Premier League: Chelsea x Bournemouth, Match Preview, Odds and Predictions(19/05/2024)

Chelsea is almost guaranteed European football as they get ready to play Bournemouth on the last day of the campaign.

With Mauricio Pochettino and his team finally finding form after a mostly disappointing season, the Blues are on a run of four consecutive victories, and that late surge has seen them climb the table in the chase for European qualifying.

If Chelsea wants to finish fifth and qualify for the Europa League, Spurs must lose at Sheffield United; however, if the Blues can get at least a point at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, they will be guaranteed sixth place in the league.

With a three-point deficit to Chelsea, Newcastle and Manchester United are in prime position to guarantee their return to Europe the following season.

Going into this match tied on points with Brighton in tenth, Bournemouth will be aiming for a top-half finish after having had an excellent season.

Chelsea x Bournemouth team news

Thiago Silva will start in what will be his last game for the team, while Reece James will be banned by Chelsea after his red card for kicking out in the victory against Brighton.

Among those who have just recovered to form and should play are Ben Chilwell and Christopher Nkunku, while Mykhailo Mudryk, who was hit in the head against Brighton, is out with a possible concussion.

Concerning Bournemouth, Milos Kerkez may be called back into the squad against Stamford Bridge after serving a three-match ban.

After making only four starts in an injury-plagued season, Tyler Adams is back in action against Brighton. Dominic Solanke needs a goal against his old team to achieve 20 goals in the Premier League this season.

Head To Head And Previous Matches

Just one point will ensure Chelsea's spot in Europe the following season; three points may even allow them to pass Sputs and take fifth place. Though the Blues have had a difficult season, they have been playing very well lately, winning four straight games and losing just one of their last 14. At Stamford Bridge, where they have only once lost since October, their form has been particularly remarkable. Bournemouth are comfortably mid-table after a productive season. That being said, they have not been playing well away from the Vitality Stadium lately, losing three of their past four games.

Three victories each have been the outcome of the past six Premier League meetings between the teams at Stamford Bridge. But with 13 victories overall to the Cherries' 5, Chelsea leads the head-to-head. 

Our Predictions

Chelsea to win @1.46 on

Chelsea's season seemed to be ending in another mid-table letdown. Still, Mauricio Pochettino's team is showing promise at last, and they need to defeat Bournemouth at home to upp out the campaign.

The only time the Blues have lost in the previous 14 games was a 5-0 defeat at title-chasing Arsenal, and four straight wins at Stamford Bridge should give them confidence.

Although Pochettino has a youthful team, they have started to step up and are in an excellent position to ensure they will play in Europe next season—something that seemed like a far-off fantasy only a few months ago.

Their signature is thrilling offensive football, so there should be no shortage of hope that the future holds promise after a few disappointing seasons.

Palmer to score anytime @1.85 on

Cole Palmer has been Chelsea's best player this season, scoring 22 league goals, the most recent one in their 2-1 victory against Brighton on Wednesday.

He is obviously still eager to increase his total, as shown by his 23 attempts on goal in his previous five games, and he could accomplish it in their penultimate game of the season.
