Chelsea 13/20 to beat Bournemouth in Saturday’s Premier League showdown
Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea to beat Bournemouth
Odds: 13/20 @ Bet365
The Premier League continues this weekend with a glut of important games that will have a huge impact upon the teams in the league for the season to come. With Manchester City extending their lead at the top, all of the league’s best side are in desperate need of points to keep pace with them, while the bottom three cannot afford any more defeats as they look to keep their fans onside. With this in mind, Chelsea travel to face Bournemouth in the late kick-off on Saturday.
The Cherries have struggled massively this year and their bright campaign last campaign has made way for a season of strife and difficulties this time around. Eddie Howe’s men have managed to pick up two wins in their last five games along with two defeats and one loss. While their two victories have helped to revive their survival hopes, they will be well aware that six defeats in nine games is an awful return. Howe needs to remedy his teams awful scoring record which has seen them score just six goals as they continue to struggle this campaign.
Chelsea, by contrast, are in desperate need of a win to continue their title challenge. 16 points from nine games has seen them fall nine points behind Manchester City, but the Blues can cut the gap between themselves and Manchester United or Tottenham, who play one another this weekend. What Antonio Conte will be desperate to fix is their uncharacteristically leaky defence, with Thibaut Courtois picking the ball out of the back of his net 10 times already. Following a good win against Watford last weekend, Bet365 have given the Blues odds of 13/20 to beat Bournemouth.
