Preview:
Chelsea and AFC Bournemouth face at Stamford Bridge, in a match for the 15th round of the Premier League. These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. Chelsea registers significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth special attention.

Analysis of Chelsea

The home team is currently in the 14th position of the league, with 15 points won, after 4 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Norwich City, by (1‑0). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Tottenham Hotspur, by (0‑0). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses at their stadium. In the last 7 home league matches Chelsea has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses, so they have won 10 points out of 21 possible. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 14 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

Chelsea come to this match after a 0-0 draw against Tottenham, the 3rd consecutive match without losing.
In this match will be expected that the coach José Mourinho choose an offensive team to take advantage from the defensive weaknesses of their opponent. With all the team available, the doubt will be the insertion of Diego Costa in the titular eleven or not. The spanish only scored 4 goals in this season.
To note the great shape of the brazilian William, he has already scored 6 goals.

Confirmed Lineup: T. Courtois, K. Zouma, B. Ivanović, G. Cahill, A. Baba, E. Hazard, Oscar, Willian, Pedro, N. Matić, Fàbregas.
Coach: G. Hiddink.

Analysis of AFC Bournemouth

The away team is currently in the 18th position of the league, with 10 points won, after 2 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Swansea City, by (2‑2). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Everton, by (3‑3). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 20 goals scored and 23 conceded; against 6 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 28 goals scored and 20 conceded. In the last 7 away league matches AFC Bournemouth has a record of 1 win, 1 draw and 5 losses, so they have won 4 points out of 21 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 10 matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 14 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 12 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (16'‑30').

Bournemouth come to this match after an exciting 3-3 draw against Everton, a match on which 4 of the 6 goals were scored after the 80'. 
In this match the team led by Eddie Howe will try to play as they did in the last match, and trying to keep the block impenetrable, playing the attack through counterattacks. 
The absences by injury are Christian Atsu, Tommy Elphick, Max Gradel, Callem Wilson ans Tyrone Mings. 

Confirmed Lineup: A. Boruc, S. Cook, S. Francis, A. Smith, C. Daniels, H. Arter, M. Ritchie, J. Stanislas, A. Surman, D. Gosling, J. King.
Coach: E. Howe.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match is that Chelsea will score two times. It's expected that Chelsea will control big part of the match, and take advantage of more opportunities to score, not only by playing at home, but by the offensive quality of the team. 
Furthermore, Bournemouth have some defensive weaknesses that will be taken in advantage by the home team.
