Graham Potter questioned the ability of his Chelsea team as he admits Nottingham Forest deserves huge credit after the draw.

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has credited the Nottingham Forest team after their 1-1 draw last night in the Premier League.

The Blues started the game on a bright side and getting the goal first in the first half of the game through Raheem Sterling.

The Forest team made it tough for the Blues in the second half of the game and also savaged a point in the game.

Potter, who spoke after the game stated that: “They played better and more positively with more men forward and they used their forwards well. They’re dangerous and recent results here show they make teams suffer so we had to suffer today for sure.

“The first period of the second half was tough for us. We had to wrestle back some control, which we did with the substitutions, but over the course of the game when you understand the responsibility we have to do better, we could do better.”

Potter further stated that despite the fact that the game was in their hands and the first half their performance level was poor.

“Overall when the game was controlled for us in the first half, I didn’t think we did well enough,” he said. “Our performance level wasn’t good enough in terms of we didn’t move the ball fast enough, didn’t have enough movement. You have to credit the opponent in both halves.

“In the first half, they defended deeper and attacked big spaces and in the second half when it became a bit more uncontrolled, we suffered as well.

“They played a good version of themselves. Even though we had a good chance at the end with Pierre and we rallied, I think it would have been unfair if we’d taken more than a point.”
