Our seven-point advantage at the top of the table was restored following Chelsea’s 3-1 victory against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday evening.
An own-goal from Bournemouth defender Smith, a brilliant goal from Eden Hazard and a wonderful free-kick from Marcos Alonso was enough to give Chelsea all three points against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Ex-Tottenham midfielder-turned-pundit Jermaine Jenas revealed after watching Chelsea win Bournemouth 3-1 on Saturday that Chelsea are most effective and very dangerous when they don’t have the ball.
Jenas revealed opponents think they are in control when they have possession when in reality it’s Chelsea who are in control.
“I personally think Chelsea are most effective when they don’t have the ball,” Jenas said on BBC’s Match of the Day.
“Yes they can break teams down and they have done that on numerous occasions at Stamford Bridge with the unbelievable players they’ve got.
“But when they don’t have it, I worry for teams. Teams think they’re in control.
“It’s the numbers they can fly forward with.
“Bournemouth were probably thinking ‘we’ve got this here, were in control, we can probe and find the moment’, but the reality is Chelsea are the ones in control.”
