Chelsea player ratings vs Nottingham Forest: Moises Caicedo costs the Blues AGAIN - but Nicolas Jackson should have saved their blushes

If Chelsea's owners thought throwing £450 million ($566m) at their broken squad this summer would make for a quick fix, they were sorely mistaken. The limitations of Mauricio Pochettino's new-look side were exposed for a second time in four games on Saturday, as another error from £115 million ($145m) signing Moises Caicedo led to an unlikely 1-0 victory for Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge.

Caicedo stumbled and gave the ball away early in the second half, with former Manchester United forward Anthony Elanga taking full advantage as he ran through and rolled the ball coolly into the bottom corner.

Chelsea finally mustered a clear opportunity to salvage a point in the dying embers of the game when Raheem Sterling got to the byline, but Nicolas Jackson somehow conspired to prod his pull-back over the bar from just four yards out.
