AFC Bournemouth faces Chelsea at the Vitality Road in a fixture from the 28th round of the Premier League
AFC Bournemouth faces Chelsea at the Vitality Road in a fixture from the 28th round of the Premier League. As usual we are going to discuss this match with you during our English Premier League high odds predictions.
There’s no second opinion about that – AFC Bournemouth need points right now. The Cherries are having a pretty average season so far, currently being placed 16th in the standings with 26 points. The previous campaign was a bit better for Eddie Howe’s team, but right now Bournemouth are in a much more delicate moment. The team lost 15 of its 27 games in the league so far, which is the main reason why the club is at such a position at the moment.
Last week Bournemouth tried to deliver during their visit to Burnley at the Turf Moor, but the hosts were the ones who dominated, securing a 3-0 win. In the second half of the game Eddie Howe tried to change what’s happening, but the inclusion of Ryan Fraser, Junior Stanislas and Dominic Solanke didn’t led to a positive conclusion of the game.
Chelsea are still in the Top 4 of the Premier League, although their advantage in front of the 5th Manchester United is just 41 points. For Chelsea’s young manager Frank Lampard it’d be a pretty nice achievement to secure the Blues a place in Top 4 in his first season in the Premier League. There’s no doubt about that. Chelsea are usually fighting for the title, but right now the club is clearly in a transition period.
Last week Chelsea secured their 13th win for the season. The Blues faced Tottenham Hotspur and their former manager Jose Mourinho, winning the game at the Stamford Bridge. Olivier Giroud and Marcos Alonso turned into heroes for Chelsea, scoring the winning goals.
