Chelsea ended a run of three-straight defeats in the Premier League with a win over Bournemouth last time out. Goals from Kai Havertz and Mason Mount secured a comfortable victory for Graham Potter's men, but they are well off the pace in the race for the Champions League. Their return to form against the Cherries was impressive, and they need to repeat it to put themselves back in contention for a top-four spot.

Forest returned to Premier League action with a defeat at the hands of Manchester United last time out. Steve Cooper's men were undone by the quality of the Red Devils in the final third and failed to make an impression in the contest. The battle at the bottom of the table remains tight, so a positive result against Chelsea would lift the club out of the relegation zone, but Forest need to string together a series of results to pull themselves clear of the mire.
