Dan Gosling condemned Chelsea to a fourth defeat in five Premier League matches as Bournemouth triumphed 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. Gosling struck an 84th-minute winner when he flicked the ball over Kepa Arrizabalaga and into the net despite standing with his back to goal, ending Bournemouth’s run of five successive league losses.
Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth headed into the clash missing eight injured senior players and fretting about the source of their next league victory. The Cherries had not won since seeing off Manchester United 1-0 at home on November 2, and would have expected a stern test in the capital.
Kepa was made to pay for another bout of poor positioning, while Chelsea were punished for an incoherent and toothless display that will have left boss Frank Lampard far from impressed.
