Chelsea restored their seven-point cushion at the top of the Premier League table with a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth on Saturday evening. Tottenham saw off Watford 4-0 earlier in the day to cut the gap to four, but Antonio Conte's men sealed three points at the Vitality Stadium to maintain their push for a fifth league title.
Adam Smith gave Chelsea the advantage in the 17th minute as he turned the ball into his own net from a Diego Costa shot, before Eden Hazard superbly slotted home the second not long after. Josh King netted his tenth goal in 11 Premier League games to pull a goal back for the Cherries just before half-time, but Marcos Alonso sealed the three points for the Blues with a sublime free-kick in the 68th minute.
Bournemouth made one change from the midweek draw with Liverpool while Conte welcomed Victor Moses and Nemanja Matic back into the starting XI.
