The defending Premier League champions, Chelsea are about to visit Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth on Saturday.
Following a poor start of the season, The Blues from the West London have started already to regain their old form following their two consecutive victories against Watford in the Premier League and Everton in the Carabao Cup.
On the other hand, Bournemouth are not thrilled with their position as they are in the 19th position and are fighting to avoid the relegation zone. So, the game will be very crucial for the home side, as they are searching for an escape from the bottom of the table. On the other hand, Chelsea will not consider anything less than three points as the league leaders Manchester City have already created a huge 9 points gap at the top of the table. So, for being in the title race, The Blues must have to secure the best points from the match.
Bournemouth vs Chelsea Team News:
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte might be in a relaxed position as his key players are on the verge of returning from the injuries. He already has got the services of Alvaro Morata and Danny Drinkwater in the previous two matches following their recovery from injury. Now his smile might be broader as the midfield general N’Golo Kante is also very close to his fitness and we must not get surprised if the Frenchman features in the starting line-up. On the other hand, Bournemouth have secured a hard-fought 2-1 victory against the last positioned team on the table, Stoke City. So, their manager Eddie Howe is not expected to make any major changes in his starting line-up.
Bournemouth vs Chelsea Possible Line-ups:
For Chelsea, the combination of Eden Hazard, Pedro Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata is a nightmare to any defence, any day. Apart from that, the performance of Willian and Michy Batshuayi in the last game can provide a massive boost to the Chelsea manager Antonio Conte. Moreover, the long balls from Cesc Fabregas in the midfield are mouthwatering to any striker in the world.
On the other hand, for Bournemouth, Junior Stanislas can be crucial. Apart from that, the ex-Liverpool youngster Jordan Ibe can also change the momentum of the game.
