Antonio Conte’s men have been shaky defensively this term and will have it all to do when they travel to the south coast

Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea are away as they take on Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium in Saturday’s late kickoff.

The Cherries sealed an impressive 2-1 win at Stoke City for their first away victory of the season. Eddie Howe’s side haven’t been at their best so far as they languish in 19th place and will have their work cut out to secure back to back victories which Bet365 quotes at (5.80).

The Blues season hasn’t been going as they would have liked, losing three games already, two less than the whole of their title winning season.  Chelsea sits in fourth place, nine points behind leaders Manchester City and are favourites for victory here at (1.61).

Eddie Howe Bournemouth

The same firm offers odds of (4.20) for both teams to share the spoils come fulltime.

Chelsea have won four of their five previous away games against Bournemouth and look good to head back to Stamford Bridge without tasting defeat at odds of (1.25).

Antonio Conte’s men haven’t been solid at the back this term, already conceding 10 goals from their nine league games. Punters who dare can back Bournemouth to score in both halves at huge odds of (5.00).

Michy Batshuayi Chelsea

This also means both teams to find the back of the net is a favoured outcome at (1.66).

Michy Batshuayi has shown credentials to be super substitute for the Blues and this is evident as he’s scored six goals from the bench since last season. The Belgian international is tipped by Bet365 to score anytime at (1.80).
