Reasons For Chelsea vs Bournemouth predictions & Betting Tips
Nine points behind leaders Manchester City, the Blues can’t afford to lose any more ground in the defence of their title. They face the team currently second bottom of the Premier League table.
However, Bournemouth is always a tough place to visit and won’t be an easy match for Antonio Conte’s men. City needed a rather fortunate 96th minute goal to win there earlier in the season.
Their start has been rather out of sorts, although Chelsea have won their last two matches following costly losses to City and Crystal Palace, and a Champions League draw against Roma.
If anything though their away from has been better than their home form this season, and we expect them to prevail on Saturday at 1.62 with Unibet.
Bournemouth have won their last two matches but this is a step up in opposition. Their home record is the third worst in the league with just one win from four wins so far.
We expect them give Chelsea a match, but they may ultimately come up just short. A 2-1 away win looks good value at 9.0 with bet365.
As for first goalscorer, this is the type of game with lots of tight spaces that Eden Hazard often thrives in. Back him to score the first goal at 6.10 with Unibet.
Bournemouth vs Chelsea Form
Chelsea face Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium on Saturday evening. Antonio Conte’s side need a win to keep their title defence alive, with Manchester City already nine points ahead of them at the top of the table.
Chelsea haven’t been in great form, particularly in the league where they now find themselves nine points off the pace. They made the Carabao Cup quarter-finals with a win over Everton, but didn’t totally convince.
Chelsea Form: WWDLLW
Bournemouth are also in the quarter-finals after beating Middlesbrough on Tuesday. They also won their last league match away at Stoke City, although are down in 19th as things stand.
Bournemouth Form: WWLDLW
