Chelsea travel to Bournemouth in the Premier League this week and the Blues will be looking to bounce back from their humiliating loss against Manchester City in their last game.

Chelsea were unbeaten in the Premier League since the arrival of Guus Hiddink, but the Blues have now crashed to two consecutive losses against Swansea and Manchester City in their last two matches.

The Premier League champions have had a very disappointing season by their standards and will be looking to bounce back with a big win here. Chelsea have nothing to play for in the Premier League anymore and will want to finish as high as possible.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth are out of relegation danger and will want to give their fans something to cheer about this week. After their home defeat against Liverpool, the Cherries will look to take advantage of Chelsea’s inconsistencies here.

Bournemouth managed to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier this season and the Blues will be out for revenge.
