Chelsea welcome AFC Bournemouth to Stamford Bridge tonight just a few days after their excellent 3-0 win over Newcastle United in the fourth round of the FA Cup. Indeed the Blues saw their chances of silverware diminish last week thanks to a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg and boss Antonio Conte will be hopeful that his side can make it two wins on the bounce when they entertain the Cherries this evening.
Chelsea have struggled for stability at times this season although they have managed four successive clean sheets in front of the home fans and it is clear that their relative success has been in no small part down to their solidity in defence. As such, we believe that they have what it takes to edge past an unpredictable Bournemouth side tonight and keep the pressure on second-placed Manchester United.
The Cherries head into tonight’s clash on the back of a 1-1 draw with West Ham United although their form on the road has generally been poor of late with four defeats in their last six away matches. Goals have been conceded in abundance and given that they remain dangerously close to the bottom three in the league table they will be desperate to get something for their troubles in West London.
Nevertheless Bournemouth have drawn a blank on the goal-scoring front in two of their last four matches away from home and we don’t envisage them making too much of an impact this evening. With that in mind, we’ll be backing for a low-scoring affair at Stamford Bridge with a Chelsea win and under 2.5 goals looking the value at 14/5 with Betway Free Bets.
