Chelsea draw Nottingham Forest in FA Cup third round
Chelsea have been handed a home tie in the third round of the FA Cup after they were drawn with Championship side Nottingham Forest.
The Blues will enter the competition in the third round with the rest of the Premier League and Championship sides.
On Monday, they were given a home tie at Stamford Bridge against Nottingham Forest.
Chelsea were given this exact draw last season as the two sides came together in West London back in January.
That time, Chelsea beat the Reds 2-0 in West London, then managed by Maurizio Sarri.
But the Blues didn’t get too far into the latter rounds of the competition last season after they exited the competition in the fifth round after a defeat to Manchester United.
Frank Lampard had great success as a player in this competition, and will be looking to replicate it as a manager.
Ties will be played on the weekend of the 4th of January.
