Good for Chelsea: Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson has an injury problem

Bournemouth vs Chelsea

Bournemouth welcome Chelsea to the Vitality Stadium on Wednesday night in the Premier League.

It’s been a decent few days for Chelsea in cup competitions.

Last weekend the Blues beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 to book their spot in the FA Cup fifth round.

Chelsea will take on Man United at Stamford Bridge in the next round of the FA Cup.

The win against the Owls came after Chelsea beat Tottenham on penalties to progress through to the Carabao Cup final.

Man City will take on the Pensioners in the showpiece.

Callum Wilson has an injury problem

On Tuesday, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe faced the press before the Chelsea match.

In bad news for the Cherries, Howe confirmed that star forward Callum Wilson may miss the match against the Blues.

Howe has confirmed that Wilson has a knee problem and he’s a doubt for the midweek clash.

Chris Mepham & Dom Solanke

Bournemouth have been one of the more active Premier League sides in the January transfer market.

21-year-old defender Chris Mepham has joined the Cherries from Brentford. Mepham could make his debut for Bournemouth tomorrow night.

Dom Solanke has also moved to the south coast in January. The England attacker moved from Liverpool earlier in the month.

Solanke is still on the sidelines with injury, and he isn’t expected to make his Bournemouth bow until February.
