Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is looking to beat Chelsea for the second time this season and a victory would move them level on points with the Blues in the Premier League.

The fact that Bournemouth could equal Premier League title holders Chelsea on points is huge motivation for the players and Howe also wants to give the home supporters something to cheer having won only 5 games at the Vitality Stadium so far this season.

“We haven’t talked about getting a top ten finish or anything like that, we’ve just talked about this game.

“We want to give our best in every effort to get a result, we owe it to supporters who haven’t seen a huge amount of home wins.

“Our aim is to try and do everything to achieve that for them.

“Our motivation is high for this game, we can go level on points with them and that’s absolutely huge. Their goal difference is superior but we’re eager to impress.”

Ex footballer and now Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson explained why, according to him, Eden Hazard failed this season at Chelsea:

You’re just hoping that this is an off season and he got a bit carried away with himself and wasn’t fully fit.

“Some players are starting to concentrate on the Euros now. They’ve got nothing to play for and they don’t want to get injured before the Euros.

“Belgium have got a very good chance of winning this tournament. For me, players have always got that in the back of their mind now.”

“I’d give him one more season to prove himself because you can’t be that good and then that bad.

“It’s impossible – you can’t hit those heights without being a top-drawer player, in my opinion.”

Chelsea are reportedly keen on England International Aaron Cresswell despite West Ham esteem his ownership around £20m (whereas a year ago the price-tag was £2m).

Chelsea have been linked with the 26-years-old, who started all 33 Premier League games with Hammers.

Also Liverpool are reportedly interested in the left-back, according to Tuttomercatoweb.com.

Chelsea have reportedly made a move to sign Hatem Ben Arfa, after Liverpool made a formal contract offer. Chelsea have registered their interest along with many other European sides.

L’Equipe reveal that PSG are claimed to be the first choice for the former Newcastle winger, but they have made no approach yet and Antonio Conte seems to be keen on the Frenchman.

This season has been a success for Ben Arfa, who currently plays for Nice in Ligue 1.

Also Atletico Madrid and AC Milan have both made formal offers for the French international and Wolfsburg, Porto, Valencia and Sevilla are reportedly interested in him.

Mats Hummels has been among Europe top defenders for years and several Premier League clubs targeted him: in fact, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea hope to sign him during the next transfer window.

“Mats is facing a tremendously important decision in his career, in his life, similar to a woman who is 30 and has to decide now or never having children,” his father and adviser, Hermann, is quoted by Bild.

“Dortmund is back among the top clubs in Europe, so the decision is so hard for him. If he should leave Dortmund yet, then he goes to one of the five or six top clubs and to these clubs is one course of Bayern Munich.

The German defender, 27, added fuel to the speculations on his future, claiming he’s losing his sleep over this important decision:

“I’ve set a date, but I’m keeping it to myself: it’s costing me half an hour before bed every night,” he said to Sky Sport Deutschland.

Hummels has been at Borussia Dortmund for eight seasons and have special bond to the club whose he’s has been the captain for a couple of years, so of course for him it’s not easy to leave the German side.

The top clubs tracking have just to wait for him to take this decision.

There has been a lot speculation involving on-loan Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen and where the player will be next season.

The Danish international is currently at German club Borussia Monchengladbach serving a 2-year loan deal. It has been rumoured that Chelsea wanted to cut the deal short and recall Christensen back to their Stamford Bridge ranks but Monchengladbach want to keep him permanently and would also look for compensation if they did manage to recall him.

Recently, Christensen has removed any rumours that he wants to leave Germany after being quoted in Kicker his excitement of having a fellow Dane potentially join him at Monchengladbach.

“I read in the newspaper about the rumour that he is to come. I think it would be great. Even though he’s a little older than I, we know each other from our youth. And the national team.”

The tension is beginning to build between Chelsea and the Brazilian football confederation over the availability of Blues winger Willian.

Brazil are under a lot of pressure this summer, they are expected to win both the Copa America and also the football Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Both tournaments are being held this coming summer.

The argument for Brazil is obvious, they want as many of their best players to compete in both tournaments to ensure their greatest chance of winning.

The argument Chelsea have is that Willian will not only miss the first 2 games of the season under new manager Antonio Conte, but he won’t be 100% fit when he returns, and of course there is more chance of injury to Willian the more competitive games he plays.

The Brazilian winger doesn’t want any fighting between the two, he wants them to come to an agreement that benefits both parties equally.

“Everyone knows my desire to play both championships, but of course we do not want to fight and put Chelsea in a difficult situation.

“And I do not want to fight with the Brazil Football Confederation. I hope they and Chelsea enter into an agreement about my release.”

Chelsea has reportedly sent scouts to watch Ivan Perisic and Jeison Murillo against Genoa.

The incoming Blues manager Antonio Conte decided to send assistants to Luigi Ferraris last night to scout some players during Genoa’s 1-0 win over Inter, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Angelo Alessio, one of his long time assistants, was caught in the stands by the TV cameras.

The scouts have monitored Italian striker Leonardo Pavoletti for Euros call-up and Nerazzurri winger Perisic and centre-back Murillo, as Conte seem to have put them on the top of Chelsea’s wishlist.

Radamel Falcao told NBC’s ProSoccerTalk he would like to play in Major League Soccer after his Chelsea loan, even though his immediate future is in Europe.

The 30-year-old Colombia international striker said: “Some other Colombian players are playing in Major League Soccer and obviously the big stars like Andrea Pirlo, Kaka and Giovani dos Santos.”

“I never say no but in this moment I am thinking about Europe and my performances here, I think I have more years to fight in these leagues.”

Falcao added: “I follow the league. In England they are showing the games and I have some friends who play in there who I played with in River Plate or Porto like Higuain or Valeri.”

“Some other Colombian players are playing in Major League Soccer and obviously the big stars like Andrea Pirlo, Kaka or Giovani dos Santos. I think MLS could be bigger than now because they have everything they need to become an even stronger league and become even more competitive.”

Two of most important rugby coaches Eddie Jones and Steve Borthwick visited Chelsea training ground at Cobham for a day of information-sharing at the elite level of professional sport.

Jones was Grand Slam-winning England rugby union coach and Borthwick  the team’s forwards coach. The first one was also a guest at last weekend game against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

“It is fantastic to come to Chelsea, which is one of the greatest clubs in the world of football,” Jones told the official Chelsea website.

“Guus Hiddink has had a great career and the chance to exchange ideas with him is enormously valuable. I have made an attempt to keep improving myself as a coach and you can only improve by meeting with coaches who are better than you.”
