Full-time: Chelsea 0-3 Bournemouth

A stunning second-half salvo from Bournemouth has damned Chelsea to a crushing defeat. Goals from Wilson, Stanislas and Ibe sent the Cherries to delirium and left Conte's under-strength side to suffer in the mess they got themselves into.

The Blues slip to fourth as a result of that dismal display, and with Tottenham looking to be approaching their best form, they need to buck their ideas up quickly.

That's all from IB Times UK. Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Hudson-Odoi dances away from challenges and finds Hazard, who lays the ball off to Alonso. The Spaniard finds the Belgian in the box, but he can't control his volley.


Bournemouth readying a final change, Mousset on for Wilson, presumably.

Pedro whips a ball in but nothing doing for Chelsea. Credit to Bournemouth, they have been more than worthy winners here.


Four minutes of added time remaining at Stamford Bridge. Hudson-Odoi has looked lively in patches, to his credit. The youngster makes space for a shot, but it's never troubling Begovic.


Chelsea corner. Begovic claims. Stamford Bridge emptying at an alarming rate as Bournemouth take the fight to the hosts once again.



Honours even at St James' Park as Vokes equalises for Burnley, while Kevin de Bruyne kills the game for Manchester City, who now lead West Brom 2-0.


Bournemouth win a corner as they press for a fourth goal. It's cleared by Chelsea, but Alonso's pass was never going to reach a man in blue.

Ibe's race is run. He seems to have picked up a hamstring problem.


Fabregas receives a yellow card for smashing into King after the Norwegian had muscled him off the ball. Tackling not exactly the Spaniard's forte, as he evidenced then.

Chelsea fans already leaving the stadium.


Sums it up for Chelsea, really.

Chelsea appeal in vain for a penalty but their cries seem to fall on deaf ears. A lovely ball from Fabregas then sends Pedro, but his effort goes horribly wide.

3-0, Bournemouth are in dreamland!


GOAL! Chelsea 0-3 Bournemouth (Ake)


Wilson and Stanislas combine brilliantly down the left hand side to evade the attentions of several Chelsea players. The former then sets the latter free with a lovely reverse pass, allowing Stanislas to raid into the box and poke the ball through Courtois' legs.

Conte has reacted immediately - young Hudson-Odoi is on for Zappacosta.

Hazard forces Begovic into a meaningful save, arguably his first of the evening.

Alonso then drifts inside to get involved but Hazard quickly loses possession.


Fabregas tries to play a quick ball for Hazard but the referee brings it back becuase he had not allowed the Spaniard to take the free-kick.

Chelsea then come forward through Rudiger, whose low cross is poked behind by Cook for a corner. Bakayoko's tame header is then easily claimed by Begovic.


Hazard bears down on goal but is flagged for offside. Not been the Belgian's night so far, but there is still time for that to change.


Lewis Cook almost makes it two with a piledriver that just evades Courtois' post!


Conte makes his first substitution of the evening. Barkley is withdrawn by Fabregas after a rather disappointing full debut.


Bournemouth break quickly up the pitch with numbers, Ibe finds the run of Wilson, who keeps his composure to slot expertly past Courtois. Cahill was exploited badly, didn't know whether to stick or twist. 1-0 to the visitors!

Hazard looks to test Fraser as he jinks around the box but his cross is deflected for a corner, which is cleared with supreme ease by the Cherries.
