Chelsea in the mood to crush Cherries
Bournemouth could get bombed out
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.

No fresh injuries have been reported but Cesc Fabregas and Michy Batshuayi are still sidelined.
Adam Smith is available after a one-game ban but Lys Mousset (ankle) is out and Marc Pugh (calf) is a doubt.
Bournemouth have lost 14 of their last 18 away matches against the big six.
