Nottingham Forest got a second-half goal from Serge Aurier to defy Raheem Sterling’s opener and deliver a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at the City Ground on Sunday.

Chelsea led 1-0 at the break when a Christian Pulisic cross was deflected off the cross bar and onto the waiting foot of Sterling, but Aurier showed patience and technique in cleaning up a 63rd-minute mess in Chelsea’s box to level the line.

Forest very much deserved the point and might feel aggrieved to not have found a winner, but the Tricky Trees will be happy with their 14th point of the season. That’s good for 18th place, level with 17th-place West Ham.

Chelsea fails to move past 7th-place London rivals Fulham and sits eighth with its point.

Key storylines & in-form players

Orel Mangala was Forest’s stand-out player at Old Trafford, but the Tricky Trees’ danger is usually driven by Morgan Gibbs-White, Jesse Lingard, and either Emmanuel Dennis and/or Taiwo Awoniyi as a lead forward.

Chelsea’s still learning its biggest stars under Graham Potter, and USMNT winger Christian Pulisic helped Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling deliver the goods against Bournemouth. Can it be the same front three versus Forest or will Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang take someone’s place in the front three?
