Chelsea 2-0 Bournemouth: Match report, player ratings, fan reaction & more

Chelsea faced off with Bournemouth in a Premier League clash on Tuesday evening.

Chelsea headed into the match on a poor run of form that had seen them slip down to 8th in the division ahead of the Premier League return.

As a result, Graham Potter and co. will have been desperate to grab three points on Tuesday.

And when all was said and done, Chelsea came away with the three points.

Chelsea started the better of the two sides and had a penalty shout 11 minutes in but it was waved away by the ref and VAR did not overturn the decision.

But Chelsea would take the lead 15 minutes in. Mason Mount played in Raheem Sterling who put the ball across the box for an onrushing Kai Havertz whose shot went under the keeper.

Chelsea’s pressure continued after the opener, with Mason Mount getting their second goal. Mount found Zakaria in the box, with the ball eventually coming back out to the midfielder who curled in a lovely effort.

Chelsea’s grip on the game was loosened somewhat in the second 45 but they still largely kept Bournemouth at bay. Reece James was also taken off after 50 minutes due to an injury, though it did not appear to be anything too serious.

Despite this, Bournemouth were unable to really test the west Londoners during the remainder of the game.
