Chelsea, under the management of Frank Lampard, secured their first win since his return in a match that demonstrated improvements in the team’s transitional play.
The game featured a first-half header by Conor Gallagher from an N’Golo Kante cross, followed by a Matias Vina goal that led to a draw at halftime, despite some good attacking efforts by Chelsea.
The team started the second half strongly, and a well-timed tackle by Thiago Silva prevented Dominic Solanke from scoring for Bournemouth. Benoit Badiashile, a young player, scored his first goal for Chelsea, and Joao Felix added another four minutes later, resulting in a 3-1 win over Bournemouth.
Watch the highlights:
Chelsea will next face Nottingham Forest, a team facing relegation, before playing their final games of the season against Manchester City, Manchester United, and Newcastle United. However, given their current position in the Champions League slots, the team’s current form appears to be at the wrong time.
