Chelsea lost further ground in their battle to make the Premier League top four as they were held to a 1-1 draw by a stubborn Nottingham Forest side.
American Christian Pulisic created the first goal by raiding down the left flank and delivers a dangerous cross towards Havertz. Boly flicks it away from the forward, but it loops back onto the Forest crossbar. The rebound falls kindly for Sterling to smash past Lodi and into the top-right corner with Henderson stranded. Raheem Sterling put Chelsea ahead at Forest’s City Ground in the 16th minute, before Serge Aurier drew the teams level with an acrobatic finish in the 63rd minute.
🚨 Chelsea XI vs Nottingham Forest :
Kepa, Azpi, Kouli, Silva, Cucurella, Zakaria, Jorginho, Mount, Sterling, Havertz, Pulisic.
