Chelsea are looking to extend their winning streak to four games, but they face a very tough opponent on Saturday as unbeaten Bournemouth come to visit Stamford Bridge. Last season the Cherries snatched a memorable 3-0 victory against the Blues in London, with Callum Wilson, Junior Stanislas and Nathan Ake on the score sheet. Moreover, Bournemouth have won on two of their last four trips to Stamford Bridge in all competitions. Overall, Chelsea have won five of the last six direct matches in all competitions.
Chelsea are enjoying life under new manager Maurizio Sarri, they started the season with three consecutive wins and their level of play seems to be getting better and better. Moreover, two of their three wins were away from home and the only home win was against Arsenal. Last time out the Blues won 2-1 at Newcastle in a match that they dominated from start to finish. Maurizio Sarri will probably name the same starting eleven as Cesc Fabregas is his only injury concern ahead of Saturday's match.
Bournemouth had a great start to the season, they are still unbeaten and have won three of their four matches in all competitions. Last week they fought back from 2-0 down to secure a 2-2 home draw against Everton, while this week they defeated MK Dons 3-0 in the League Cup. Diego Rico and Jefferson Lerma got the chance to make their debuts for the Cherries in that match but they are unlikely to make the starting line up on Saturday. Lys Mousset twisted his ankle in the League Cup match and joins Junior Stanislas and Marc Pugh on the injured list for this match.
Chelsea: Arrizabalaga - Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso - Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic - Pedro, Morata, Hazard
Bournemouth: Begovic - Smith, S. Cook, Ake, Daniels - Brooks, L. Cook, Surman, Fraser - Wilson, King
My prediction: Chelsea to win 2-1, it will be a tough match for Maurizio Sarri and his men.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Chelsea win - 1.28
Draw - 5.75
Bournemouth win - 9.00
