Benoit Badiashile and Joao Felix's two late goals helped the Blues to a 3-1 victory at Bournemouth last weekend, marking Chelsea's first victory under interim manager Frank Lampard.
A relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest will be the opponent for Chelsea on Saturday at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea had lost their first four league games during Lampard's second tenure as manager, but they have already won one.
Monday's seven-goal thriller victory over Southampton gave Forest three crucial points in their fight for Premier League survival.
However, Steve Cooper's team is still only three points above the relegation zone with two games remaining, and given their dismal away performance, they have a lot to make up for on their trip to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea’s England internationals Reece James and Mason Mount have been ruled out for the rest of the season, and Lampard is concerned that Ben Chillwell may follow suit.
In addition, Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Armando Broja, a striker for the Blues, are still absent.
While Dean Henderson, Chris Wood, Scott McKenna, and Omar Richards are still out for Forest, Brennan Johnson and Danilo are back to full health.
Having won two of their past three league games against Brighton and Southampton, Nottingham Forest has given themselves a chance to stay in the league.
However, both of those triumphs occurred at City Ground, and with only six points from their 17 road games, Forest has the worst road record in the division.
