Bournemouth-Chelsea: latest team news and predicted line-ups

28 October at 12:50
Eddie Howe’s AFC Bournemouth will be hoping to build on successive wins at Stoke in the league and at home to Middlesbrough when they host Antonio Conte’s Chelsea, who themselves will be looking to add to their own successive league and cup wins against Watford and Everton respectively.

Chelsea boast a squad in robust health following heavy rotation in midweek. Only N’Golo Kanté and Victor Moses unlikely to be involved, both with hamstring injuries.
AFC Bournemouth’s Jermain Defoe is likely to make the squad despite doubts over a hamstring complaint but the same cannot be said for Josh King who could be unavailable with a back injury. Winger Ryan Fraser is also struggling with a knock.

AFC Bournemouth (4-4-2) Begovic; A Smith, Francis, Aké, Daniels; Ibe, L Cook, A Surman, Stanislas; Afobe, Defoe.
Chelsea (3-4-2-1) Courtois; Rüdiger, Luiz, Cahill; Azpilicueta, Bakayoko, Fabregas, Alonso; Pedro, Hazard; Morata.
