Bournemouth 4-0 Chelsea: 5 takeaways | Premier League 2018-19
- A list of talking points from Chelsea's heavy defeat away at Bournemouth.
#4 Joshua King steps up in Wilson's absence
Callum Wilson's absence from the matchday squad would be a relief to any squad, given his current form, and Chelsea would have had a sigh of relief as well. But what they didn't come prepared for was Joshua King who has been having a good season, and had gone under the radar due to the step up in performances of Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson.
Nonetheless, the Norwegian international stepped up and proved to be a thorn for the Chelsea defense on the night. With Bournemouth's fixtures stacked, King could prove to be more than useful, and bag himself some goals till Wilson gets back from his knee injury.
Although there had been a dip in his form, having scored against West Ham and now Chelsea, he may have found his scoring touch yet again.
It is time for Bournemouth to challenge for the Europa League places.Published 31 Jan 2019, 11:29 IST
