Frank Lampard has won his first game since returning as manager of Chelsea by beating Bournemouth 3-1 at the Vitality Stadium.
Conor Gallagher had given the visitors an early lead, but Matias Vina’s excellent strike meant the game was level for much of the afternoon.
With nine minutes on the clock, Gallagher ghosted into the Bournemouth area and met N’Golo Kante’s right-wing cross with his head and beat Neto to give Chelsea the lead.
To illustrate Chelsea’s glaring issues in front of goal, that strike was just the third they had scored in seven games since Lampard took charge.
Chelsea remained lively, with Enzo Fernandez firing over soon after, before Mykhaylo Mudryk was booked for simulation in the penalty area.
However, Bournemouth responded midway through the first half with a wonderfully worked team goal which was finished in supreme style by left-back Vina.
The Uruguayan exchanged multiple passes with Ryan Christie and Dominic Solanke before unleashing an unstoppable strike which kissed Kepa Arrizabalaga’s left-hand post, leaving the Spaniard with no chance.
Chelsea took control of the game again though with eight minutes remaining,
when Hakim Ziyech’s wonderful delivery was met by an unmarked Badiashile whose volley was too hot to handle for Neto in the Bournemouth goal as the Blues retook the lead.
Just minutes later, the game was put to bed when some direct running from Raheem Sterling cut through the Cherries’ backline and he was able to set up Felix who finished clinically low to Neto’s right, giving Chelsea a comfortable two-goal lead.
After much criticism since his arrival for a second spell in charge, Lampard got his substitutions spot on this afternoon, with Ziyech, Sterling and Felix all playing important roles in earning them the points.
With some goals to boost confidence among the squad too, Chelsea will be in higher spirits before the face Nottingham Forest at home next weekend.
