Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest: How the Pochettino may lineup against Forest

Chelsea will face Nottingham Forest in the Premier League this Saturday, with the Blues hoping to put on a strong performance at home.

The Blues won their first league game under new manager Mauricio Pochettino against Luton Town, and they will be hoping for a repeat performance against Forest.

Mauricio Pochettino will once again use a 3-4-2-1 formation and may choose a solid starting team for this encounter. Both Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Jackson were rested in midweek and are expected to feature from the start of this match in West London.

After keeping a clean sheet in midweek, Robert Sanchez will start in goal for the Blues. Chelsea’s back three will be Axel Disasi, Thiago Silva, and Levi Colwill, who will try to hold the Nottingham attackers at bay during the game.

Ben Chilwell will fill in as the left-sided wide player, while Malo Gusto will compete for the right wing-back position. Both will be given the opportunity to make some overlapping runs out on the flanks.

Chelsea might start record signing Moises Caicedo in the middle of the park alongside Enzo Fernandez and Gallagher. Holding midfielders Conor Gallagher and Moises Caicedo will look to dictate the tempo of the game in the centre of the pitch.

The Blues will most likely use Nicolas Jackson as their focal point of attack, with Raheem Sterling and Mykhailo Mudryk filling in the wide roles. Nicolas Jackson recently scored against Luton Town, which will give him some confidence heading into this match at Stamford Bridge.
