Chelsea vs Bournemouth 31 January 2018: EPL Preview and Predictions

Chelsea will be in action on Wednesday as the Blues take on Bournemouth at home at Stamford Bridge. This is a game that Chelsea will be expected to win but as form currently stands, this might be quite a tough task for the reigning champions.

Bournemouth have had a decent run lately and are currently mid-table. This is a good position for the side and they will hope they can improve on that in the weeks to come. This week they are up against Chelsea and this will be a big challenge for the team since they will be away from home and be playing one of the better teams in the competition.

Chelsea knows that these are the games that they must win if they wish to remain in the top 4 and challenge the top teams in the league. At home, they should win but there are problems that they will face. Morata is looking awful, Hazzard is hit and miss while the defenders seem to be in civil war with the manager. This is not a good situation to be in. That being said, I think they will still win this game since they are at home and up against weaker opposition.  

As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a good enough price to bet on Chelsea to win outright and as a result, betting on the outright result is something that I would like to avoid. I think goals are the best option for betting in this game. Chelsea are struggling to score at the moment and with Bournemouth not looking likely to score away at Stamford Bridge, the under 2.5 goals is my prediction.

 

Pick:
Under 2.5 goals
