Chelsea vs Bournemouth

Chelsea vs Bournemouth – Chelsea host Bournemouth at the Stamford Bridge on the Boxing Day fixture of the English Premier League as the league leaders aim to consolidate their position on the top of the table.

Chelsea are six points ahead of the closest competition, as they have forty three points after seventeen games and are favorites to go into the new year with their position at the summit of the league standings intact.

Chelsea won 1-0 against Crystal Palace in their last game, making it a club record eleven wins for Antonio Conte’s men. AFC Bournemouth, tenth in the league table with twenty one points, have won three and lost three of their last six league matches. Their last game ended in a 3-1 loss to Southampton.

Team News

Chelsea will be without their talismanic striker Diego Costa and midfield general N’Golo Kante, two players who have been instrumental in Chelsea’s run and are suspended against Bournemouth, as they picked up their fifth yellow cards in the last game. John Terry has returned to training as has Marco van Ginkel but are unlikely to feature.

Lewis Cook and Andrew Surman are injured while Nathan Ake is ineligible for the visitors.

Chelsea Possible Starting Lineup: Thibaut Courtois, Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Gary Cahill, Victor Moses, Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas, Marcos Alonso, Pedro, Eden Hazard, Michy Batshuayi.

AFC Bournemouth Possible Starting Lineup: Artur Boruc, Adam Smith, Steve Cook, Simon Francis, Charlie Daniels, Harry Arter, Jack Wilshere, Jordon Ibe, Joshua King, Marc Pugh, Benik Afobe.
