Chelsea 0-3 Bournemouth player ratings, stats and reaction: Former Blues ace Ake steals the show as Conte’s side’s poor run continues

Chelsea suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge this evening, as the Blues’ poor form continued.

The away side took the lead through Callum Wilson, after Tiemoue Bakayoko gave the ball away before Wilson was put through and slotted home to give the Cherries the advantage.

Eddie Howe’s side then doubled their advantage, as some neat play from Wilson and Stanislas saw the former West Ham winger slot home.

Nathan Ake then scored against his former club just minutes later, as the defender turned home a shot from Stanislas to all but wrap up the points for the Cherries.

Following the result, Chelsea have now won just two of their last nine games in all competitions, a very poor run of form.

Player of the Match

Former Blues defender Nathan Ake was fantastic tonight, with the Dutchman leading the Cherries’ defence against the reigning Premier League champions.

As well as being solid at the back, Ake also managed to contribute in the goals department, as he grabbed his side’s third in their rout at the Bridge.

Flop of the Match

Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko had an absolute shocker today, with the Frenchman putting in a lacklustre performance against Bournemouth.

The former Monaco man was at fault for Bournemouth’s second goal, a strike that all but ended the Blues’ chances of getting back in the match
