Bournemouth vs Chelsea head-to-head

Bournemouth were one of the teams who’d upset Chelsea many a time in recent years, and that is reflected in their five wins in 16 fixtures against the Blues.

The West Londoners, on the other hand, have beaten the Cherries 11 times. The two teams have played out one draw in their last 16 encounters.
