Champions Could Choke on Cherries
There weren't many fooled by the final scoreline when Chelsea beat Watford 4-2 last week. The champions were lucky and they lost their last away game to bottom club Palace.
Chelsea got themselves out of jail at home to Watford last weekend but they are not themselves at the moment. Kante is still out today and you can only reach the conclusion that he makes a huge difference.
Most observers feel that Bournemouth are in a false position (19th) and the players must be helped by the continued support of Eddie Howe. The atmosphere remains encouraging rather than hyper-critical.
The Cherries are on the up after a win and a draw in their last two home games and a hard-fought victory at Stoke last time out. At a best price of 19/4 with Bet365, they could shock the champions here.
