Struggling Chelsea Languish In 14th Place After Goalless Draw With Bournemouth

Chelsea’s woes in the English Premier League continue as they played out a goalless draw with Bournemouth.

Gatekeepers News reports that Manager Mauricio Pochettino faces a challenging task as he tries to turn things around with a squad that includes several younger players.

Chelsea has struggled to find the net, going two games without a goal and scoring only five times this season.

Chelsea has only managed just five points from five games and placing them in the 14th position on the league table.

While it’s too early to suggest Pochettino is in danger of being sacked, the pressure is mounting to improve results.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won just once in five league games this term and they were booed off after lacking any semblance of a cutting edge at the Vitality Stadium.

The Blues are without a goal in their last two matches and have scored only five times in the league this season.

The former Tottenham and Paris Saint Germain boss, Pochettino has so far been unable to make an impact despite Chelsea’s £350 million spending spree on new signings.

In the match, Chelsea made some notable changes from their previous game, including leaving out Moises Caicedo, a big-money summer signing, from the squad and giving teenager Lesley Ugochukwu his first Premier League start.

Chelsea attempted to take control early in the game, but Enzo Fernandez’s shot from the edge of the area was saved by Neto, and Raheem Sterling missed a golden opportunity with a wayward shot. Nicolas Jackson came close when his strike hit the post from 20 yards out.

Despite Chelsea’s promising start, their defense was nearly exposed as Dango Ouattara had a close-range effort saved by Robert Sanchez. Conor Gallagher had a chance to put Chelsea ahead but was denied by a diving save from Neto.

Chelsea thought they had scored, but Levi Colwill’s effort was disallowed for offside after Sterling’s free-kick hit the bar.

Bournemouth finished the game strongly, and Axel Disasi narrowly avoided conceding a penalty. Sanchez made a crucial save with his legs to deny Dominic Solanke’s strike in the 80th minute.

Philip Billing’s free-kick deflected just wide, and Sterling had a late header saved by Neto, who also made an instinctive stop to deny Cole Palmer’s close-range volley.
