Tournament: Championship of England. English Premier League. 4th round.
Chelsea (the head coach Maurizio Sarri)
Prior to the 4th round four clubs at once are at the head of the Premier League champion race. These are Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea and Watford which have given absolute result at the beginning of the season (9 points each). And only the defending champion of Manchester City has taken the fifth place with seven points.
We present to your attention a home match between Chelsea, London and the mid level team Bournemouth. In the previous round the Royals were fighting with Newcastle on Saint-James Park and for the first time in seven years have managed to win over the Magpies on home arena (1:2).
The score in this match on the 76th minute was opened by the best player of the London club Eden Hazard who has precisely taken an eleven-meter free kick (0:1). However seven minutes have passed and the hosts have managed to win back (1:1). An unintentional thought that the most northern football arena of the EPL is still unlucky for Chelsea became the most relevant. But, nevertheless, when only a few minutes were left before the end of the match, the defense of the Magpies has made a rude mistake in form of an own goal (1:2).
Bournemouth (the head coach Eddie Howe)
The hosts of Dean Court have also quite successfully begun a new season. But, if the home victory in the very first round over the debutant Cardiff seemed to be quite natural (2:0), then two subsequent results have considerably pleased the fans of the team of Eddie Howe.
In frames of the second match of the new season Bournemouth on the Olympic arena of London has won over the team of Manuel Pellegrini (1:2). And then, already in the third round, the second club by its status from Manchester has come on Dean Court. In fifteen minutes prior to the end of this match the guests were ahead with a difference in two balls (0:2). But then, at the end of the match the hosts have literally destroyed the rival by the power of their attacks. Joshua King was the first to score the goal (1:2). And exactly in four minutes Nathan Aké has restored the balance in the score (2:2). Thus, Eddie Howe’s team has gained one point in almost hopeless match with Everton.
