One Chelsea player in particular has been singled out for criticism in the first-half of the Blues’ clash with Bournemouth this afternoon.

Maurizio Sarri is looking to avoid suffering the same fate as his predecessors by dropping points to the Cherries at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea sides led by Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte have fallen to defeat at home to Eddie Howe’s side over the past three-years.

After three wins in three leading up to this fixture, Chelsea fans were confident that we would be able to overcome today’s challenge, but the first-half hasn’t been straightforward.

Just like at St. James’, we’ve dominated possession but been unable to create any meaningful chances. Bournemouth have looked rather comfortable camped in their penalty area.

Some Chelsea fans on Twitter have also singled out Willian, who was brought in for Pedro for today’s game, as a reason why we have been unable to penetrate the visitor’s back-line.

Have a look at this. What do you think, Blues? Is this criticism justified?
