Nottingham Forest will take on Chelsea in the 3rd round of this season’s FA Cup when it comes around at the start of January.
The Reds have had a good season so far and though they suffered a setback at the weekend against Cardiff City, they will feel as though they can challenge for promotion this year.
They’ll need to avoid slip-ups like the one at the weekend, though, with the pace that West Brom and Leeds United are currently setting.
Indeed, fans could well be forgiven for thinking that it might be best to forget all about a cup run this season, with them having a real chance of making the Premier League at the moment.
And, with it a tie away at Chelsea that feeling has grown – as well as one of deja vu given how often they have had to travel to face the Blues in recent seasons.
Joe Lolley has cottoned on to that and shared his reaction, with many fans joining in and some suggesting that he and his team-mates focus fully on the league this year:

We may as well have our own competition with Chelsea, Arsenal and Newcastle.

So in three years we’ve drawn Chelsea or Arsenal six times in the cups. That’s enough now. 😩
