Chelsea are no certainties to pick off Cherries
Bournemouth may benefit from 11-day break
Antonio Conte's side have shown signs of tiredness and their busy schedule may catch up with them against the Cherries, who are playing their first match in 11 days.
Bournemouth play a high-energy style of football and they were 1-0 winners at Chelsea in their first Premier League season. A similar result is not out of the question.
