Bournemouth vs Chelsea by Pacifier
Chelsea are back to business as usual as they beat Watford by 4-2, although in fortuitous circumstances and then made defeated Everton in midweek in the Carabao cup by 2-1. They need the points in the premier league as they now sit nine points off top placed Man City and four off 2nd and 3rd placed Man United and Tottenham who play each other in the early kick-off. Chelsea have yet to keep a clean sheet since the injury to Ngolo Kante and will be without him once again for this trip. Victor Moses is also out, but they welcome Drinkwater back from injury as he made his first start against Everton in the cup, although he might have to settle for a place on the bench as Fabregas comes back to the heart of midfield to partner Bakayoko. Morata should replace Batshuayi in the striker role with Pedro and Hazard providing support in a 3-4-2-1 formation. They are expected to settle back in their preferred back three of Azpilicueta, Cahill and David Luiz with Alonso returning to the left wing back position also.
Chelsea won both legs last season quite comfortably with this fixture finishing 3-1 to the away side. A similar outcome could be on the cards here as I expect Bournemouth to attack as they always do which Chelsea will exploit happily. Chelsea are far form tight at the back themselves, conceding in each of their last six games in all competition and in 75% of their away premier league games.
I therefore expect this game to be quite open and with goals in it and I pick the quote on Chelsea winning and over 2.5 match goals currently priced at 2.30 with bet365. This selection would have paid off in 80% of Chelsea away games this season with the exception being the 2-1 loss to Palace.
