English Premier League Report: Chelsea v Bournemouth 01 September 2018

Bournemouth's likely line-up

Eddie Howe was left to reflect on a missed opportunity for Bournemouth as they lost 2-0 at Chelsea on Saturday.

Maurizio Sarri believes there is far more to come from his Chelsea side despite making it four wins from his first four Premier League matches in charge with a 2-0 home defeat of Bournemouth on Saturday.

"I think whatever the teams coming up after that, keep taking these three points".

"It was a good chance for Callum and Nathan's one is a big moment in the game because you are trying to take the lead and make it hard for Chelsea".

"They did well. It was a hard match for them in the sense we didn't have a lot of the ball but you saw Jefferson's best qualities and I thought he defended well for the team and made a number of blocks. I think he can be a Premier League starter at Chelsea".

The best and worst of David Luiz was on show in the first half. "But in this kind of match, usually you can win in the last 20-25 minutes, so I was always confident".

"In the first half it was very hard to play - we needed to move the ball at a higher speed - but it wasn't easy". Last season they ended three places lower and with two fewer points, but Howe regarded convincing top-flight consolidation for a third consecutive campaign as their best achievement yet.

Of course, it will be in the matches against top six sides that will ultimately test Kovacic, yet it's certainly a case of so far, so good. Giroud is no more the solution to Chelsea's striker problems, but his superior all-round contribution against stubborn opponents means Sarri faces a big decision.

Chelsea, though, had also demonstrated a degree of vulnerability at the back, particularly when Callum Wilson was left unmarked as he met Rico's 30th minute cross, only to divert the ball wide.

Sarri acted by introducing both Olivier Giroud and Pedro, and it took less than 10 minutes for the pair to combine to give Chelsea what was a deserved advantage.
