The Great British public love an underdog and if there’s one football competition where many an applecart has been upset over the years, it’s the Emirates FA Cup.
Although Nottingham Forest have a wealth of history and tradition to match the oldest football tournament in the world, they travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on Saturday afternoon, where they will no doubt use the underdog mentality in the hope of inspiring a classic Emirates FA Cup upset.
As the betting suggests, the Championship side will go into this tie as the outsiders, but as The Reds know full well after beating Arsenal in the third round last season, anything can happen in the Emirates FA Cup.
Chelsea – 2/9
Draw – 5/1
Nottingham Forest – 12/1
Since the turn of the millennium, the two sides have faced each other twice in the Emirates FA Cup – both times at Stamford Bridge, with Forest losing 2-0 and 3-0, respectively.
Forest fans will have to look back to 1997 to find a winning scoreline against Chelsea, when they were 2-0 winners in the Premiership.
