How to watch the Bournemouth vs. Chelsea match?
The broadcast of this match will be on chelseafc.com (official website of Chelsea FC). VAVEL will have a live broadcast of the match.
Key player of Chelsea
Choosing a standout player at Chelsea is quite complicated due to the big names that appear in their squad, but, if we had to choose one, that would be N’Golo Kanté. The French midfielder did not have a good start to the season, but ended it in the best possible way. His mere presence on the field gave the team security, mobility, speed and intelligence. He was undoubtedly one of the best of the Chelsea UCL champions.
Key player of Bournemouth
The 24-year-old David Brooks is the most valuable player in the Cherries’ squad. The player who was at Euro 2020 with Wales, played 39 games last season with Bournemouth, where he scored 6 goals and provided 7 assists.
Chelsea: absent due to injury
In the London team, the player who will not be able to play due to a thigh injury he sustained while playing the Euro with Denmark is Andreas Christensen. He is expected to return in August.
Bournemouth: absent due to injury
Player Lewis Cook is out of tomorrow’s game with a cruciate ligament injury. He is expected to return in November of this year 2021
History between the two teams
Bournemouth and Chelsea have met 16 times, with a balance in favor of the Blues who have 10 wins against 5 of the Cherries, and only 1 draw. The last meeting between the two was on February 29, 2020 with a score 2-2, for the 28th matchday of the 2019/2020 Premier League.
Chelsea: the European champion now wants the Premier League
The Blues, last champions of the UEFA Champions League, now want to go for the Premier League, a tournament they have not won since the 2016/2017 season. The team led by Tomas Tuchel finished 4th, with 67 points, of the previous Premier, but, the team did not start that season with the German at the helm (Lampard was the coach who started the 20/21), maybe things are different for the London team that wants to add another league to its palmarès.
Bournemouth: hungry for revenge
Scott Parker’s team managed to qualify for the English Football League Play-offs last season, however, they lost to Brentford (the team that ended up being promoted) by a 3-2 aggregate score, taking away the possibility of returning to the Premier League after two seasons in the second tier. Will this be the return?
The match will be played at the Vitality Stadium
The Dean Court or Vitality Stadium will be in charge of hosting this great match. It is AFC Bournemouth’s stadium, located in Bournemouth, England, which has a capacity of 11,464 spectators. This place was inaugurated in 1910 and is named Dean Court in honor of the Cooper-Dean family, who donated their land where the stadium was built.
