Bournemouth will face Chelsea at Vitality Stadium at 24th Round of English Premier League. Bournemouth against Chelsea is always the match with big interest after their previous matches in English Premier League. Review our thoughts on this match here below.

 

Bournemouth

Bournemouth showing great football this season. They play really good football at home ground and are likely to score goals while playing at Vitality Stadium. This year Bournemouth is sixth at Premier League by points gained at home ground.

This season there was a lot of talks about the leading players of this club. Several football players want to buy football grandees of England and not only, although now several leaders are injured. S. Francis, L. Cook, and D. Solanke are injured and will not help the team to fight with maximum strength.

Bournemouth is great at counter attacks, creating scoring chances and coming back from losing position, however, they are weak at defending against counter-attacks, avoiding individual errors and defending against long shots.

 

Chelsea

Chelsea started the season very confidently and well, but in the middle of the season, they lost form an advantage. Now London club is doing everything to return to its former form and find a more suitable striker for the team. It is already known that the Argentine Gonzalo Higuain moved to London on loan and played his first match for Chelsea in the English FA Cup.

This match should be played on maximum for Chelsea because they are fully fit and prepared for taking 3 points from Bournemouth. They are very great at creating chances using through balls, creating chances through individual skill and defending set pieces. London club showing all attacking abilities, moreover G. Higuain should strengthen the attack to take all chances to score. The Blues are weak at aerial duels and stopping opponent form creating chances, so the defense should prepare more serious for the upcoming match.
