Predicted Chelsea XI to face Nottingham Forest: One enforced change as Mount, Havertz & Pulisic retain starting roles

Chelsea kick off their 2023 with an away trip to face newly-promoted Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

A New Year’s Day clash awaits and Graham Potter will hope his side don’t have a hangover heading into the New Year as they back-to-back wins in the Premier League.

Chelsea are currently eighth after beating AFC Bournemouth 2-0 on Tuesday night, ending their run of five league outings without victory.

Kai Havertz continued his World Cup form for his club with a goal and assist, with Mason Mount getting Chelsea’s second in west London to claim all three points.

Potter will be keen to extend their winning run to two games and build momentum and confidence ahead of their league and FA Cup clashes against Manchester City which await next week.

The 47-year-old could opt to keep the same team which started on Tuesday night other than the enforced change following Reece James’ knee injury setback that will sideline him for up to a month.
