Antonio Conte’s side, who have already beaten the Cherries once this season, have looked strong at Stamford Bridge, having won five of their last six matches there in all competitions.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, are without a win in six and are unlikely to cause Chelsea many issues, given their lacklustre form in front of goal.

Chelsea vs Bournemouth match preview

Chelsea saw off both Nottingham Forrest and Everton to book their place in this stage of the Carabao Cup.

Back-to-back wins over Huddersfield and Southampton have helped them to overcome their disaster at the London Stadium and Conte’s side now look full of confidence once again.

En route to the last eight of the competition, Bournemouth knocked out Birmingham, Brighton and Middlesbrough.

However, Eddie Howe’s side enter this quarter-final showdown without a win in six and were comprehensively beaten by Liverpool on Sunday.

Both sides met earlier in the season, on the South Coast, with Chelsea leaving victorious, courtesy of a solitary Eden Hazard goal.

Chelsea: Willian’s impact

The Brazilian has proven to be a pivotal impact player for the Blues this season.

The forward has managed an impressive combined total of 12 goals and assists in just 12 starts this season.

Willian is likely to feature on Wednesday and is sure to have another point to prove.

The 29-year-old has been an extremely effective figure for Chelsea and one which Conte must look to utilise more often.

Bournemouth: Effectiveness in front of goal

Only three Premier League sides have scored fewer goals than Bournemouth this season, which has proven to be a real issue as of late for the Cherries.

Aforementioned, they are winless in six and a real tentativeness in front of goal has been the main cause for this poor run of form.

Forwards Jermaine Defoe, Callum Wilson and Josh King have managed just 12 goals between them so far this season.

Howe will know that as they gear up for their most important fixture of the season so far, at Stamford Bridge, they will need to be opportunistic and find a source of goals.
