Bournemouth produced a stunning performance to defeat Chelsea 3-0 at Stamford Bridge last season but they are likely to come across a much-improved Blues side this weekend.

Maurizio Sarri warned that it would take a few months for Chelsea to hit their stride but his team have maximum points and are not far off being considered genuine title challengers.

The Blues faced a blanket Newcastle defence last Sunday and were frustrated for long periods but they are likely to strike much earlier against the Cherries, who still look vulnerable at the back.
