17/09/2023 4:00 pm
Both flattering to deceive under new management so far, AFC Bournemouth and Chelsea aim to right some recent wrongs when they meet in Sunday’s Premier League match at the Vitality Stadium.
The hosts currently find themselves sitting in 16th place in the Premier League standings on two points through four matches, just one points ahead of 18th-placed Everton just inside the relegation zone.
Bournemouth picked up a point in their last league match, drawing 2-2 at Gtech Community Stadium against Brentford, extending their winless season start to four games.
The Cherries have one draw and one loss this season in their two previous league matches at Vitality Stadium, and they find themselves on a four-game home winless run dating back to May 6 against Chelsea.
Meanwhile Chelsea suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge in their last league game, leaving them in 12th place on four points through four matches.
The Blues will be out to end a three-game away losing streak, with the last time they did not suffer defeat on the road coming on May 6 against Bournemouth.
In four league matches this season, Bournemouth have two draws and two draws, while Chelsea have one win, one draw and two losses.
The previous Premier League match between these two sides saw Chelsea claim a 3-1 victory at Vitality Stadium last season.

AFC Bournemouth Team News
Bournemouth’s draw with Brentford came too soon for deadline day signing Luis Sinisterra to make his debut, and Andoni Iraole may avoid throwing him into the first XI after he recently turned out for Colombia.
Marcos Senesi and Hamed Traore are in the same international boat as Sinisterra, whose former Leeds teammate Tyler Adams is also yet to earn his first Cherries appearance due to a thigh problem.

Both Christopher Nkunku (knee) and Romeo Lavia (ankle) will not have their Chelsea baptism just yet, and they are joined on the long-term absentee list by knee victims Carney Chukwuemeka, Wesley Fofana and Marcus Bettinelli.
Trevor Chalobah and Benoit Badiashile are on the brink of returning from thigh problems but will not return here, while this game will come too soon for skipper Reece James (thigh).
