Chelsea played a very good game. After an hour, they took their foot off the gas, but by then the job was already done. They needed those three points to avoid losing for the fourth time in a row.
WHY IT MATTERS
Chelsea moves up one spot in the live league table to eighth. They are now only six points behind fourth-place Spurs, who have played one less game. Bournemouth still sits in 14th place, three points above the bottom three teams.
