Chelsea vs Bournemouth Betting Tips – Premier League, 14th December 3.00pm

The Blues have had a few bumps in the league recently, having lost three of their last four played.

Chelsea News and Form – Can Chelsea beat Bournemouth at the Bridge?

The Blues just need to start finding a little more momentum after taking a W1 L3 record in their last four games. Last weekend a defensively shambolic display at Goodison Park saw them tumble to a 3-1 loss against Everton. The home record in the top flight for Chelsea this season is W4 D2 L2 and they have won four of their last five at the Bridge, losing the other game in that sequence against West Ham in a big shock upset.

Chelsea have now taken only one clean sheet in their last seven league games, home and away combined. Chelsea have averaged 1.4 goals per home game this season, which is a long way short of their record of 2.5 goals per game on their travels. Chelsea have been much better defensively at home, however, averaging under a goal per game against at Stamford bridge. The Blues have lost only 3 of their last 30 Premier League home games. Just 38% of Chelsa’s home games in this campaign have gone over 2.5 goals.

  • Chelsea have won four of their last five home games

 

Bournemouth News and Form – Can Cherries stop the rot by beating Chelsea?

The Cherries are seriously heading in the wrong direction. A 3-0 loss at home against Liverpool was their fifth straight defeat. It was the fourth time in those five games that Bournemouth had conceded at last two goals as well. So they are really having a tough time of things at the back. It hasn’t exactly been working out for them in attack either as the Cherries have failed to score in four of their last eight fixtures. The away record that they have claimed is W2 D1 L5 this season.

It has been three straight away defeats for them, however, a run which started with a loss at Newcastle. The Cherries have only come up with 9 goals in their 8 road games and have so far managed just one away clean sheet. In each of their last three away games, the Cherries have lost by one goal margin. They have some big injury doubts for this one including strikers Joshua King and Callum Wilson. Bournemouth go into the weekend only one point above the drop zone. That’s how much they have fallen.

Chelsea vs Bournemouth Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues can dig out the three points in this one. Anyone can score against Chelsea at the moment, even the Cherries who haven’t been very prolific lately. But their defence has crumbled badly. Home win & both teams to score.
