Chelsea player ratings vs Nottingham Forest: Nicolas Jackson wasteful with Moises Caicedo at fault in defeat

Chelsea player ratings vs Nottingham Forest: Nicolas Jackson wasteful with Moises Caicedo at fault in defeat

Anthony Elanga’s second half strike sank a flat Chelsea as Nottingham Forest produced an upset at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea dominated possession but created few chances against Steve Cooper’s side who only needed one counter attack to win 1-0 on Saturday.

Elanga slid home an excellent finish from the edge of the box to beat Robert Sanchez, with Cole Palmer thrown on minutes later for a Chelsea debut when Mauricio Pochettino chased the game.

Nicolas Jackson squandered the Blues’s only real chance late on, with a grandstand finish never materialising.

Nizaar Kinsella was at Stamford Bridge witnessing the action...

Robert Sanchez - 6

Excelled at coming for crosses as Forest threatened with good set-pieces but had one shaky moment playing out from the back.

Malo Gusto - 7

Helped Sterling attack well down the right while competing well against Morgan Gibbs-White.

Axel Disasi - 7

Dealt well with the physical threat at the back.

Thiago Silva - 5

Nutmegged by Taiwo Awoniyi who set up Elanga’s opener, not his best day.

Levi Colwill - 6

Fantastic in his progressive passing once again but looked uncomfortable in high full-back positions.

Moises Caicedo - 5

Arguably most at fault for Elanga’s goal as his heavy touch allowed Forest to spring into a deadly counterattack.

Enzo Fernandez - 7

Produced some beautiful passing as always and competed well against a physical team.

Raheem Sterling - 7

Chelsea’s best attacker as signified by 45.5% of the attacks coming down his flank. He was then switched to the left wing and then striker when chasing the game.

Conor Gallagher - 6

Produced the first good effort of the match and played well in possession but was partly at fault for Forest’s goal.

Ben Chilwell - 5

Missed a good chance in the 22nd minute and looked like a fish out of the water on the left wing at times. He provides balance but doesn’t get to shine in the left-wing role.

Nicolas Jackson - 4

Missed Chelsea’s biggest chance in the 83rd minute, blazing over from five yards out. He was also booked for dissent.

Substitutes:

Cole Palmer - 7

Set up Chelsea’s biggest chance of the match with a good through ball but it was wasted.

Noni Madueke - 6

Immediately brought an additional threat from the bench with his direct running.

Mykahilo Mudryk - 6

Didn’t impact the game going forward but defended one counter attack particularly well.

Ian Maatsen - 6

Tidy as ever coming on in his favoured left-back position.

Unused subs: Bergstrom, Petrovic; Cucurella; Ugochukwu; Washington
