EPL: Bournemouth vs Chelsea

Chelsea and Bournemouth lock horns today

We all know that they have lost to Wolves, Brighton, Brentford and the Gunners in the league

And surely lost both legs of their Champions League quarter-final tie with Real Madrid in the last month.

As a result, they head into this Saturday’s clash with Bournemouth

With only nine points above the relegation zone and they could drop to 14th if results do not go their way.

Chelsea will be work hard to take three points today

Normally, Chelsea were outclassed by Premier League title hopefuls Arsenal on Tuesday night and things could go from bad to worse for the wounded Blues when they travel to Bournemouth this weekend.

Their 3-1 defeat to Arsenal was Chelsea’s sixth successive loss in all competitions since Frank Lampard took charge and the situation at the club is looking desolate.

That is despite a transfer outlay of more than £600 million this season and it is fair to say the club has had a tough time of it under the co-ownership of Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali so far.

And now it would still take a lot for Chelsea to be relegated given the inconsistencies of the teams around them but to even be in the conversation for the drop at this stage of the season is astonishing.

Of course defensively they have been lacking, having fallen 3-0 down after only 34 minutes against a rampant Arsenal last time out, but it is arguably in the final third where their most pressing problems lie.
