Bournemouth vs Chelsea: Lineups and LIVE Updates
Can Frank Lampard's men turn a corner in their poor season so far and finish the season strongly?
Bournemouth come into this fixture on the back of an empathic 4-1 victory over Leeds United. This continues their purple patch of late where they have won six of their last nine league games. The Cherries will be hoping to make it three wins on the trot, a feat not achieved since 2018. They have won three of the previous six games against Chelsea in the Premier League.
Chelsea arrive here having lost yet another London derby this season, this time against Mikel Arteta's Arsenal. The Blues have played 33 games and have 39 points through them, sitting tied on points with Bournemouth with a game in hand. The Blues haven't won away to any of the promoted sides this season and will be hoping to not repeat the feat of losing to all three promoted sides away in the same season from 2012-13 season.
