Chelsea v Bournemouth League Cup Betting Preview
Venue: Stamford Bridge
Chelsea haven’t been up to their efficient standards this season, but as is usually the case during poor campaigns, The Blues are still in the mix for silverware. Chelsea have won their last five domestically at Stamford Bridge. Expect the likes of Thibaut Courtois, N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard to be rested as Antonio Conte balances a hectic schedule.
Bournemouth are going through a tough patch at the moment. They’re just one point clear of the drop zone and travel to Manchester City at the weekend. So it will be interesting to see where Eddie Howe’s priorities lie. In the past he’s made wholesale changes for cup games but at the Quarter-Final stage, The Cherries could view this differently. They’re six games without a win.
David Luiz and Charly Musonda are out. Alvaro Morata is a doubt.
Bournemouth are without Adam Fedirici, Tyrone Mings, Brad Smith, Charlie Daniels and Josh King. Callum Wilson is a doubt.
Potential Chelsea Starting XI:
Caballero; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Zappcosta, Fabregas, Drinkwater, Kenedy; Pedro, Willian; Batshuayi
Potential Bournemouth Starting XI:
Boruc; Francis, Cook, Ake, Smith; Arter, Gosling; Stanislas, Mousset, Fraser; Afobe
