Chelsea Prediction – Can Chelsea pick up EPL form?

Although the hosts secured a 2-1 home win against French club, Lille, during the week in the Champions League, it wasn’t an entirely convincing performance from The Blues as they now turn their attentions back to the Premier League this Saturday when they entertain Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.

On the domestic front, Chelsea have suffered 3 defeats out of their last 4 matches overall in the top flight with losses to Manchester City, West Ham and Everton, and although they registered a 2-1 win over Aston Villa last time out on home turf, their current league position of 4th could come under further pressure if they fail to win this afternoon.

Results at home have continued to pick up after a slow start to the season which saw Chelsea fail to win any of their first 3 matches at home of the season, but an overall record now of 4-2-2 11/7 is a vast improvement upon their start of draws with Leicester City and Sheffield United along with the defeat by Liverpool.

Chelsea have lost just twice in their last 17 matches at home in the Premier League but have won by a 3+goal margin in just 3 of these 17 matches, so Bournemouth have a chance of keeping things reasonably tight here.

Bournemouth Prediction – Can Bournemouth pull away from bottom three?

It looks a tough ask to get a result away at Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this Saturday for Eddie Howe’s side despite the recent problems Chelsea have had in recent times in the Premier League, as Bournemouth have lost their last 5 matches on the trot.

Defeats to Newcastle United, Wolves, Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Liverpool have prevented Bournemouth from pulling further away from the relegation zone, and indeed, the Cherries have managed to register just 1 win out of their last 10 matches overall in the top flight.

That rare success came in the shape of a 1-0 win at home against Manchester United, but although recent results have been poor for the south coast side, they’ve lost by a 3-goal margin or more in just 1 of these last 10 matches which was a 3-0 loss at home to Liverpool.

On the road, Bournemouth’s away record stands at an ordinary looking 2-1-5 9/12 and includes losing 4 of their last 5 matches on their travels, but none of their 8 away matches have seen The Cherries lose by 3 goals or more.


Key-Facts – Chelsea vs Bournemouth

  • None of Bournemouth’s 8 away matches have seen the visitors lose by 3 goals or more
  • Chelsea have suffered 3 defeats out of their last 4 matches overall in the EPL
  • Chelsea have won by a 3+goal margin in just 3 of their last 17 home matches


Betting Tips Verdict

In short, Chelsea should win this one but even if they do, the margin of victory may be smaller than many anticipate.
