Bournemouth vs Chelsea Live Streaming TV Channels, Kick off and Team News
Under the new leadership, both Bournemouth and Chelsea, having failed to meet expectations recently, are set to square off in a Premier League showdown at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.
Bournemouth, led by Andoni Iraola, headed into the international pause after a 2-2 tie with Brentford. On the other hand, Chelsea continued their unfortunate streak with a 1-0 home defeat against Nottingham Forest.
After scoring against Swansea City in the EFL Cup, Bournemouth’s David Brooks kept the momentum going, netting his first Premier League goal in over three years since his Non-Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosis, during the Brentford match. A late goal from Brooks had almost given Bournemouth the lead, but Bryan Mbeumo’s last-minute equalizer denied them the victory.
With just two points from their first four matches, Bournemouth currently sits in 16th place in the Premier League standings. Despite this, their performance against top-tier teams like Tottenham and Liverpool has been commendable.
Bournemouth’s recent performance streak means they haven’t tasted victory in the last eight Premier League matches. Their only shutout in the past 12 games was against Southampton.
While Chelsea’s main players rested during the EFL Cup against Wimbledon, their performance against Nottingham Forest left much to be desired. Forest, capitalizing on Chelsea’s weak moments, secured the win with a goal from Anthony Elanga.
Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea’s manager, has a lot on his plate. Currently, Chelsea sits 12th in the league standings. With upcoming matches against Aston Villa and Brighton, the Blues’ defense will be put to the test. For a club of Chelsea’s stature, having only two wins out of 16 Premier League games is concerning. However, their recent 3-1 victory over Bournemouth could be a morale booster.

For Bournemouth, their recent match was too soon for Luis Sinisterra to make an appearance. With Sinisterra’s injury history, he might not start in the upcoming game. Marcos Senesi, Hamed Traore, and Tyler Adams might also be unavailable due to various reasons. However, Dango Ouattara is expected to play after recovering from an ankle injury. Other injuries include Alex Scott, Ryan Fredericks, and Emiliano Marcondes. After his goal for Wales, Brooks might be a potential starter.
On the Chelsea front, injuries continue to plague the team. New signings Christopher Nkunku and Romeo Lavia are ruled out, along with Carney Chukwuemeka, Wesley Fofana, and Marcus Bettinelli. The game might also come too soon for Reece James, Trevoh Chalobah, and Benoit Badiashile.
Contrary to expectations set by the Albanian FA president, Armando Broja won’t be on the bench, as confirmed by Pochettino. Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez’s availability remains uncertain after their South American trips, but they might be ready for Sunday’s kickoff.
Bournemouth: Neto; Aarons, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kerkez; Christie, Cook; Brooks, Billing, Tavernier; Solanke.
