  1. Goodbye

    Chelsea 2-0 Bournemouth

    Tough on Bournemouth who produced a stubborn defensive performance but were undone by two quality finishes.

    There are positives in defeat for Eddie Howe though.

    Many thanks for your company.

    You can read a report on this game on the BBC Sport website.

    Until next time...

  2. FULL-TIME

    Chelsea 2-0 Bournemouth

    Chelsea make it four wins out of four.

    The last time they did that at the start of the season they went on to win the Premier League.

  3. 'Hazard deserves that'

    Chelsea 2-0 Bournemouth

    Danny Mills

    Former England defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    An absolutely magnificent finish from Eden Hazard

    He deserves that from the way he has been playing in this game.

    It's power that beats Begovic.

  4. GOAL - Chelsea 2-0 Bournemouth

    Eden Hazard

    Surely that's four wins out of four!

    Eden Hazard produces a quality finish - burying the ball from an angle to double his side's advantage.

    Bournemouth look like they are going home empty handed.

  5. SUBSTITUTION

  6. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Bournemouth

    Yes, but what's happened to the pigeon Danny?

  7. 'The deflection played a huge part'

    Chelsea 1-0 Bournemouth

    Danny Mills

    Former England defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    Big deflection on that goal as the ball goes in.

    It's a great move form Chelsea which they've done so many times in this game

    As Pedro fires in the shot it takes a deflection and it means a wrong-footed Begovic can't get across. It loops agonisingly into the far corner.

    It's definitely Pedro's goal but the deflection paid a huge part in it.

  8. GOAL - Chelsea 1-0 Bournemouth

    Pedro

    Super sub Pedro!

    That's a beauty from the Spaniard who exchanges passes with fellow sub Olivier Giroud before finding the corner of the net with a drilled finish.

    Suddenly, Stamford Bridge is loud and proud in the September sunshine.

  9. YELLOW CARD

    Chelsea 0-0 Bournemouth

    Jefferson Lerma marks his Premier League debut with a yellow card.

    No complaints from Bournemouth's record signing for a late challenge from behind on Eden Hazard.

  10. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 Bournemouth

    Mateo Kovacic with two attempts - both blocked.

    Olivier Giroud is trying to make a difference but the substitute is frustrated when his volley hits a team-mate and flies behind for a goal kick.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Chelsea 0-0 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth's travelling fans are getting louder and louder.,

    Chelsea make another change. This time Pedro - dropped from the starting line-up - is on for Willian.

    Can he inspire the Blues?

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Chelsea 0-0 Bournemouth

    Here comes the cavalry.

    Chelsea need a goal and here's Olivier Giroud for Alvaro Morata.

  13. Post update

    Asmir Begovic - loving his return to Stamford Bridge.

  14. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 Bournemouth

    Massive chance for Bournemouth!

    Nathan Ake - against his old club - from THREE YARDS out. He puts it over.

    Incredible miss. Chelsea should be behind.

  15. 'Fabulous save'

    Chelsea 0-0 Bournemouth

    Danny Mills

    Former England defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    Fabulous save from Begovic. Great play from Hazard, he does what he does best and dummies his man.

    That's the first real quality save Begovic has had to make from a great shot from Alonso.

  16. YELLOW CARD

    Chelsea 0-0 Bournemouth

    A Bournemouth counter results in a yellow card for N'Golo Kante for dragging down Callum Wilson.

  17. GREAT SAVE!

    Chelsea 0-0 Bournemouth

    Asmir Begovic is loving his return to Stamford Bridge.

    The former Chelsea keeper is down quickly to keep out a low attempt by Marcos Alonso.

    Great stuff from the Bournemouth keeper.

  18. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 Bournemouth

    Stubborn and resolute. That's Bournemouth.

    Frustrated and impatient. That's Chelsea.

  19. 'More of the same from Chelsea

    Chelsea 0-0 Bournemouth

    Danny Mills

    Former England defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    The second half has started much as we had at the end of the first.

    Chelsea are popping the ball around and Bournemouth are sitting deep.

    They are resolute and denying Chelsea any clear-cut chances.

    And for anyone who s wondering, the pigeon is back!

    Also, I asked the referee at half time and he said if the ball hit the pigeon and went in the net, the goal would be disallowed!

  20. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 Bournemouth

    Chelsea have Olivier Giroud, Pedro, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley among their options on the bench.

    How long before Sarri makes his first switch?
