  • Bournemouth's likely line-up

"I can say that I am really very happy with him because, in the last 10 days, he has improved a lot".

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri praised his side following a 2-0 win against Bournemouth and suggested that Marcos Alonso could become the best left-back in the world.

Sarri was also asked why Loftus-Cheek hasn't featured more often so far this season, to which he replied: "Because he has to improve, just in order to play my football". We go to Chelsea and we know how hard the game is going to be.

"I think whatever the teams coming up after that, keep taking these three points".

He also acknowledged that Eddie Howe set his Bournemouth side to defend and counterattack: "They are very organised defensively, and defended very well".

Chelsea assumed early control with close to 85 per cent of the possession in the first 20 minutes, but a half-chance for Alvaro Morata that was blocked by Asmir Begovic was the best they could muster.

"I think they'll improve as the season goes on", said the Bournemouth manager.

"In the first half it was very hard to play - we needed to move the ball at a higher speed - but it wasn't easy".

It is hard to imagine better strikers not having a field day against Luiz and you suspect weighing his brilliant ball distribution against his defensive lapses will be a constantly shifting equation for Sarri, particularly as Andreas Christensen waits for his chance on the bench. Giroud is no more the solution to Chelsea's striker problems, but his superior all-round contribution against stubborn opponents means Sarri faces a big decision. "The gap at the beginning [to Manchester City] was 30 points [from last season]".

Chelsea's win masked another hard day for Alvaro Morata, who was largely ineffective before being replaced by Olivier Giroud in the 61st minute. Chelsea played well, created any number of openings but Bournemouth too had their chances and their misses, and there was much to admire about the way they dealt with Chelsea's hugely talented team.
