Both teams continued their underwhelming starts to the season. Bournemouth, under the guidance of Andoni Iraola, is still seeking its first league victory, while Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea has only managed one win from their five league fixtures.
Chelsea displayed a marginally more threatening attack, with Nicolas Jackson and Raheem Sterling both rattling the woodwork. Levi Colwill had a goal disallowed due to an offside decision.
Cole Palmer, a recent addition to the Blues’ squad, had a late opportunity to snatch victory but directed his shot directly at Bournemouth’s goalkeeper, Neto.
Bournemouth, too, had their moments. Dominic Solanke forced Robert Sanchez into making a save, and he also headed wide in another promising opportunity.
Despite glimpses of promise, neither side managed to break the deadlock, resulting in a frustrating goalless draw that left fans wanting more from both teams.
