Chelsea vs Bournemouth
Chelsea are set to play host to Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
The Blues head into the clash on a bit of a poor run in the Premier League.
Chelsea have lost three of their last five league outings and the gap between themselves and 5th place has been reduced to just five points.
However, Frank Lampard’s side should have no problems picking up a win this weekend.
Bournemouth are in dismal form with Eddie Howe’s side losing their last five league clashes.
As a result, the Cherries are down to 15th in the league and just one point from safety.

Lampard on transfer rumours
Ahead of the Bournemouth clash, Lampard held his pre-match press conference on Friday.
During the press conference, Lampard spoke about Chelsea and their transfer business.
The Blues are now able to spend in the upcoming winter window after their transfer ban was reduced.
And as per Goal, three of the players most heavily linked to Chelsea recently have been Wilfried Zaha, Nathan Ake and Ben Chilwell.
Lampard was asked about the aforementioned trio at his latest presser and had this to say:
“We want the top calibre of player that can improve us.
“I won’t even hone in on those three.
“I have said it over the last couple of weeks. I am happy with the squad but we have to improve if we can.
“It is not just my business, in the modern day since I have been in management and at most clubs it is a joint-effort. We have a scouting system, the board and myself.
“I can put forward a lot and we will work together. I will recommend players that can improve us, fit with the style and the way we want to go and come in really hungry. I want people who come here wanting to win and to be a Chelsea player.” As quoted by Goal.
