Alonso Stunner restore Chelsea Seven Point And Edge Closer To Title


Chelsea continued their march to the Premier League title by restoring their seven-point lead at the top of the table with a 3-1 win at Bournemouth on Saturday.

It was an even start, but Chelsea took the advantage in the 17th minute. A ball forward from David Luiz picked out Moses on the right and his cross reached Diego Costa, who sliced his attempted shot. But it nestled into the back of the net after being diverted goalwards by the body of Smith.

The Blues increased their tally when N’Golo Kante, excellent in both winning the ball and moving the visitors forward, found the equally impressive Eden Hazard with a precision long pass, allowing the galloping Belgian to round home keeper Artur Boruc.

Bournemouth cut the deficit three minutes before half-time, with King scoring his 10th goal in his last 11 Premier League games, although his 20-yard drive needed a deflection off Luiz to beat Courtois.

Chelsea added their third of the game when  Costa was fouled at the top of the box by Steve Cook to win a Blues free-kick, which Alonso stepped up and curled a brilliant free-kick over the wall and into the top corner with Boruc only able to watch it on its way through as Conte’s men moved a step closer to Premier League glory.
