Pochettino's Chelsea Eye Victory to Bounce Back After Setback: Bournemouth Awaits



Chelsea Seek Redemption After Nottingham Forest Upset: Clash with Bournemouth Looms


Chelsea FC are eager to rebound after their surprising 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge. Their next challenge takes them to Bournemouth on Sunday, as manager Mauricio Pochettino continues to fine-tune his starting lineup.



Pochettino acknowledges the mounting pressure, with questions arising following two defeats [West Ham and Nottingham Forest] in four games. The West London Blues view this match as a must-win, given their extensive summer roster changes. Additionally, it has been quite some time since Chelsea registered a clean sheet in an away Premier League match, with nine consecutive league travels and no clean slate since a 0-0 draw at Liverpool in January.

Match Details:

- Date: Sunday, September 17, 2023

- Kick-off Time: 2:00 pm BST

- Venue: Vitality Stadium (Dean Court) in Bournemouth

- Where to Watch: The game will be broadcast on Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League, and Sky Sports Ultra HDR.



Bournemouth vs. Chelsea Team News:**

- Bournemouth welcome back Lewis Cook from injury, while Adam Smith and Marcus Tavernier have returned to training.

- Potential debutants for Bournemouth include Luis Sinisterra and Tyler Adams.

- Chelsea face an injury-laden lineup but expects Reece James to make a return, with Armando Broja likely to be on the bench. Mykhailo Mudryk is also expected to be fit.

- Wesley Fofana, Christopher Nkunku, Romeo Lavia, and Benoit Badiashile are among the notable absentees for the Blues.

Prediction:

While Bournemouth have shown promise under new management, Chelsea boasts superior quality and is determined to secure victory. The prediction favours Chelsea to win 3-2.
