Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper recognises they face a battle at Chelsea on Saturday.
Chelsea have lost the past five home games.
But Cooper says: “I never pay any attention to any context around a team we play against apart from them being at their best because I always think you have to prepare for that. That’s what we’ll be doing. We want to go there with our best intentions of getting a result we really need and want.
“We have got to know what it takes from our guys to do well and try and minimise the strengths they have because there is a lot.
“We are playing Chelsea away so that is always going to be a tough game at any time of the season, you look at the squad they have, the changes they can make, the team they can start with, they have players all over the pitch who can make a difference and we have to be ready for that.”
