Chelsea will be looking to put a mini Premier League rut behind them at the weekend against a struggling Bournemouth side – with the Blues on a run of three defeats in four league games.
Chelsea are on a high from their midweek Champions League victory and will be looking to put the Cherries to the sword for back-to-back wins at home this week.
Frank Lampard could shake up the Chelsea line up vs Bournemouth with some attacking intent – Reece James could replace César Azpilicueta at right-back to add some intent on the right-hand side, and Mason Mount may replace Mateo Kovacic in midfield, sitting behind Tammy Abraham.
Antonio Rudiger made his return against Lille midweek and is expected to be given a place in the Chelsea XI for the foreseeable future, likely to be alongside Kurt Zouma vs Bournemouth.
Predicted Chelsea line up vs Bournemouth
Defence: Reece James, Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger, Emerson.
Midfield: Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Willian.
Attack: Tammy Abraham.
