Chelsea were not very good in their home match against Southampton but failed to grab the three points. They will now play a much easier match on Saturday when they will host Championship side Nottingham for the FA Cup. Nottingham are coming off a strong win but have been struggling lately.
Chelsea were solid but not good enough in their home match against Southampton and eventually failed to grab the three points. They were much better in the first half but were unable to score the winning goal. Despite the draw, Chelsea have been in really great shape lately and have lost just once in their last eight matches in all competitions (5-1-2). They might have not won any of their last two home matches but their overall home record is pretty self-explanatory (11-1-4).
Nottingham are coming into this match after a really strong 2-4 win at home against Championship leaders Leeds. However, that was their first win after a five-match win-less streak. They are now sitting at the 7th spot of the league table with 39 points, four behind the top-six spots that grant entrance to the promotion playoffs. They have not been very good on the road so far, winning just three matches but have also lost just two (3-2-8).
