However, since the blues were only second in the table behind Valencia, duels with the top teams from Paris, Munich, Torino or Barcelona are threatened in the spring. In the Premier League, Chelsea would qualify again for the premier class due to the current standings.

A top four place remains the big season goal of the young blues team. However, the lead to fifth place a month ago was still nine points.

In the meantime, the gap shrank to five points. Still a pleasant situation, also because of the lack of consistency of the established top six teams like Man United, Tottenham or Arsenal, the lead seems to be passable.

The lack of consistency also distinguishes Bournemouth (15th place in the table, 16 points) with coach Eddie Howe this season. After a negative run, the club from the English south coast is only one point ahead of the relegation places. The form table of the last five game days leads the Cherries only on the last table rank (five bankruptcies).

According to bookmakers’ odds, only a home win for the Blues seems likely between Chelsea and Bournemouth. West Ham showed two weeks ago during the guest appearance at the bridge that this does not always have to mean something.

Chelsea – statistics & current form

In the most recent home game, club legend John Terry returned to Stamford Bridge as Aston Villa’s assistant coach.

With Wilson and King, eight of the 18 Premier League goals (44 percent). In September 1994 there was a long series of defeats for the Dorset Club (seven at the time). This means that the five bankruptcies in a row can at least be explained.
