Nottingham Forest vs. Chelsea lineups

Cooper will make a late call on Jesse Lingard’s fitness, after he was forced off with a muscle injury, in the defeat to his former side at Old Trafford.

First choice goalkeeper Dean Henderson is back in the team after being ineligible to face his parent club last time out.

Potter is still battling against a lengthy injury list at Chelsea, with Reece James now sidelined, but Hakim Ziyech and Mateo Kovacic should return to the squad after an extended post-World Cup rest.

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): Arrizabalaga (GK) — Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly, Cucurella — Mount, Jorginho, Gallagher — Pulisic, Havertz, Sterling

Nottingham Forest vs. Chelsea betting odds, prediction

The signs look worrying for Forest ahead of the second half of the season as they gear up to fight for their Premier League survival in 2023.

Chelsea have struggled for consistency since Potter’s mid-season arrival at Stamford Bridge, but their ruthless win over Bournemouth has revived confidence, and they should win comfortably in the East Midlands to kick off 2023.

Prediction: Chelsea to win 3-1
