It finishes goalless between Bournemouth and Chelsea. Chelsea hit the woodwork twice, with Jackson striking the bottom of the post in the first half before Sterling struck the underside of the crossbar with a lovely free-kick just after the break. Colwill was alert to poke the rebound of that set-piece in from close range, but the offside flag denied him a first Chelsea goal. Neto and Sanchez were both called upon to make big saves in both halves, and neither team could find a way to break the deadlock.
