Bournemouth had lost four games in a row heading to the game against Chelsea, and it was expected that the Blues would have an easy ride to inflict another defeat on the Cherries.

Chelsea had 68% ball possession and had 18 shots against the Cherries, but Eddie Howe’s side managed to win the game as a late looping ball from Dan Gosling gave the away side the three points.

A delighted Cherries manager Howe admitted hoping his side’s change in fortunes can spark a run of positive results, admitting that his team needed a slice of luck.

“We just needed a slice of luck, for something to bounce our way,” said Howe.

“That could be the moment that turns our fortunes, gives us belief and confidence again. I saw in us a really good team in the second half.”

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has now admitted that his team must find a way to play against organised and compact teams.

He said: “This is the reality – if we’re not at our best, if we haven’t got enough to break teams down that are organised, if players with their individual qualities and personality can’t do something to beat teams that are organised, then we need to find another way.”
