Lampard Chelsea

Chelsea has stayed at the fourth position in the League table of the Premier League with 45 points in 28 matches after the draw against Bournemouth. Chelsea has won their previous match in the Premier League against Tottenham Hotspur. The Londoners have not won back-to-back games in the Premier League for a while now.

The Story Of The Game Between Chelsea And Bournemouth That Ended In A Draw

The Blues have not been at their best in this season. At this moment, they are not having the much-needed squad depth. Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic are currently out for days. N’Golo Kante and Callum Hudson-Odoi are also not available at this moment.

Olivier Giroud is now the first choice centre-forward for Chelsea. Giroud has scored against Tottenham Hotspur. However, he is not the player who will score goals in every match. The manager of the Blues, Frank Lampard is currently using the 3-4-2-1 formation at this moment. Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger are playing as three centre backs. Willy Caballero has emerged as the first choice goalkeeper of the Blues at this moment. The future of Kepa Arrizabalaga at Stamford Bridge is now highly doubtful.

Jorginho has been shown 10 yellow cards this season for the Blues. He will now miss the next two Premier League matches. He is also going to miss the second leg of the Champions League against Bayern Munich. Mateo Kovacic has not been able to replicate his performance in the previous match.

Chelsea has gone ahead in the match with a goal of Marcos Alonso at the 33rd minute of the match. Aaron Ramsdale has no chance to save the left-footed strike of Marcos Alonso. The Blues have played really well in the next 10-15 minutes in the first half. The first half has ended with a scoreline of 1-0 in favour of the Blues.

Could The Blues Have Done Better In The Match To Get More Out Of It?

In the second half, Chelsea has not been able to keep their lead. Jefferson Lerma has scored the equaliser at the 54th minute of the match. Ryan Fraser has provided the ball towards Jefferson Lerma at the time of the Goal. Joshua King has scored the second goal of Bournemouth just three minutes after scoring the first goal. Jack Stacey has provided the assist in this goal. Chelsea’s defence has been completely exposed to the attacking threats of Bournemouth.

Chelsea has been desperate to equalise the scoreline after conceding the second goal. So, the Blues have started to attack more. Ross Barkley, Willian and Michy Batshuyai have come as substitutes. Pedro’s shot has been saved by Aaron Ramsdale. Marcos Alonso has got the deflected ball and his header has gone straight into the goal. Chelsea has lost 4 matches out of their last 5 encounters against Bournemouth.

So, a draw against Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium is not that bad for the Blues. The match has ended with a scoreline of 2-2 on Saturday. Bournemouth is still there in the relegation zone. The upcoming fixtures are also not going to be easy for them. The Cherries will get the confidence boost up from the result of this match against Chelsea.
