EPL: Chelsea Stunned By Bournemouth In Victor Moses’ Absence
Chelsea were beaten 3-0 by Bournemouth in the English Premier League on Wednesday at Stamford Bridge.
Winger Victor Moses was on the bench for all duration of the encounter that saw the visitors scoring all three goals in the second half.
Manager Antonio Conte preferred to start Davide Zappacosta instead, and while taking him off in the 65th minute, he was replaced with Callum Hudson-Odoi.
A horrible night for Chelsea began in the 51st minute after midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko lost the ball and Callum Wilson played a neat one-two with Jordan Ibe before slotting home.
Wilson was also involved in the second goal, when he pushed the ball to Junior Stanislas who flicked it into the net off sprawling goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois in the 65th minute.
Former Chelsea midfielder Nathan Ake made it three barely three minutes later, prodding the ball in from a Stanislas shot.
The result saw Chelsea slip one place to 4th, while Liverpool now move to 3rd spot on the EPL table, on goals difference. However, both teams are on 50 points each.
