Chelsea's form in the Premier League continued to deteriorate as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
A dire display against Eddie Howe's men shattered any Chelsea hopes that progression to the Champions League last 16 – achieved by a midweek win over Lille – would reinvigorate a team who had lost three of their previous four domestic league matches.
Bournemouth’s winner six minutes from time was initially ruled out for offside, but a VAR review showed Dan Gosling was onside before he superbly hooked over Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Chelsea's gap over fifth place could be lessened to two points on Sunday if Manchester United win Everton or Wolves defeat Tottenham.
