Charlie Daniels insists Bournemouth aren’t scared of facing Chelsea this Saturday at Vitality Stadium.

The Cherries famously beat the Blues at Stamford Bridge two years ago, but their record since has left much to be desire, having lost three times and conceded ten goals in their last three outings.

But Daniels is confident they can give the reigning champions a scare come Saturday.

“As a team, we are better prepared. The more we play against the big clubs, the better we are getting. We are getting more accustomed to it,” he told the Daily Echo.

“The win at Chelsea feels a long time ago. It is something you will look back on after you have finished playing and think what a special game it was. These things can happen again and that is what we are looking to do on Saturday.

“If we can start getting more points against the big sides, that will be important for us and we will feel we are going in the right direction.

“We go into every game feeling we can get a result and that is the way we have to go about our business. If you are scared of teams and take a step back, you will get beaten anyway.

“You have to be a man, get on with it and roll your socks up. We have beaten Chelsea before and that was down to hard work and graft.”
