Chelsea get play restarted as the second half gets underway!

Despite the opening 30 minutes that saw a good chunk of the action camped in their own half, Bournemouth still proved themselves to be a danger on the counter – especially with King and Brooks using their tempo and guile to give their visitors something to think about during the interval.

Chelsea had almost 70% possession, but aside from Kovacic's seventh-minute header that rolled the crossbar, they did not have any clear chance at Boruc's goal. Debutant Higuain has been effectively marshalled by Cook and Ake, but the ever-dangerous Hazard has been his usual electric self before the break. More inventiveness is needed from Sarri's men in order for them to unlock the hosts' so far solid defense.
