EPL: Chelsea Ends Goals Drought, Beat Bournemouth To End 10-game Losing Run

Chelsea FC, has on Saturday, May 6, won for the first time since March 11, and picked up their first points under interim manager, Frank Lampard, by beating Bournemouth 3-1 at the Vitality Stadium.

Recall, Chelsea had six consecutive defeats since Lampard took charge at the beginning of April, Chelsea were in danger of equalling an unwanted club record of seven straight losses in all competitions, but Conor Gallagher’s early header in the 9th minute and late strikes from Benoit Badiashile in the 82nd minute and Joao Felix in the 86th minute ensured the Blues left the south coast with a morale-boosting victory.

The result ended Lampard’s 10-game losing run in his 100th match as a manager and sees Chelsea end the day 11th in the table, three points and three places above Bournemouth, who drop to 14th.

Bournemouth travel to Crystal Palace next Saturday before hosting Manchester United on May 20.

The Cherries then make the trip to relegation-threatened Everton on the final day of the season.

Up next for Chelsea is a home game against strugglers Nottingham Forest next Saturday.

The Blues then travel to Manchester City on May 21 and Manchester United on May 25 before hosting Newcastle on the final day.

Meanwhile, Tottenham striker, Harry Kane, moved into second place in the Premier League’s all-time scoring list as his goal sealed a 1-0 win against Crystal Palace.

The England captain broke the deadlock in first half stoppage-time with a powerful header from Pedro Porro’s cross.

Kane climbed ahead of Wayne Rooney onto 209 Premier League goals, with Alan Shearer’s record of 260 in his sights next.

Sixth-placed Tottenham are six points adrift of the top four after winning for the first time in five games.
