  • Predicted Lineup:

Bournemouth : Begovic; Smith, S Cook, Ake, Daniels; Brooks, Surman, Lerma, Fraser; King; Wilson

Chelsea : Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Barkley, Pedro, Morata, Hazard


With three wins in his opening three fixtures, Mauricio Sarri’s men are on the right track with so much still to be developed. Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth are also unbeaten so far in this year’s premier league campaign so this might be a tricky situation for Chelsea. Sarri has already found his ideal starting XI with Kovacic and Hazard into his team, which means the domination on the ball with quick passing and pressing is set to put the opposition on thier toes. Eddie Howe would require more concentration from his players to defend throughout the match and attack on the counter. They sure have a fine line of King and Wilson in the attack which can shake up the loose back four of Chelsea. However, the pressure from Chelsea might be too much for Eddie Howe to hold on to at Stamford Bridge tomorrow. I am predicting a 2-0 Chelsea win
