Bournemouth wrecked Chelsea's eight-match unbeaten league run with three goals in a 16-minute spell to leave Chelsea only two points above Tottenham Hotspur in fourth place, draining all the optimism generated by the £18m signing of Olivier Giroud earlier in the day. Let's not even mention that we are close to slipping out of the top four in the Premier League. It will not be easy. "I wanted to stay in the Premier League, and Chelsea for me is ideal because I can even stay in London", added the France worldwide. We must be prepared to fight and ready to do this.

The Cherries were placed 28 on the list, ahead of Benfica who featured in the Champions League this season and narrowly behind Italian giants AS Roma and AC Milan.

Conte, who reiterated his claim that merely finishing in the top four would represent a "great success" for the defending Premier League champions, is expecting Giroud to make an impact when he is fully fit, while there is less expectation on fellow new arrival, Emerson Palmieri.

"I hope in the future for the medical department to sort this situation out".

"But I think the players, until now, are great". "It's a huge moment for us this season". "My task is to try to be more realistic if possible and try to transfer this to the players, because the players if they know and understand the danger". If I see there is no pressure.it's not [good] for me or the players when the situation is too calm and relaxed.

Although Chelsea started the game without a recognised striker, with Alvaro Morata injured and new signing Olivier Giroud not registered in time, they will still be disappointed not to have scored against a side who have conceded 36 times already this season.

South Korea and Japan seem to be adopting crypto through the process of regulating it versus trying to ban it outright. It's not entirely clear when, how or even whether South Korea intends to crackdown on cryptocurrency global transfers.

The win moved Bournemouth up to 10th place, although they remain just five points clear of the bottom three.

"My ambition is to win some trophies".

"There was no luck connected today".

"We know their qualities and I think everybody will need to be 100 per cent to go through. We're improving, we're getting stronger, we were very fearless in our approach".

Wenger has attracted flak from a section of the fan base for allowing Giroud to join rivals in Chelsea, but the Frenchman understands why his compatriot wanted to stay in London. Expect Gracia to name a strong side and give us a few problems on Monday.
