The Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup has been drawn as of Monday night and the result is that Chelsea were drawn at home against Championship side Nottingham Forest.
 
The tie will likely take place on the weekend of the 5th/6th January, however this is subject to change if the game gets covered for live television coverage.
 
With qualifying for the Champions League paramount as well as getting the league campaign momentum back underway after a convincing win against Fulham last weekend – the FA Cup may very well drop down in the priority list for Maurizio Sarri.
 
The tie with Nottingham Forest will likely give the home Blues fans the chance to see some of the club’s fringe players in-action.
 
Interestingly enough the last three meetings between Chelsea and Nottingham Forest have been in the FA Cup and League Cup – the most recent last year with the Blues cruising to a 5-1 victory.
