Chelsea vs Bournemouth predictions and betting tips for tonight’s Carabao Cup quarter final match at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are favourites to win this match and Bournemouth have fallen into a bad spell of form after a good start to the season.
Expert Tipster Prediction: Eddie Howe’s side made a flying start to the season but they’ve only won one of their last seven matches now and are the underdogs tonight. It looks set to be another win for Chelsea here but Bournemouth can certainly get on the scoresheet at Stamford Bridge.
After losing just two of their first 13 matches this season, AFC Bournemouth have now lost six of their last seven matches and are conceding plenty of goals. They’ve shipped 16 in those seven matches and that will be a concern for Eddie Howe. When they played in the Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge they were beaten 2-0 but our tipster thinks they’ll get on the scoresheet tonight. They got a goal in their defeat at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City and with this being the League Cup, goals do usually come easier. Chelsea’s match in the last round ended 3-2 against Derby and Bournemouth have scored in four of their last five away games. The first of tonight’s Chelsea vs Bournemouth predictions for the League Cup game is Chelsea to win and BTTS.
There is no question who the star man has been for Chelsea once again this season – Edin Hazard continues to improve and he’s having arguably his best season in a Chelsea shirt. He got the vital winner against Liverpool earlier in this competition and was rested in the last round against Derby – so it remains to be seen if Maurizio Sarri plays him here. One player who should be in from the start and is thriving in cup games this season is Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The midfielder scored a hat-trick in the Europa League earlier this season and is expected to start the match tonight. Loftus-Cheek is our selection for our anytime goalscorer tips today.

We’re already tipping a Chelsea victory in our betting tips for tonight and we can back that up with a correct score bet. The hosts should have enough quality to win this match even though our tipster fancies Bournemouth to get on the scoresheet. The selection is going to be a 2-1 home win. It is hard to predict how both managers will set up for the match given that the busy Christmas period is now upon us, so the likes of Kante, Jorginho and Hazard might get a rest for Chelsea.
