Nottingham Forest vs Chelsea LIVE: Premier League result, final score and reaction

Nottingham Forest 1-1 Chelsea: Serge Aurier’s second-half goal cancelled out Raheem Sterling’s opener

Potter admits Chelsea form needs consistency

Chelsea dropped more points in their quest to climb back up the Premier League standings as Serge Aurier earned Nottingham Forest a 1-1 draw with Graham Potter’s side.

Fresh from their first league win in six games last time out against Bournemouth, Chelsea started well in the Nottingham drizzle, with Raheem Sterling firing them into the lead in the 16th minute.

Forest improved after the break and were desperately unlucky not to equalise early in the second half as Morgan Gibbs-White’s drilled half-volley hit the underside of the crossbar but bounced on the goal line and away.

The hosts kept coming and deservedly levelled things up as Aurier fired home in the 63rd minute from a corner and looked the more likely to go on to win the match but it ended all square.

Nottingham Forest come from behind to secure a 1-1 draw in their Premier League clash against Chelsea at the City Ground. Raheem Sterling put the Blues ahead when he converted from close range on the rebound after Willy Boly flicked Christian Pulisic's cross onto his own bar. However, Forest were resilient in the second half and equalised through Serge Aurier, who found the net with a fine finish on the half-volley to earn his team a share of the spoils.

Ziyech whips a cross into the box but Aurier and Boly are on hand to clear the danger.
