The City Ground to Host Nottingham vs Chelsea
Nottingham Look Set to Retain Its Bottom of the Table Position
No outsider finds it easy to get used to a foreign land. And for Nottingham, the Premier League is a foreign land; a competition in which they have merely been participating, almost as bystanders, as they find it difficult to adjust.
After its first 12 games, the Forest team had accumulated 7 defeats and only 2 wins and 3 draws. At the time, this meant nothing but doom and gloom for the season, placing them at the bottom of the table, right in the relegation zone.
Making matters worse, Nottingham Vs Chelsea is coming up. And although they have no choice but to win, they know that this is an almost impossible task.
The most outstanding match that we can rescue from the Forest team, up to their 12th game this season, was the match against Liverpool, which they surprisingly managed to win by the minimum score, 1-0.
Chelsea Remains One of the Best Clubs in the Premier League
Chelsea FC finds itself fighting for one of the more profitable top 5 spots in the table. But the fight at this level is quite close.
Up until their eleventh matchday, they were accompanied in this fight by teams like Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham, and Newcastle. At this stage, the club had accumulated 6 victories, three draws, and only three defeats, allowing them to place in the number 5 position. But everything can change.
Nottingham Vs Chelsea is one of those matches in which the Blues cannot miss the opportunity to add three more points to their total, especially given that they know Nottingham is an opponent they can easily hurt.
