BOU vs CHE Dream11: Chelsea make the trip to South Coast to face Bournemouth at Dean Court in the Premier League on Saturday. Leicester City's dip in form and the defeat at bottom-rooted Norwich City on Friday has opened the door for third place for Chelsea who can move within three points of the Foxes with a win in this game. But a trip down to the Vitality Stadium is not an easy one, especially when th Cherries are looking to pull clear of the relegation zone. Also, Chelsea‘s last trip to these shores resulted in a chastening 4-0 defeat. Some ghosts to exorcise!

Bournemouth vs Chelsea Team News:
Bournemouth Team News:
Injuries have started to ease up on Bournemouth, but five players are still out due to injuries.
Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld (ankle), David Brooks (ankle), Charlie Daniels (knee), Lloyd Kelly (hamstring), and Chris Mepham (knee, all unknown) will miss the home clash against Chelsea.
Midfielder Jefferson Lerma is available once again following a rib injury.
Centre-back Nathan Ake is also expected to be available after missing the last week's defeat at Burnley due to a head injury.
Bournemouth key players:
Callum Wilson: Not as effective as he was last season when he was banging goals for fun, drawing attention from big clubs in Premier League, but he is their main man up top. He has seven goals this season.
Harry Wilson: The on-loan Liverpool winger has been a success on these part. He is the joint top-scorer for the club with seven goals this season.
Nathan Ake is definitely a good option at the back. He will be a threat during set-piece situations.
While the likes of Ryan Fraser (if starts) and Joshua King can produce goods as well.
Chelsea team news:
For Chelsea, midfielder N'Golo Kante will miss third consecutive game due to the muscular injury he sustained during Manchester United game.
Forward Tammy Abraham has been ruled out of this game due to the ankle injury while Callum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic both remain sidelined as well.
Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who is yet to feature for Chelsea this season due to an Achilles injury, is back in the side and awaits his first chance of the season.
Olivier Giroud will start the game in Tammy Abraham's absence.
Chelsea key players:
Willian: Lampard highlighted in his press conference how important Willian is to Chelsea's cause. He is out of contract in the summer, but Chelsea are desperate to offer him a contract extension.
Pedro: A forgotten man to some extent, but he has the quality, we all know that.
Olivier Giroud: It's baffling to see a player of his calibre warming up the bench all season.
Mason Mount: His early season form was better what he is showing these days, but a real talent.
