Chelsea begin their FA Cup campaign against Nottingham Forest looking to move a step closer to retaining the trophy that they lifted with victory over Manchester United in May.

Nottingham Forest make the trip to Stamford Bridge having returned to winning ways with a 4-2 triumph over Leeds United on New Year's Day.

General Match Information:
Team: Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest
League: England – FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 5 January 2019
Time: 16.00 PM GMT +1
Venue: Stamford Bridge


Team News
Sarri is expected to hand a starting role to Fabregas as the Spaniard reportedly bids farewell to Chelsea after four-and-a-half years at the club.

The Italian is also likely to change his entire back four, with Davide Zappacosta, Andreas Christensen, Ethan Ampadu and Emerson Palmieri potentially making up the backline.

Gary Cahill could be left out in order for the centre-back to avoid becoming cup-tied, but Eden Hazard may keep his spot in the team due to the injuries sustained by Willian, Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Olivier Giroud will play no part in the game, but Mateo Kovacic could return from illness with Jorginho and N'Golo Kante being left out.

Michael Hefele is absent for Forest after suffering an Achilles injury against Leeds, while Tobias Figueiredo will only feature if he has recovered from a dead leg.

Michael Dawson remains out, so Claudio Yacob could be used in the centre of defence having dropped back into that position against Leeds.

Lewis Grabban is a huge doubt through injury, but Ben Osborn could be given a start after coming off the bench to score on New Year's Day.

Head to head
Saturday's meeting will represent the 93rd competitive contest between the two clubs, with Chelsea winning 38 times in comparison to 26 victories for Forest.

The teams have only squared off on three occasions since the turn of the millennium, and each game has been played in either the FA Cup or League Cup.

Chelsea have prevailed in all three encounters, with the most recent victory coming by a 5-1 scoreline in last season's EFL Cup.

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Caballero; Zappacosta, Christensen, Ampadu, Palmieri; Kovacic, Fabregas, Barkley; Loftus-Cheek, Morata, Hazard

Nottingham Forest possible starting lineup:
Steele; Janko, Yacob, Fox, Robinson; Guedioura, Colback; Lolley, Osborn, Dias; Murphy
