Bournemouth vs Chelsea Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 4-0.

The Premier League returns this midweek following a weekend of FA Cup action with an important clash along the South Coast between Bournemouth and Chelsea, who are battling for a place in this season’s top four in the Premier League.


Both these sides have seen their form dip in recent months following two very strong starts to the campaign, with both currently struggling for results.

The Cherries have lost 10 of their last 14 domestic matches in a run of form that has seen them exit the FA Cup and slip to 12th in the Premier League standings.

However, Eddie Howe’s side have won 10 points from their last five home matches and defeated West Ham United 2-0 last time out in Dorset.

Chelsea have lost four of their last 11 Premier League matches and were also recently held to a 0-0 draw at home to Southampton in a run of form which has seen them slip to fourth.

However, despite their patchy form the visitors are favourites to win this game and triumph in their fourth away game in the last five.

The away side are favourites to win this game although it may not be comfortable – a 2-1 triumph for the FA Cup holders would appear a likely outcome from it.

The former Coventry City striker has already netted 11 goals for the Cherries this season and has even been linked with a big-money move to Chelsea, his opponents here. Wilson has netted in each of his last two games and three of the last four at the Vitality Stadium. The Englishman to find the net in this game is among the best  online betting odds available for this round of action, and is 41/20 at 888Sport.

Chelsea have only scored five goals in their last six Premier League matches – failing to find the net in three of them. Bournemouth have failed to find the net in four of their last eight league games. Maurizio Sarri’s side have five clean sheets in their last 10 while Bournemouth kept a shutout against the Hammers last time out. It’s 6/5 at 888Sport for both teams to draw a blank.


Head to Head

Chelsea have won all three away matches at Bournemouth and have won each of the last two games, both of which came this season – 1-0 in the League Cup and 2-0 in the Premier League, both at Stamford Bridge. However, Bournemouth have beaten the Blues twice including 0-3 in London last season.


  • Bournemouth won 20 points from their opening 10 league games this season but have picked up just 10 points in the 13 matches since.
  • Bournemouth have won six and lost just three of their 12 Premier League home matches this season – their 21 points at home is the sixth strongest record in the league.
  • Chelsea have won seven of their 11 away matches this season, collecting 22 points in the process – the fourth strongest record in the division.
  • Maurizio Sarri’s side are three points clear of Arsenal but four points behind third-placed Tottenham, so a top four spot appears to be their aim for the season.
