the earliest plausible.
And when they face off against Nottingham Forrest come today’s third round FA Cup tie, the home side will be looking to wrench out of their ordeal at home. They have lost three matches in a row in front of their boisterous supporters, results they’ll want to overhaul as they look to proceed in the showpiece tournament.
Elsewhere, Nottingham Forest who were shunted out of the competition at the same stage in the last edition by Chelsea, willing be looking to make the most of a jittery Chelsea unit. They are flying high in the Championship at the moment with a 3-2 win over Blackburn the last time around seeing them sit in fourth place.
CHE vs NOT Dream11 Prediction
After an exceptional start, Chelsea have hit a block with some laggard showings but they should manage to get past Nottingham Forest today. Their attacking firepower is way too sensational, one which should pile on the goals for the side today.
Marcos Alonso and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are both set to be out of action for Chelsea for the day with the player suffering from injuries.
The two players miss this one out through injuries for the visiting side as well with Chema and Yuri Ribeiro both set to be out for the day.

Goal-keepers for CHE vs NOT Dream11
Chelsea will be heavily shuffling around with their playing 11 for this one and one of that change will come in the form of their goal-keeper. Although the hosts have been paper thin in defence of late, they look way the likelier side to emerge out of this with a clean sheet to see us opt for Willy Caballero for the day.
Defenders for CHE vs NOT Dream11
Andres Christensen has gone out of favour in the Premier League with Rudiger returning from injury but the CB should find a place in the side for this forthcoming contest. We’ll be opting for him from Chelsea’s side due to his likeliness to emerge from a clean sheet along with the attackingly inclined Emerson Palmeiri.
He’s always held an affinity to incessantly torch his way down the park and provide ample assistance to his side’s attacking sorties, making the player sublime value on the day. Elsewhere, from the opposition we finally have their first player being brought in with Matthew Cash being roped into our side for the day.
Mid-fielders for CHE vs NOT Dream11
Someone who has been reposed massive faith in by Frank Lampard this term has been midfielder Mason Mount. He’s become a mainstay for the side this season with the player willing up to the trust earmarked n him with some succulent attacking displays.
And with Willian said to feature only as a substitute today Mount will be on corners and free-kicks as well for the side to make him an instant pick for the day. Callum Hodson-Odoi has been massively slandered and berated this season for his dreary displays but he’s up against a defence which has let in 25 goals this term to see us move in for him as well.
He’s going to be accompanied by Matteo Kovacic, yet another player who has seen his stature rise in the side with his intricate passing and ball movement. Jorginho and Willian were considerations as well but there’s no affirmation of if they’ll be in the playing 11 to see us leave them out for this one.
Elsewhere, Nottingham Forest are going to be represented by a duo over here. We have ventured in with indomitable and diminutive Tiago Silva and Joe Lolley, two players who can easily make things cumbersome for this wobbling Chelsea defence.
Strikers for CHE vs NOT Dream11
While Chelsea’s leading goal scorer Tammy Abraham would have been an instant pick for us for the day, the striker is likely to get rested for this one to see us leave him out. He’s replaced by Michy Batshuayi, someone who’ll be looking to make the most of the chance accorded to him today.
Elsewhere, the visiting side find representation in the form of their leading goal scorer with the 14 goals and 1 assist to his name with Lewis Grabban being hammered down in our side for this one.
Captain and vice-captain
Mount will captain our side out for the day while Batshuayi is our vice-captain.
