With a draw against Nottingham Forest, Chelsea lost ground in the chase for the top four.
Chelsea lost ground in their pursuit of a top-four spot in the Premier League after being held to a 1-1 draw by a tenacious Nottingham Forest team.
Chelsea took the lead in the 16th minute through Raheem Sterling, but Serge Aurier's acrobatic finish in the 63rd minute tied the game.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's mistimed header came close to handing Graham Potter's side a late winner, but the visitors couldn't get through. They are presently seven points behind Manchester United in fourth place.
Forest eventually broke through when Aurier volleyed past Kepa after Chelsea failed to clear a corner, the right-back celebrating furiously.
