New Chelsea signing Gonzalo Higuain could make his English Premier League debut against Bournemouth. Maurizio Sarri has seen his team qualify for the League Cup final and they are doing well in other competitions too. But it is the league that they have stuttered a bit after a fine start and the arrival of one a world class striker can help them finish the season well. Bournemouth have won just three out of the last thirteen EPL games and do not look like side that can trouble Chelsea one bit.
Eden Hazard will come back to the starting eleven after being given a day off in the FA Cup tie. The departure of Alvaro Morata means the Belgian skipper will join Willian and Gonzalo Higuain to form a new dynamic front three. Callum Hudson-Odoi does not want to play for the Blues and despite handing in a transfer request, he could feature on the bench. N’Golo Kante and Jorginho have failed to stamp their authority as a pair in several games this season and their Italian manager would want to see more effort from the duo who are incredible individual talents.
Bournemouth have been dealt a huge blow with Callum Wilson a major doubt for the game having sustained a knee injury in the last game. The England international is a key figure in the Bournemouth set up with the crucial goals he gets for his team. New signing Chris Mepham could play his first game for the club but Dominic Solanke still remains a few mils off the pace in terms of fitness. Talks of Nathan Ake leaving the club have been dismissed by manager Edi Howe who insists the player is fully focussed on beating Chelsea.
Having beaten Bournemouth twice already this season, Chelsea will have no problems making it three in a row in front of a capacity audience at the Stamford Bridge.
