Chelsea were well beaten at Stamford Bridge as Bournemouth embarrassed the Blues to a 3-0 defeat much to the frustration of the home fans.

Antonio Conte who watched his side slump in the second-half of the game admitted that he saw a difficult game coming, which he predicted in is pre-match press conference.

He said after the game: “Tough night but I predicted this tough night. To have this capacity to look forward and if you remember it would be very tough for a lot of reasons. It happened, it happened, now we have to move on and see the next game.”

Asked if Michy Batshuayi would have made a difference in the game, Conte responded: “Now it will be very simple to find excuses, but this is not the right way. We made a lot of mistakes, together. When we win it will be together, lose together.”
