The Blues lined up in a 3-4-3 formation, with Edouard Mendy in goal and a back three of Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, and Antonio Rudiger. In midfield, N’Golo Kante and Jorginho provided the stability, with Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, and Callum Hudson-Odoi supporting the lone striker, Timo Werner.
Bournemouth, managed by Jason Tindall, also put in a strong performance and were unfortunate not to come away with all three points. The Cherries lined up in a 4-4-2 formation, with Asmir Begovic in goal and a back four of Diego Rico, Steve Cook, Chris Mepham, and Adam Smith. In midfield, Jefferson Lerma and Philip Billing provided the grit and determination, with David Brooks and Harry Wilson supporting the strike duo of Arnaut Danjuma and Sam Surridge.
Both teams had chances to score, with Chelsea coming close through a shot from Havertz that hit the post and a header from Silva that was saved by Begovic. Bournemouth also had their chances, with Danjuma and Surridge both coming close with shots on goal.
In the end, the match ended in a goalless draw, with both teams having to settle for a point. The result sees Chelsea move up to fourth place in the Premier League table, while Bournemouth remain in 15th place.
