Bournemouth Stuns Chelsea At The Bridge

Bournemouth recorded a shock 1-0 win at Chelsea for their under-pressure manager Eddie Howe as VAR came to the fore late on to award Dan Gosling’s winning goal.

Gosling’s looping effort (84) was originally disallowed for offside by the referee but a VAR check revealed that it was Dominic Solanke that was in an offside position and, as he was not interfering with play, the goal was given.

The Cherries had to rely on their goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale, to make some crucial stops but Chelsea rarely carried the quality in the final third. Frank Lampard’s men have now lost four of their last five Premier League games and are now looking over their shoulders in the race for the top four.

Meanwhile, this win broke a run of five straight defeats for Howe, who were without a number of key players through injury, including Nathan Ake and Callum Wilson.
