Twitter Reacts As Bournemouth Thump Chelsea 3-0 At Stamford Bridge

There was a surprise result at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night as relegation-threatened Bournemouth came away with all three points following a commanding 3-0 win over Chelsea. 

The Premier League champions lined out without a recognised striker, with Eden Hazard playing up top. Olivier Giroud joined from Arsenal earlier in the day, meaning he was not signed in time to feature for the Blues, while Michy Batshuayi has departed for a loan move to Borussia Dortmund until the end of the season and Alvaro Morata was absent with a back injury.

Callum Wilson, Junior Stanislas and former Chelsea player Nathan Ake all found the net for Eddie Howe’s side in the second half.

Ake left Chelsea last summer in search of regular playing time and will surely feel delighted with his contribution upon his return to the Bridge.

The upset moves the visitors three points clear of the relegation zone and could prove crucial in the fight for survival come May.

For Antonio Conte’s side, this result will come as a big blow. Seeing as Manchester United went down 2-0 to Tottenham at Wembley on the same night, the Blues missed an opportunity to move level on points with Jose Mourinho’s team in the league.

Here is a sample of the reaction to the result on Twitter…

Other results in the Premier League went as follows:

Everton 2 vs. Leicester City 1

Newcastle 1 vs. Burnley FC 1

Man. City 3 vs. West Brom 0

Stoke City 0 vs. Watford 0
