Premier League: Chelsea vs Bournemouth

Chelsea vs Bournemouth Betting Tip and Predictions.

In the last match in Premier League on Saturday evening, Chelsea host Bournemouth.

Chelsea started this season very poor and after 14 rounds they are standing at the 14th position. Team from London were one of the main favorites to win the title before the season started, but in this moment even the place which leads in the UEFA Champions League doesn’t look reachable. Chelsea improved their performance in defence and didn’t concede a single goal in their last three matches in all competitions, but they have problems in the attack and they are not impressive. There are some rumors that Diego Costa could left the club soon. Good news for home side is that their first goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has recovered from an injury after three months out.

Bournemouth stand in the relegation zone and they desperately need points. They promoted in Premier League last season and their main goal is to avoid relegation. The match against Chelsea maybe is not the best chance to take some point, but they have nothing to lose. Visitors are in a very poor form. They are without win in their last 9 matches in all competitions. The main problem for Bournemouth is their defence. They have the worst defence in Premier League, conceded 30 goals in 14 matches (more than 2 goal per match).

Chelsea vs Bournemouth injuries and suspensions

Home side will be without John Terry, Ramires and Radamel Falcao. Visitors have problems with goalkeeper because Artur Boruc and Adam Federici are both doubtful, so Ryan Allsop could make his first Premier League start.

Chelsea vs Bournemouth possible lineups

Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Zouma, Azpilicueta; Fabregas, Matic; Willian, Oscar, Pedro; Hazard.
Bournemouth: Allsop; Smith, Francis, Distin, Daniels; Ritchie, Gosling, Surman, King, Stanislas; Murray.

Chelsea vs Bournemouth Prediction

Chelsea seems like they started to play better, but they have to improve their attack in order to keep the chance to reach the place which leads in the UEFA Champions League. They are favorites and shouldn’t have many problems to take three points.
