Chelsea to Win

Bournemouth will face Chelsea in another match from the 5th round in the Premier League.
Bournemouth vs Chelsea Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Bournemouth vs Chelsea will be a curious game and we have big expectations. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
Bournemouth are one of the obvious weakest teams in the league this season. However, they have been scoring a lot more goals than expected lately. They scored past West Ham, Liverpool, and Brentford already. Chelsea, as you probably know, have serious problems in defense. We think that Bournemouth will score at least one goal here. We are even worried about Chelsea's attack. They have really not been at the level they should be at this point.
Match Result Prediction: Chelsea to Win
It is time for Chelsea to step it up a bit and win some points. They will hardly get many better chances on the road this season and they should have what it takes to beat Bournemouth. They have won on multiple occasions against this teem in recent seasons too. Chelsea cannot afford more mistakes this early in the season. The main problem is that they have a lot of injured players but even like that, they should be the better team.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Chelsea
We definitely think that this game will be closer than it should be. Chelsea are out of shape and they will be the away team here. When we compare the Bournemouth vs Chelsea line ups, the visitors should have a huge advantage even with the nine injuries they have right now. The 2-1 scoreline seems like a great option for Chelsea here and we do not expect them to score more than twice.
Bournemouth vs Chelsea Team Previews
Bournemouth have not had much success since the start of the season, although they won some points against strong teams like West Ham and Brentford. They have made some improvements over the summer and their attack is far more effective than it was last year. The main problem remains in the defense line. They simply concede too many goals and we do not think that they will have a chance against any of the top clubs.
Chelsea continued to disappoint and lost against Nottingham Forest last round. They have won a single game since the start of the season and this is the perfect opportunity for a better performance against a struggling team. Chelsea have a bunch of injured players once again, so they will not have their optimal squad available. Nevertheless, they should be the stronger side here.
