Bournemouth travel to Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day and Arsenal loanee, Jack Wilshere, hopes his team can put an end to Chelsea’s winning streak.
The midfielder has gone from strength to strength with the Cherries, securing a regular starting spot and impressing. However, he’s still a Gunner and the 24-year-old has admitted that he wants to take points off Chelsea in order to help his parent club.
Chelsea have only conceded two goals since Arsenal beat them 3-0 at the Emirates in September and they’re now six points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Although their past few games haven’t exactly been anything to write home about, narrow 1-0 wins against West Brom, Sunderland and Crystal Palace, they’ve still found a winner, which is, annoyingly, indicative that they could well go on to win the league unless someone stops them.
Could the Cherries be that ‘someone’?
“I want to get a result to help Arsenal,” admitted Wilshere recently.
It’s a nice thought. I’m hoping Bournemouth can take at least a couple of points off our title rivals, if they really count as rivals anymore. However, I can’t see anything but a Chelsea win.
