Chelsea will host Bournemouth on Boxing Day, a league game that Chelsea would want to take all 3 points to solidify their position at the top of the table.
The last time these two sides met at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea were beaten by Bournemouth 1-0, but that’s something Antonio Conte and his men wouldn’t want to happen this time around.
However, history favours Chelsea on Boxing Day fixtures, as the Blues haven’t lost a Boxing Day game for the past 13 years. Since the 4-2 loss to Charlton Athletic back in 2003, Chelsea have never lost a Boxing Day fixture.
In the last 4 Boxing Day fixtures, Chelsea have won 3 and drawn just once (last season’s 2-2 draw against Watford).
Chelsea have never had it bad on Boxing Day in a very long time, and will play for a win against Bournemouth on Monday.
