Nottingham Forest vs Chelsea

Despite their recent points deduction, Nottingham Forest remain in a decent position to avoid relegation this season.

Forest beat Sheffield United 3-1 last time out to move three points clear of 18th-place Luton with an 11-better goal difference. And with their final game of 2023/24 coming against 19th-place Burnley, the Midlands outfit should be able to pick up enough points to stave off any threat placed by Luton or the Clarets.

Nottingham Forest not to be relegated

Nottingham Forest survival odds

After struggling for form lingering in midtable for much of 2023/24, Chelsea have now lost just one of their last 11 Premier League matches (5-0 versus Arsenal on April 23).

This run has seen the Blues climb into the top seven and to within just two points of 6th-place Newcastle with three to play. And with the Magpies still to play 8th-place Manchester United this month, Chelsea have a very good chance of knocking the North East outfit out of the top six if they win their remaining three matches.
