Chelsea secured their first victory in 10 matches by dbeating Bournemouth 3-1 away from Stamford Bridge, thanks to two late goals

Chelsea went into the game under pressure following their 9 matches winless run but Frank Lampard switched to the three-man defence and it paid off.

The Blue’s nine-game winless streak ends with late goals by Benoit Badiashile and Joao Felix, sealing a 3-1 victory against Bournemouth away from home.

The west London club appeared to be doomed to a point on the south coast as Cherries defender Matias Vina cancelled out Conor Gallagher’s early header.

Before the late drama, Bournemouth had the better of the opportunities, with Dango Ouattara wasting a fantastic opportunity by headed over from inside the six-yard box.

However, Badiashile and Felix punished that frivolity by allowing visiting fans to celebrate the long-awaited victory with sardonic chants of “we are staying up.”

The two-time European champions now have 42 points, three more than their hosts, despite remaining in the lowest part of the league.

For Lampard personally, it was a first victory in 17 matches including his Everton days and his first with Chelsea in 832 days dating back to a 3-1 FA Cup success over Luton in January 2021 during his initial spell as manager.

The former Blues and England midfielder opted for five changes following Tuesday’s tame 3-1 defeat at Arsenal, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling among those dropped, while the Cherries were unchanged from the 4-1 thrashing of Leeds.

Gary O’Neil’s in-form hosts began brighter but after Jefferson Lerma, who scored twice last weekend, curled narrowly wide, Chelsea snatched a ninth-minute lead.

Trevoh Chalobah’s pass afforded N’Golo Kante time and space to deliver an inviting cross from the right wing and recalled midfielder Gallagher beat Adam Smith to the ball to divert a simple, close-range header beyond goalkeeper Neto.

Chelsea supporters responded to the early breakthrough with self-deprecating chants about avoiding relegation and “we’ve scored a goal” after seeing their side net for only the third time in nine outings.
