Chelsea 2-0 AFC Bournemouth

Chelsea join Liverpool in winning first four matches of the season with 2-0 success against AFC Bournemouth

Maurizio Sarri extended his perfect Premier League record as Chelsea beat AFC Bournemouth 2-0.

It was the Blues who had come closest to breaking the deadlock in the first half, when Marcos Alonso hit the post with a scuffed shot.

Nathan Ake missed the chance to put AFC Bournemouth ahead, before substitute Pedro gave Chelsea a 72nd-minute lead following a pass from Olivier Giroud.

In the 85th minute, Alonso teed up Eden Hazard to score for the second consecutive match.

Their fourth successive win takes Chelsea up to second place, level on 12 points with leaders Liverpool.
