The Blues went on the World Cup break from the 8th position in the Premier League standings with only 6 victories in the inaugural 14 outings.
Chelsea match will be played around the stated time in UK.
The team have made a managerial change in the process as Thomas Tuchel was replaced by the former Brighton manager Graham Potter.
The mason Mount side will take on Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge in their first Premier League game after the World Cup break. The Blues are not enjoying a season to remember, and they are on a three-game losing run ahead of Tuesday’s clash.
Date: 27 December 2022, Tuesday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
Also, Chelsea will try to turn a new page after the World Cup as they desperately want to forget the dismal campaign from the opening 14 rounds of the season.
Potter failed to instill his philosophy into Chelsea’s players in his first several games at Stamford Bridge.
He has now had an additional month to bed in all of the required pieces for a successful campaign and it will be very interesting which Chelsea face we are going to see after the World Cup break.
Croatia midfielder Mateo Kovacic and Morocco winger Hakim Ziyech should be rested following their appearance in the World Cup semis, while all Chilwell, Broja, Loftus-Cheek, and Kante remain in the treatment room.
And meanwhile, the Cherries desperately needed a win against Everton, and they managed to get one in style (3-0), with the team putting an end to their four-match losing run in the Premier League.
Again, be noted that for Bournemouth, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Chelsea’s party in London.
