A crucial match for both teams 

With Nottingham Forest three points away from relegation, they have a tough task at hand to avoid it. They cannot afford to lose the remaining two matches because it will confirm their position in the Premier League next season. They secured a much-needed win in the last match against Sheffield United to boost their chances of making the playoffs. 

Following the much-improved performance they’ve shown in recent matches, Chelsea are again in contention for European places. Three huge results have brought them back to 7th place in the league in the last three matches, starting with a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa and then victories over Tottenham and West Ham. To qualify for European football next season, the Blues must win all the remaining matches.
