Chelsea held to scoreless draw by battling bournemouth0

The second straight Premier League game in which Chelsea has failed to score came on Sunday at the Vitality Stadium as its much-maligned assault was held to a goalless draw by Bournemouth.

Chelsea controlled possession in the first half after their 1-0 league loss to Nottingham Forest. Nicolas Jackson struck the foot of the post in the 14th minute, and Conor Gallagher wasted a fantastic chance just after the half-hour mark.

Early in the second half, the visitors had the ball in the net when Levi Colwill scored on a rebound after Raheem Sterling’s free kick hit the angle of the post and crossbar. However, the goal was disallowed for offside.

Bournemouth clung on for a draw that lifts them up to 15th position on three points, two points and one place below Chelsea. They had many good opportunities and goalie Neto made an incredible one-handed save to deny Chelsea replacement Cole Palmer.
