Cole Palmer, Raheem Sterling, Levi Colwill and Conor Gallagher all came close to scoring but the Cherries also troubled Chelsea’s backline during a closely fought contest.
Big signings Nicolas Jackson, Enzo Fernandez and Mykhailo Mudryk all struggled as Mauricio Pochettino’s changed failed to provide a spark.
Nizaar Kinsella was at the Vitality Stadium witnessing the action.
Robert Sanchez - 9
Exceptional in everything he had to do, particularly his huge first-half save from a close-range Dango Outtara shot and one later with his feet from Dominic Solanke.
Malo Gusto - 7
Linked well with Sterling, crossing to create two chances for his teammate in the first half.
Axel Disasi - 6
Performed well for most of the match but gave away a second-half free-kick in a dangerous area with a bad tackle.
Thiago Silva - 7
A vocal leader on the pitch despite not taking the armband, helping to coach the team on the pitch.
Levi Colwill - 6
Marginally offside when turning in Sterling’s rebounded free-kick. Almost scored again later in the second half and saw Bournemouth target his side.
Lesley Ugochukwu - 7
Starting in place of Caicedo, the 19-year-old looked assured in possession. There’s a lot of promise there and he seems a bargain at just £23million.
Conor Gallagher - 7
Gallagher captained Chelsea and helped the midfield perform without Caicedo, helping in both attack and defence.
Raheem Sterling - 7
Impactful with his dribbling as ever and hit the bar with a stunning free-kick early in the second half.
Enzo Fernandez - 5
Lacked threat playing as a no10 despite having Chelsea’s first shot of the match. Taken off with the game in the balance.
Mykhailo Mudryk - 5
Mudryk was lively on his first start for Pochettino getting some joy through his pace, winning free-kicks and getting in behind. He did, however, often make the wrong decision in the final third, notably overhitting a third minute cross which should have led to a goal. He was taken off in the 63rd minute.
Nicolas Jackson - 5
Jackson was also wasteful in front of goal, continuing to rush any half chances he got. He hit the post in the 13th minute with a long-range shot.
Cole Palmer - 6
Made a huge impact from the bench, seeing a shot immediately blocked after coming on and having another saved by Neto in the 85th minute.
Ian Maatsen - 6
Saw a shot blocked by Marcos Senesi inside the area, a bright cameo as a no10.
Ben Chilwell - 6
Back at left-back, Chilwell couldn’t influence the match in any significant way.
Unused subs: Petrovic, Bergstrom, Gilchrist, Matos, Stutter, Washington.
