English giants Chelsea can have a better season. On Sunday, it travelled to take on a relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest, only to settle for a 1-1 draw. While Raheem Sterling put the visitors ahead in the 16th minute, Serge Aurier drew the equaliser in the 63rd through Willy Boly’s assist. The upset has put The Blues in the eighth spot. Meanwhile, Chelsea head coach Graham Potter has admitted that his boys could have been better in the second half, besides lacking pace and energy, while he has grown concerned by his side’s inability to pull off a success.

“When the game became more out of control, we suffered with the duels and struggled to deal with that aspect. It’s a tough game, Forest played a good game, but we’re disappointed with our performance over the 90 minutes and concerned we didn’t deserve the win,” added Potter, reports 90min.

The Blues have won just a couple of its EPL away meetings, while Potter explained, “Away from home, teams are not going to make it easy for you. Players will run through a brick wall [versus Chelsea], and we must be humble to know that is a challenge we face. And, we have to do better.”
