After last weekend’s wobble at home to Crystal Palace, Chelsea made a decisive statement about their title credentials on Wednesday night with a 2-1 win over Manchester City.
With victory they maintained their 7-point gap at the top of the table, and they will be in no mood to let that slip when they visit Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
The Cherries were able to upset Liverpool at Anfield in midweek with a 2-2 draw, but can they repeat the trick here?
|ATTACKING FORM AVERAGES|
|DEFENSIVE FORM AVERAGES|
Our Ultimate Form Guide (above) suggests that is highly unlikely, with the league leaders coming out on top in 12 out of 15 key statistical areas.
In attack the two sides have actually performed remarkably similarly over the last 10 games. Averages of 1.4 and 1.6 goals per game are almost too close to call, and with 1 in 6 shots finding the net for each team there could well be goals in this one.
Chelsea, however, look the more likely to keep it tight enough at the back to come away with the win. They’re currently conceding a full 1.0 goals per game fewer than Bournemouth in each match, and are allowing 5 fewer shots on their goal each outing.
Conte’s men have been by far the best side in the Premier League this season, and with the main prize now appearing tantalisingly close, the smart money is on them to get another win here and move a step closer to being crowned champions of England.
