Chelsea have turned the corners around in recent weeks with impressive performances. After the kind of start to the season they suffered it will still take them few weeks to come out of the slump entirely. However, there are signs of improvement for Jose Mourinho’s side as we take a look at the Predicted Chelsea lineup vs Bournemouth ahead of the weekend kick-off.
Predicted Chelsea lineup vs Bournemouth
The biggest positive for Chelsea comes in form Thibaut Courtois who is set to return after a 3-month layoff. The Belgian keeper has been a huge miss in Chelsea’s defense as they have shipped goal in his absence. With him returning to the squad, we can expect Mourinho’s men to be more efficient at the back.
Branislav Ivanovic is expected to start at right back despite the shaky performances in recent weeks. John Terry could sit this one out too after Gary Cahill and Kurt Zouma’s impressive outing against Tottenham. Elsewhere, Diego Costa could yet find hard to make his return to playing XI with Loic Remy getting the nod to start.
Eden Hazard pulled off an impressive display against Tottenham but he will revert to his left-win role against Bournemouth. Willian will continue to lead Chelsea’s attack with Oscar playing as the number 10 behind Remy.
