For much of this season it looked as though it would be a disappointing campaign for Mauricio Pochettino and his young Chelsea squad. However, the Blues have found form at the right time and have strung together some impressive performances and results. Cole Palmer has caught the eye all season but has been ably supported in recent weeks by Noni Madueke, Nicolas Jackson and Connor Gallagher. 

A draw for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge will secure European football for next season but it won’t be easy against a Bournemouth side who have amassed the highest top-flight points total in their history. The Cherries sit on 48 points and despite a home defeat to Brentford last weekend, have enjoyed a remarkable season under Andoni Iraola. The Spaniard signed a new contract in midweek and will be hoping to end the season on a high with another statement victory. 

Line ups: 

Chelsea XI: Petrovic, Chalobah, Silva, Badiashile, Cucurella, Gallagher, Caicedo, Sterling, Palmer, Madueke, Jackson.

Bounemouth XI: Neto, Kerkez, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Tavernier, Aarons, Christie, Cook, Semenyo, Kluivert, Unal
