Chelsea is simply great this season when it comes to defence, and they have lost only 2 goals in the last 10 matches, winning all of them although recently they are not scoring much, and last 3 matches finished with narrow 1:0 victories for the Blues. For this match the task seems to not be that tough, because Bournemouth is not much of a threat in away matches, but Chelsea will have two major missings today. Diego Costa, who is teams best scorer, and league best scorer at this point (13 goals), but they will also miss N'Golo Kante, who is doing great work in defence and regulating pace of the match. I think that without both of them, it will be a tougher task to break Bournemouth here.
As for the Bournemouth, their away performance is pretty bad (1-2-5), with just 7 goals scored in 8 matches. In away matches they are not so fixed on scoring goals, and I think that if they come out with defensive attitude, it won't be easy for Chelsea to break the deadlock. And even if they do, a large number of goals doesn't seem to be likely, bearing in mind their recent results.
