Chelsea will be without Diego Costa for the first time this season in a Premier League game when Chelsea play Bournemouth on Boxing Day but Liverpool legend Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to win Bournemouth despite losing Costa.

“If Chelsea beat Bournemouth on Boxing Day they will set a club record of 12 successive league wins and it is hard to see Eddie Howe’s side getting anything from the game,” Owen told Bet Victor.

“The loss of the outstanding Diego Costa through suspension is a blow to the league leaders but this Blues side have a winning mentality and it would be a surprise if the Cherries stopped them in their tracks.”
