The England international made several good saves to keep the Blues at bay in the second-half, and believes that the result could reinvigorate their momentum coming into the final weeks of the campaign.

Forster, who was quoted by talkSPORT directly after the game, said: “We were fantastic in the first half and created a lot of chances and were unfortunate just to get the penalty really.

“Second half we knew we would have to defend as you do at Stamford Bridge and we’re absolutely delighted to come away with a point. It’s massive and keeps the confidence high. It’s a great point and will set us up nicely for the remaining games.”

Teammate and goal scorer Dusan Tadic added: “In the end we deserved it. We had some chances and in the end we had a bit of luck, but I think we played really good and showed that when we play good as a team no-one can beat us.”
