Awoniyi eyes Chelsea scalp
Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi will be eyeing another goal when Nottingham Forest face Chelsea on Saturday (today) at Stamford Bridge.
After scoring in seven consecutive matches to break the 28-year scoring record for the Tricky Trees and also becoming the third African player (joint-level with Mohamed Salah and Emmanuel Adebayor) to score in seven successive PL games, the match against Chelsea presents an opportunity for him to score in an eighth straight match.
The Blues will be even more wary of the big Super Eagles striker thanks to his two-goal man-of-the-match performance against them the last time they met last season.
After seven straight wins in all competitions against Forest, Chelsea failed to beat them in two meetings upon their return to the Premier League after more than two decades.
Draws at the City Ground and at Stamford Bridge in their encounters last season makes this game a redemption game for the Blues.
