Storylines

Chelsea: For the Blues, it's all about having a short memory and rebounding. After getting crushed 3-0 at home against Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday, will this team have the maturity to regain its focus or will it let Bayern beat them twice? Christian Pulisic is still out with the adductor injury and the defense needs to get on the same page fast before they lose their fourth-place spot. 

Bournemouth: It's a battle for survival for the Cherries. Two points above the drop zone with 11 games to go. At home, they just need to get something here or risk possibly being jumped this weekend and falling into the drop zone. Expect them to play cautious but also try to get out on the counter quickly. A win here could be the result they need to get where they want to be.

Prediction

Squad rotation forces Frank Lampard to use a lighter squad that can't get the job done. Pick: Bournemouth 1, Chelsea 1
