With that in mind, coach Frank Lampard will be desperate for his team to get the better of Bournemouth away from home. The Cherries are only one place below the Blues in the standings and have the same number of points.
The hosts have claimed two wins in a row and will be confident of at least taking points off the struggling and under-achieving Chelsea in this league fixture at the weekend.
