After last match, Antonio Conte said, Chelsea needed six wins to be crowned the English Champions, today’s victory lessens the number of wins by one. Beyond reasonable doubt table leaders Chelsea went for the game and was ‘in it to win it’. Antonio Conte’s boy’s outplayed Bournemouth hence collected absolute three points.
As early as 2 minutes, David Luiz almost scored an own goal, good enough goal keeper Thibaut Courtois saved the ball. However, by 17’ Adam Smith of Bournemouth was unlucky that his goal keeper couldn’t save him consequently Victor Moses’s low cross was received well by Diego Costa who turned to shot towards the goal and Smith’s head changed the direction slightly hence a goal for Chelsea.
Just two minutes after the first goal, on form Hazard doubled the lead for The Blues. He controlled well N’golo Kante’s pass, moves through a little and rounds the goal keeper to make clean finish. Three minutes to half time, host’s Joshua King scored the only goal for the team and finally in the second half Marcos Alonso closed the scoring of the day with a brilliant curl at 68’.
Chelsea maintains the seven points clear table lead after victory over Bournemouth while the hosts seats 15th on the table. The Blues next fixture is against 6th place Manchester United at the Old Trafford on Sunday 16th April whereas Bournemouth visit 2nd place Tottenham Hotspurs at the white hart lane on Saturday 15th April.
