Nottingham Forest vs. Chelsea, Premier League: Live blog; highlights

Nottm Forest vs Chelsea

Chelsea roll into Nottingham with plenty of momentum from the back-to-back wins over Spurs and West Ham, and if we can keep that going in this final week of the season, we just might find ourselves playing European football next season — especially if Newcastle were to drop points, as they are doing right now, level against Brighton, 1-1.

Forest meanwhile are hoping to avoid relegation, and their survival could be confirmed before kick-off here, if Luton Town were to lose. They’re currently also tied 1-1, with West Ham. UPDATE: West Ham now lead, 3-1!

So plenty to play for and plenty to keep an eye on.

Mauricio Pochettino makes no changes from last weekend, which is certainly a reasonable enough decision given our play in that game. Plenty of reinforcements on the bench if needed, including Reece James!

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ola Aina both start fo Forest.
