Bournemouth vs Chelsea: Prediction, kick-off time, team news, TV, live stream, h2h results, odds today

The pressure is on as Chelsea return to Premier League action today away at Bournemouth.

Anything other than a victory on the south coast would have the club veering towards yet another crisis, albeit with the acceptance that such wholesale changes made over the summer would take time to bed in.

Bournemouth was the scene of Frank Lampard finally grabbing his first win in temporary charge last season and Chelsea could do with a similar outcome this weekend.

A solid performance and point at Brentford before the international break should give the Cherries confidence to earn a first league win under Andoni Iraola.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Bournemouth vs Chelsea is scheduled for a 2pm BST kick-off time today, Sunday 17 September, 2023.
