Chelsea team news & predicted line-up vs Bournemouth

In this piece, we take a look at the latest Chelsea team news ahead of their upcoming Premier League clash with Bournemouth.


Chelsea’s Premier League campaign resumes on December 27 when they welcome recently-promoted Bournemouth to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues head into the game on a worrying run of form.

They are winless in their last five league outings, including losing their last three.

As result, Chelsea are 8th in the table and in danger of slipping out of the race for Champions League football.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, have had an ok start to life back in England’s top-flight, picking up 16 points from 15 games so far.
