EPL:Forest fight back to claim valuable point against Chelsea


Serge Aurier netted his first goal in almost two years to earn Nottingham Forest a deserved point and leave Chelsea still teetering under Graham Potter.

Raheem Sterling took advantage off a fortunate ricochet off the woodwork to give the visitors an early lead but former Tottenham defender Aurier levelled after the break with a fine finish from a scrambled corner.

The result was not enough to lift Steve Cooper’s side out of the drop zone but it also kept Chelsea in eighth place – nowhere near where a Chelsea side is expected to finish.

Forest have been impressive in front of their own fans in their long-awaited top-flight comeback but Potter’s reputation won’t have been enhanced by this result.

Cooper and Co now have a relegation showdown with Southampton to look forward to on Wednesday, while Chelsea must now take on Manchester City in the league and then the FA Cup this week.
