Match preview

Gonzalo Higuain is expected to make his first Chelsea appearance in the Premier League this evening against Bournemouth.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has spoken on the future of Callum Hudson-Odoi ahead of the match.

He said: “On the pitch he’s doing very well. I’m really very happy with him.

“It’s not easy to keep these young players. He is of course one of the best 18-year-old players in Europe, so it’s very, very difficult.

“The club told me he’s out of the market for sure and probably he will be out of the market in July.”

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has admitted his side will have to be at their best to get anything against the Blues.

He explained: “We know we’ll have to be at our best if we’re to get something from Chelsea.

“Yes, there’s been some talk about Chelsea and their performances, but every time we’ve come up against them they’re one of the best.”

Chelsea will look to restore their three point cushion over Arsenal in the race for the final Champions League qualifying place.
