Chelsea face AFC Bournemouth in their first Premier League game back following the World Cup break.

Graham Potter’s side resume against newly-promoted Bournemouth and will be hoping to get back to winning ways after going winless in their previous five league outings.

Chelsea have lost their last three league games – against Brighton & Hove Albion, Arsenal and Newcastle United – which has seen them slip down the table.

It was an intense period for Chelsea after Potter’s arrival in September. He will have hoped some time away from playing will have enabled him to instil his ideas on the squad ahead of the restart.

Here is all the information for the league encounter:
