Chelsea suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge yesterday.
Summer signing season Antony Elanga, who entered the game in the first half Due to Danilo’s injury, scored soon after the break when he pounced on a feed from Taiwo Awoniyi and buried it. Nicolas Jackson missed a sitter from close range to give the Blues the leveler, while Sterling also saw his effort go wide off the post.
Speaking after the game, Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochetinno admitted they need to be better.
“This type of game, I think, will help us to be more mature; it is not only about having quality, but it is also about competing in different ways. Of course, we can’t say that we didn’t deserve more, but in football, the stats sometimes reflect what you do, and in that case, we created, but we didn’t score, and we only had a few shots on target.” He said.
