Chelsea host Bournemouth on Saturday as Maurizio Sarri looks to maintain his 100% record in the Premier League.
After defeating Newcastle in their own backyard last week, Chelsea racked up nine points out of a possible nine. It’s been the perfect start for Sarri in SW6.
A home fixture against Bournemouth, on paper, provides Chelsea with a great chance to make it four wins out of four. If you’ve been paying attention in recent years, though, you’ll know it’s not that straightforward.
Bournemouth have beaten Chelsea at home twice in the past three years. Though we were a team in turmoil both times they visited the Bridge, past results serve as evidence that we can’t afford to take them for granted.
After our star-studded midfield played Newcastle off the park on Sunday, it would be a questionable decision for Sarri to change anything in that department.
Chelsea fans have called for David Luiz to be dropped after his recent showings, but we expect Sarri to keep the faith in the Brazilian.
Here’s how we predict Chelsea will lineup in full. What do you think, Blues?
Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Rudiger, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Willian, Hazard, Morata
