After claiming just their second win of the Premier League season last time out Bournemouth face a tough task of repeating the trick when they host reigning champions Chelsea on Saturday. 

The Cherries currently sit in 19th position in the top flight and have taken a disappointing seven points from nine games this season.

Their opponents, meanwhile, are in fourth place after claiming 16 points from their nine matches, although the Blues are hardly in sparkling form. 

Eddie Howe will be hoping Joshua King recovers for the clash but he is expected to be without Jermain Defoe (hamstring), Brad Smith (Hip), Tyrone Mings (back) and Adam Federici (knee).

In their last meeting, Bournemouth were beaten 3-1 by Chelsea at the Vitality. The Cherries will be hoping for an improved result this time around but who should Howe pick to tackle Antonio Conte’s side?

Our unique algorithm has predicted the Bournemouth side it believes is most likely to start.

Football Whispers uses data to predict the starting line-ups for sides by accounting for a number of different factors, including injuries, suspensions, the statistical likelihood to play, the match the competition is played, the player’s previous performance and the style of the opposition.

But you can also give it a go yourself. Just click ‘create your own’ on the line-up at the top of the page and pick the XI players you would choose, and you can also see their stats once you’ve picked them.
