Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest: Prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results, odds today

Chelsea battle Nottingham Forest today boosted after their long-awaited first win under Frank Lampard.

While one victory certainly does not change the feeling around the dire campaign as a whole, the 3-1 success at Bournemouth last weekend does at least offer hope of ending it on a slightly more positive note.


With so little left to play for, it’s hard to know where Chelsea stand. Still, back at Stamford Bridge, it’s important to try and build momentum where possible ahead of a huge season next time out.

Forest, meanwhile, are fighting for their lives but have been so poor away from home all season, winning just once on the road. Anything from today would be a key boost as they look to put further distance to the relegation zone, having moved three points clear with only three games left after that seven-goal thriller against Southampton on Monday night.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest is scheduled for a 3pm BST kick-off today on Saturday May 13, 2023.

Stamford Bridge in west London will host the contest.
