BOURNEMOUTH 4, CHELSEA 0

Bournemouth scored four goals for the third time this season despite the absence of top goalscorer Callum Wilson, who had minor knee surgery.

The England striker has scored 11 goals for the Cherries this season, but King and Brooks showed they still carry a threat without him.

The hosts did not have many chances but were clinical in front of goal – scoring four goals from just six shots in a blistering second half.

But they were also impressive at the opposite end of the pitch as well.

The talented Brooks has had an impressive first season in the top flight, and his defensive display in man-marking Jorginho prevented Chelsea finding openings despite large spells of possession.

Following the game, Howe said it was something his side had worked on.

“David did a brilliant job beyond his years with his diligence, and then he showed his class at the other end as well so I’m pleased for him,” said Howe.
