Chelsea were 2-0 winners against Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge to qualify for FA Cup fourth round.
First half strikes from Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ross Barkley helped The Blues overcome The Tricky Trees in their FA Cup third round fixture.
Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard made nine changes to his starting line up, giving first team actions to the likes of Mitchy Batshuayi, Hodson-Odoi, Ross Barkley, Pedro and Caballero.
It took just six minutes of play for Hodson-Odoi to give the London side dressed in a vintage all Blue jersey the lead.
Forest looked to have won themselves a penalty in the 23rd minute when Mighten was infringed in the box, but lenghty VAR reviews showed that his leg was offside resulting to the penalty being chalked off.
Chelsea asserted their dominance in the game minutes later, with Hudson-Odoi being the protagonist again.
The young English attacker’s shot wasn’t properly parried and the ball fell perfected for Ross Barkley who grabbed Chelsea’s second goal of the match.
Nottingham Forest’s bad day at the Bridge was confirmed when their 68th minute headed goal was ruled out for offside.
Batsuayi could’ve easily made it three for Lampard’s side, but his poor decision making failed him.
Callum Hodson-Odoi sent in a teasing cross which the Belgian striker should have easily headed home, but he chose to use his leg instead and the ball went over.
A comfortable 2-0 win it was for Chelsea at full-time despite Lampard’s numerous changes to his ideal starting line up.
