CHE vs NOT Dream11: For the second successive season, Chelsea host Nottingham Forest in the 3rd round of FA Cup at Stamford Bridge. The Blues pulled off a comfortable 2-0 win last season thanks to two goals from Alvaro Morata. That game happened to the final for Cesc Fabregas and first for Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Plenty has changed at the Bridge since then and at Forest as well. Chelsea are under new management and pretty much in the transition under Frank Lampard. While the visitors are eying the big prize as for the first time in many seasons, promotion back to the Premier League looks a genuine possibility for the Forests.
