James And Mount To Start, Havertz On The Bench: Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Bournemouth

After recording four defeats in their last five matches before the World Cup, Chelsea will be hoping for a change of fortunes when they resume their season against Bournemouth tonight.

Manager Graham Potter knows he needs to get some more victories under his belt to get supporters back on side, but he won’t be helped by the number of injuries in the first-team squad.

The Blues have the likes of Wesley Fofana, N’Golo Kante, Ben Chilwell and Armando Broja on the treatment table, while Hakim Ziyech and Mateo Kovacic are not expected to feature following their exploits in Qatar.
