Bournemouth will be desperate for their first win of the new Premier League season as they host Chelsea at the Vitality Stadium this Sunday.
Neither the home team nor the visitors had an encouraging start to the new season under the leadership of the new managers. Bournemouth have conceded two defeats and settled for two draws in four Premier League games so far.
They come into Sunday’s clash with the Blues after a 2-2 draw with Brentford in their last outing.
After Mathias Jensen fired Brentford into the lead in the seventh minute, Bournemouth hit back with goals from Dominic Solanke and David Brooks.
The Cherries came agonizingly close to their first three points of the new season but Bryan Mbeumo thwarted their plans by finding the back post in the third minute of second-half stoppage time.
But it was an all-round encouraging performance from the Cherries and the fact that they gave Brentford a run for their money in hostile territory is commendable.
Meanwhile, Chelsea went into the international break after losing 1-0 to Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge. Former Manchester United striker Anthony Elanga scored the winner for Forest in the 48th minute as Steve Cooper’s men held on for a valuable three points.
Chelsea aren’t playing terrible football but they really need to get better at putting away their chances. New signing Nicolas Jackson has been guilty of missing a number of chances in the opening weeks of the new campaign.
The Blues’ only win so far has come against newly promoted Luton Town and they will be tested by the Cherries this Sunday.
