Former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov has backed Chelsea to outplay Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, and the former Premier League star has backed Chelsea to win this game 2-0.
Chelsea have struggled to keep clean sheets this season, but Berbatov insists that Chelsea have enough firepower to beat a struggling Bournemouth side.
He told BetVictor: “Bournemouth have lost five in a row leading up to their trip to Stamford Bridge. Eddie Howe is one of the Premier League’s most highly-rated young managers and his team’s slump is a big test of his skills.
“They’ve had some luck at Stamford Bridge over the years but I expect Frank Lampard’s young team to outplay them and win fairly comfortably.”
With the race for top four getting stronger by the day, Chelsea must target all three points against the Cherries.
