Graham Potter opens up on why Chelsea drew against Forest
Chelsea manager Graham Potter has admitted that his side’s performance in the second half against Nottingham Forest wasn’t good enough.
Chelsea dominated the first half of the game only for their level to drop drastically in the second half.
The blues got their only goal in the game through Raheem Sterling in the first half.
Speaking at the press after the game, Graham Potter lamented the lack of pace and energy about Chelsea’s second half performance, stating:
“Hard earned point, against a team that are set up well they put us under pressure second half. Our performance level wasn’t good enough to take the three points. We didn’t move the ball fast enough, not enough movement. But it would’ve been unfair to take the three points.
“When the game became a bit 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.
When asked about Chelsea’s poor form away from home so far this season – they’ve won just two away Premier Leagues thus far – Potter said:
“Away from home, teams are not going to make it easy for you. Players are going to run through a brick wall [against Chelsea] and we have to be humble to know that is a challenge we face. And we have to do better.”
