Bournemouth deservedly came away with all three points on Saturday as they overcame Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Dan Gosling struck with just six minutes remaining to give his side the lead, with VAR being put to good use. The visitors held on to secure a much-needed win. As for the Blues, it was a woeful display.
But, before all of that, let’s rewind to the start.
It was a frantic start to the game, with both sides looking to get on the front foot. However, it was the hosts who had the first notable chance as Mason Mount saw his shot well saved by Aaron Ramsdale…

However, the tempo of the game slowed drastically, with the Blues struggling to break down Eddie Howe’s defence
Frustrations were beginning to grow…
Willian and failing to beat the first man from a corner, name a more iconic duo, I’ll wait… #CHEBOU

Meanwhile, it was all becoming a bit emotional for some (well, one)…
Well, it was bound to happen, wasn’t it?
Bournemouth were growing into the contest and looked the more likely to score, with Josh King continuing to waste chance, after chance, after chance, after chance (you get the picture).
But, with six minutes remaining, Dan Gosling stepped up to produce a stunning finish to give his side the lead. As the ball came back into the box following a corner, he watched the ball drop before flicking it over Kepa.
No…it was ruled out for offside. But, VAR was put to good use and the perfectly good goal stood.
You have every right to be angry…..but we deserved this…..fuck*ng horrible perfomance…..just so embarrassing #CHEBOU

It was turning into a miserable afternoon for Chelsea.
After the goal had gone in, they barely even looked like finding an equaliser. It was another defeat for Lampard and his men…
Chelsea transfer Ban was lifted and Chelsea winning got banned in the EPL #CHEBOU

The mindset to win and temperament is missing in current squad at Chelsea!!
Trying to get goal by hook or crook! Too many defensive errors and too many mistakes!
Come on guys, get your shit together and play as a team! #CHEBOU

That was very poor today. We have to find a way to cope with teams who stay organised and get in our face. Our passing was terrible today. I lost count of the amount of times we gave it away whilst under little or no pressure. We will be out of the top 6 by new year. #CHEBOU

Chelsea will be hoping to bounce back as they prepare to take on London rivals Tottenham on Sunday. As for Bournemouth, they will go into their clash with Burnley full of confidence.
