Late goals from Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Jackson clinched a narrow 3-2 victory for Chelsea over Nottingham Forest, complicating Forest's Premier League survival plans. While Forest came tantalizingly close to ensuring their stay in the top flight, the win keeps Chelsea’s hopes alive for a European spot next season.

Chelsea's Ukrainian winger Mykhailo Mudryk also found the back of the net, contributing to the team's seventh-place standing with just two matches left in the season. Mauricio Pochettino's side is now set to face Brighton & Hove Albion and Bournemouth in their final games, seeking to end an otherwise inconsistent campaign on a high note.

Nottingham Forest, positioned 17th, are three points ahead of Luton Town but remain vulnerable as they face a crucial encounter against already relegated Burnley. Despite their superior goal difference offering a significant advantage, the uncertainty of football looms large.

"You never know in football,"

remarked Forest midfielder Callum Hudson-Odoi, emphasizing the unpredictability ahead of their season finale.
