Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will attempt to win his second game when relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest visit Stamford Bridge this weekend.

The Blues ended their six-game losing streak when they beat Bournemouth 3-1 and with belief and confidence growing within the squad Lampard will now look to end the season on a high.

The 44-year-old manager is however likely to still be missing some key players with left-back Ben Chilwell the latest to pick up a hamstring injury. The England defender joins Reece James and Mason Mount on the treatment table.

Armando Broja who has been working behind the scenes after suffering a knee injury is also not going to be available as well as Kalidou Koulibaly who signed from Napoli in the summer.

In what has been a mixed first season for the Senegal international, Koulibaly looked to be settling in the last days of Potter but injury and the fact that Napoli have gone on to win the league title has softened his impact. He is also likely to still be unavailable for this weekend having picked up the injury against Real Madrid a fortnight ago.

Summer signing Marc Cucurella is also carrying a thigh problem and is not expected to be ready for the Forest game even though there are hopes that he could return to the team at some point before the end of the campaign.

Wesley Fofana missed out on the weekend's win against Bournemouth but understand it was only precautionary and he should be available again in the coming days.

Chelsea are 11th on the Premier League table- six points behind 10th-placed Fulham but Lampard’s side have a game in hand.
