Chelsea’s golden run seem to be over, as they have lost three of their previous four games in the competition. However, they do have a chance to get back into track, considering they are at Stamford Bridge this Saturday, and are hosting a Bournemouth side that have lost their last five PL matches in a row.

Chelsea vs Bournemouth Prediction
Chelsea were on the road the last match-day, and tried their best to defeat their hosts, Everton. But despite relentless effort, the Blues were not able to satisfactorily conclude their road trip.
The Toffees found the back of the net right away in the 5th minute, and added two more later in the second half. In return, the guests could slot in a single goal, and thus the game ended 3-1, in favor of the hosts.
In the meanwhile, Bournemouth were defeated at home by potential champions Liverpool, the prior game week. The frontline of the hosts were completely kept silent by Virgil van Dijk and company, and the Reds recorded a 0-3 victory on the road.
At present, take into consideration the desperation of Frank Lampard’s men to get back into their groove. After their impressive run, they are facing some minor stumbles, and this weekend encounter seems the perfect opportunity to register a massive win, and get their confidence back.
It definitely helps that Bournemouth are at present the worst team in the competition – as per recent form. They have lost their last five matches in the PL. The team conceded twice or more in four of their previous five games, and failed to score in the prior two.
In addition, they were winless in ten of their last eleven overall fixtures, and are on a winless run of six away from home. Do note that, Bournemouth failed to score in four of their preceding six matches on the road as well.
Importantly, the Blues were unbeaten in 16 of their last 20 home fixtures, and they won four of the prior h2h meetings at this venue. Also understand that the hosts kept clean sheets in the past two h2h clashes here, while scoring twice or more in three of the preceding five.
Likely, expect a convincing win for Chelsea this Saturday, which will at least bring a temporary respite for the restless fans.
