Contributor’s Pick

According to Chelsea vs AFC Bournemouth H2H Stats, Chelsea have won four and lost one of their previous five matches against AFC Bournemouth, but these two clubs have never faced each other before in the English League Cup.

Chelsea are unbeaten at home since their defeat to Manchester City in September, winning six of the following eight games at home. In spite of their third-place standing in the league, Chelsea have been in decent form and will be the favorites tonight.

A 1-0 win for Antonio Conte’s side is the most likely result but complacency will be Chelsea’s biggest enemy in the quarter-finals.
