Confirmed Teams: AFC Bournemouth vs Chelsea | Premier League
Chelsea face AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League and the confirmed team news is in from the Vitality Stadium.
Frank Lampard’s side make the trip down to the south coast hoping to end a torrid run of six defeats in a row, which has seen Chelsea not claim victory since March 11.
They come up against a Bournemouth who have picked up form just at the right time, at the business end of the season. Gary O’Neil has overseen four wins from their last five, almost mathematically securing the Cherries’ top-flight status.

“(He’s done) a great job, full credit to him,” Lampard said of O’Neil ahead of the league clash.
“I don’t know any of the details behind the scenes. He’s done a lot of good work there. He’s created a team with high energy, high quality, feeling of togetherness at the club. Considering where he came in, he’s done a good job and getting the credit he rightfully deserves.”
Chelsea beat Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge earlier this season and a league double would come at the perfect time to restore some confidence into the depleted Blues heading into the final four Premier League matches of the season.
Here is the confirmed team news as AFC Bournemouth take on Chelsea.
Starting XI: Neto, Smith, Senesi, Kelly, Vina, Rothwell, Lerma, Ouattara, Billing, Christie, Solanke
