EPL 2016-17: Chelsea outplay Bournemouth, set up a new club record

EPL 2016-17: Chelsea outplay Bournemouth, set up a new club record

In control long before Pedro put them ahead with a superb individual strike in the 24th minute, they effectively killed off Bournemouth's hopes with Eden Hazard's 49th-minute penalty before Pedro's deflected second wrapped up the win.

England great Stuart Pearce believes N'Golo Kante is the key reason as to the Blues' fantastic run in the Premier League this term.

"We took the three points and they are very important because these types of games are very hard and very tough. I tried to make the best decision for the team". Two-footed, pacy, and willing to do the extra running that inevitably opened up space for his more creative teammates, Pedro thrived even when it seemed there were players with more natural ability who could take his place.

Antonio Conte's side can edge ever closer to Arsenal's Premier League record of 14 consecutive wins when they face Stoke at the Bridge on Saturday.

Pedro broke the deadlock with a superb opener after the Spain worldwide curled a finish past Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc in the first half at Stamford Bridge despite a confident start from the visitors.

A brace by Pedro Rodriguez and a spot kick from Hazard was all the Blues needed to set a new club record of 12 wins in 12 on Monday, December 26.

City lost the recalled John Stones to an early injury and were made to sweat before second-half goals from Yaya Toure and substitute Kelechi Iheanacho secured victory at Hull.

Pedro completed the tally in the last minute.

"In the end we had to be patient against a well-organised West Brom side".

We proved that past year by defeating Chelsea and Manchester United in a short period of time. Four minutes later, Ibrahimovic sent in a cross behind Henrikh Mkhitaryan who flicked the ball into the net with a spectacular back-heeled volley.

United are now level on points with Tottenham, who visit Southampton tomorrow.

Manchester United were in command all day against Sunderland as former boss David Moyes had another disappointing day at Old Trafford but the game remained tense until the latter stages as the hosts missed a series of chances.
