On Wednesday the 30th of January Bournemouth are at home in the Premier League against 4th place Chelsea.
Bournemouth is in 12th place on 30 points and another 3 wins should see them secure their future once more in the EPL which considering the size and resources of the club is quite an achievement. In their last match in the Premier League, they were able to bounce back from a previous loss to Everton to beat West Ham 2-0. In their next 3 games, they have to play Cardiff away, Liverpool away and are at home to Wolves. They are only 3 points behind Watford in 7th and are 11 points clear of the drop zone.
Chelsea sits in 4th place in the EPL on 47 points and is 4 points behind Tottenham Hotspurs who are in 3rd. They are only 3 points ahead of Arsenal after been beaten by the Gunners in the last match in the EPL 2-0. It was a huge set back for the Blues and they will need to bounce back against Bournemouth if they are going to secure the final Champions League Place. They face Huddersfield next so it is a great point to pick up 6 points and put the pressure on the others around them.
Prediction – Chelsea Win
Chelsea have to win this match has any team in the top 6 that lose two on the bounce will give the other Champions League qualification contenders a huge boost. It is not going to be an easy match for them but they will be fired up after losing the Arsenal match so Bournemouth is going to have to play at their very best if they are going to get something. I think that the Blues will get the first goal and go on to win 1-2.
