Kick-off: Saturday, October 28, 2017. 16:30 GMT

Venue: Vitality Stadium

It’s Match Week 10, and the Blues will be away at 19th placed Eddie Howe’s Side, Bournemouth.

Bournemouth have endured a bad start to the season and might be involved in a relegation battle this season as they are 19th on the table and have picked up only 7 points from 9 games.

In the Cherries last six league games, they have won two, drawn one and lost three.

Chelsea have won three games, lost two and drawn once in their last six league games.

While Chelsea beat Bournemouth home and away last season, Eddie Howe’s men gave the Blues a shock defeat at Stamford Bridge two seasons ago.

Chelsea and Bournemouth have met each other 9 times, and Bournemouth have only won Chelsea twice in their history with Chelsea winning the remaining 7 games.

The Blues lost their first Premier League game against the Cherries, at Stamford Bridge in December 2015. Chelsea’s only previous loss to Bournemouth came in the second tier on 3 September 1988.

Eden Hazard has scored four goals in as many league games against Bournemouth, with three of those in the Vitality Stadium.

My prediction: Bournemouth 0 vs 2 Chelsea
