Bournemouth vs Chelsea

Chelsea are set to travel to Bournemouth on Saturday, as they look to bounce back from their 3-0 hammering at the hands of Bayern Munich earlier this week.

The Blues’ last league outing saw them clinch a crucial victory over capital rivals Tottenham.

But despite seeing off then-5th placed Spurs, Chelsea are still close to slipping out of the top-four.

The London outfit are just three points above Manchester United, who have a superior goal difference.

So, Chelsea need at least a point to ensure that they remain in 4th spot this weekend.

Chelsea duo to miss Bournemouth

Frank Lampard would hold his pre-Bournemouth press conference on Friday.

During the presser, Lampard gave updates on four Chelsea players.

Long-term absentee Christian Pulisic is still injured, as is N’Golo Kante. It was reported earlier this month that the Frenchman will be out for around three weeks.

Lampard also stated on Friday that the recently-returned Tammy Abraham, who reportedly pulled up in the post-Bayern warmdown, is also injured.

The English tactician then stated that Callum Hudson-Odoi is not fit:

“[Christian] Pulisic is injured. Kante is injured, Abraham is injured. [Hudson-Odoi] is not fit.

“We are trying to find a solution with Tammy. It’s the same.

“At the moment he is not doing anything active for a couple of days. But we don’t know the length.

“[Pulisic] has been longer. It was to be a lot less. But I had a similar injury when I was a player, so I can sympathise. I know it can be a delicate injury.” As quoted by football.london.
