The Cherries have recovered some momentum after a terrible start to the season and, thanks to the splendid work of the manager, could well beat the drop. After two successful and thoroughly uplifting seasons in the Premier League, 2017-18 has been a somewhat disappointing and very difficult campaign to endure for Eddie Howe and his Bournemouth side- not because they have crashed and burned, but because it has become apparent that so many of Howe’s stalwarts, and indeed Howe’s ideas are past their sell-by-date.
Morata, William, David Luiz, are out. Courtois and Fabregas are expected to be back and probably starting. New left back Emerson is probably not eligible yet, having signed late in the day on Tuesday.
The main thing is who will play center forward. Batshuayi has been deputizing well enough for Morata in recent games, but he is probably on loan for the second- half of the season and its logistically impossible for him to both play in this game and complete a move especially to BVB since the Bundesliga’s registration deadline is 6 hours before the 11 PM GMT windows slamming of the Premier League.
Even if the Chelsea were to complete the signing of Olivier Giroud before kick- off, he would be ineligible since players have to be registered with the Premier League by midday of the day previous to be eligible to play. Conte does not like throwing in players immediately either see Ross Barkley’s situation, who’s more or less fit physically but is still lacking in the – Tactical aspect.
AFC Bournemouth Team
The Cherries are facing few issues with veteran striker Jermain Defoe and defender Tyrone Mings missing in action.
Bournemouth is unbeaten in their last five in the Premier League but those two wins are their only two in the dozen league games since thanks, giving. They may be 13th at the moment, but that’s only good for a two-point cushion above the bottom three. Basically, everybody in the lower half of the table is batting relegation danger this season.
