Chelsea travel to Dean Court to take on Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth, who haven’t enjoyed the best of starts to the season, partly owing to their rigorous opening set of fixtures. Nevertheless, they remain a good footballing side that give any top team a run for their money. We also say hello once again to Nathan Aké, who left Chelsea for Bournemouth after 5 years at the club.
Here we go.
