Bournemouth vs. Chelsea’s Preview: Prediction, Channel To Watch

Bournemouth’s manager, Andoni Iraola, had some time during the international break to think about the last-minute equalizer that prevented his team from securing their first Premier League (PL) victory of the season against Brentford, resulting in a 2-2 draw.

He openly acknowledged that his team faced difficulties in the closing moments of the match.

Currently, they have one fewer point than they did after four games last season and two fewer than during their relegation campaign in 2019/20.

The Cherries are in dire need of gaining points when playing at home. Their recent record at home in the PL has been poor, with just one win in their last seven games (one draw and five losses).

This streak includes a 3-1 defeat to Chelsea last season, which coincided with the crowning of King Charles III.

However, their chances of an immediate improvement look bleak, given that they have only managed to win two head-to-head encounters on their home turf, while suffering six losses and recording one draw.

If Iraola was dissatisfied during the international break, Mauricio Pochettino, his counterpart, couldn’t have been any happier. His team suffered a 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest just before the break.

Pochettino’s mood worsened when his new signing, Roméo Lavia, sustained an ankle injury, adding to the list of injured players that already included Wesley Fofana and Christopher Nkunku.

Despite Chelsea’s slow start to the season with just one PL victory, a draw, and two losses, there’s optimism within the club.

Ben Chilwell expressed confidence in the talented squad and the managerial skills of their coach, believing that things will improve soon.

Chelsea aims to avoid the rare occurrence of losing four consecutive league away games, which hasn’t happened since December 2000.

Player to watch for during Bournemouth vs. Chelsea

Players to keep an eye on include David Brooks, who has scored in three of his last four appearances for both his club and country, with each goal coming after the 50th minute.

Enzo Fernández, who has achieved four consecutive Flashscore match ratings of at least 7.5 and scored twice during those games, might have a chance to score his first PL goal for Chelsea.

Statistics

An interesting statistic to note is that Chelsea has not trailed at halftime in the PL this season (with one win and three draws), while Bournemouth has not held a halftime lead (with two draws and two losses).
