Hiddink To Make 4 Changes: Predicted Chelsea Line-Up vs Bournemouth
Chelsea will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Bournemouth at Dean Court on Saturday. Here is the side we think Guus Hiddink will select
Chelsea will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Bournemouth at Dean Court on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side we think Guus Hiddink will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois is suspended after being sent off during last weeks 3-0 defeat to Manchester City so Asmir Begovic will start in goal.
Defence: Hiddink is likely to make a few changes in the wake of that disappointing display at home to City but with John Terry and Kurt Zouma still out, he has limited options to mix things up at the back.
Kenedy could replace Baba Rahman at left-back while Matt Miazga could also be in Hiddink’s thoughts but I think Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic will keep their places along with Cesar Azpilicueta.
Midfield: John Obi Mikel could get a breather with Nemanja Matic coming in to make a rare start alongside Cesc Fabregas in midfield after falling out-of-favour under Hiddink in recent months. Ruben Loftus-Cheek could also make way with Oscar coming back in to start in the advanced central midfield role.
Attack: Eden Hazard will be handed a late fitness test as he looks to return from a niggling hip injury but Hiddink isn’t likely to risk the attacker ahead of the Euro’s so perhaps a place on the bench may be best.
Pedro and Willian are therefore likely to keep their places and support Diego Costa in attack with the likes of Alexandre Pato and Radamel Falcao once again on the bench.
Here is how I think we’ll see Chelsea line-up:
