Who would have thought that a time would come in the Premier League when a duel between Bournemouth and Chelsea would have the Cherries as favourites?
Both teams are level on points on the log, and you must travel to the first few weeks of the season and ask if this was ever possible.
Chelsea have lost every single game Frank Lampard has led them to since taking over from Graham Potter.
And as it stands, it’s proving to be a huge mistake considering the fact that the Blues are closer to the relegation zone than European qualification spots.
Bournemouth is as good as safe from the claws of relegation, and you must give it to Gary O’Neil.
The Cherries fired Scott Parker after a horrible afternoon at Anfield, where he shipped nine goals, and many thought O’Neil was hired to guide them to the Championship and then lead them back to the top flight.
Bournemouth’s run in the league has positioned their manager among the nominees for manager of the month for April.
Successive wins and convincing performances against sides around them gave them a nine-point cushion on their relegation brothers... Massive!
Chelsea went to the Emirates to play Arsenal.
Both teams went into the game on the back of disappointing results, but not many gave Chelsea a chance, and they didn’t disappoint those people as they turned out a shambolic outing.
The preseason has started for both sides.
Bournemouth’s target is met; there’s no way the likes of Leicester, Leeds, Nottingham Forest, or Everton would all pick up twelve points from the remaining possible twelve.
The cherries are safe, and we can take things easy from here.
Chelsea can’t possibly be relegated because of how bad the teams mentioned are, but how high can they finish?
Six points off the tenth spot, and that could be their new season ambition—to finish within the top half of the season.
It could be a borefest.
Both managers could decide to feature players who haven’t gotten the chance to shine this season. Both sides are on the same page, and that only looks good for Bournemouth.
It’s tough to tell, but Chelsea could hit a new low here.Verdict: Full-time draw
