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.”
