'Will Chelsea build around Fabregas?'

Bournemouth 1-4 Chelsea

Ruud Gullit

Former Chelsea manager

"Both teams had nothing to play for, it was sunny , beautiful weather and Cesc Fabregas had all the space he needed to play well. He ran the show.

"If you give him that space it becomes easy. He needs to be better against Chelsea's rivals. Against PSG the midfield ran over him. Conte made a system especially at Juventus for Pirlo. Could he do the same again?"

'Chelsea will be tough for Tottenham'

Bournemouth 1-4 Chelsea

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender on Match of the Day

"The Tottenham players are probably listening to Hazard saying they want Leicester to win the league and are being goaded by it. It will be a tough game for Tottenham playing Chelsea."

Bournemouth 1-4 Chelsea

Disappointing result today but delighted for our Captain @TommyElph4 on getting the goal been a tough year for him #Leader #Cherries ©🍒

Good performance and result for us today, we worked hard and deserved this win. Thanks for the support! #CFC

'We're still finding our feet'

Bournemouth 1-4 Chelsea

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: "It was an even game, certainly for the first half I thought we were terrific - the difference between the sides was how they finished their goals.

"We created a number of chances but didn't have their clinical edge. Second half, they were better and I thought Chelsea's attitude to the game was spot on, that's why it ended up being such a high quality game.

"The beauty of our run-in, which is so tough on paper, is that we're learning all the time. We're still finding our feet at this level, they've been harsh lessons for us but hopefully we'll come out of it a better team."

'We talked about playing Hazard for 45 minutes'

Bournemouth 1-4 Chelsea

Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink: "We're very pleased with the performance, especially in the second half.

"It was a very open, entertaining game. Bournemouth have a very good build-up and create good chances.

"It was good discipline and good to see some players who have been absent recently, scoring goals.

"We worked with Eden Hazard for the last 10 days, his movement was good and we talked about playing him for 45 minutes or perhaps more, but in the end he was enjoying it and he came through the whole game."

Man of the match - Cesc Fabregas

Fabregas

He did not exactly run the game, but a hat-trick of assists is pretty influential and Fabregas' total of 91 passes was 27 more than anyone else in his side

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas provided three assists in the game – almost as many as he had provided in his 32 Premier League appearances this season before today (four). He provided 18 assists in the Premier League last season.

Team news

Bournemouth 1-4 Chelsea

Bournemouth make two changes from their 2-1 loss to Liverpool, with Marc Pugh and Lewis Grabban coming in for Max Gradel and Matt Ritchie. Callum Wilson is on the bench as he continues his return from injury and he is joined by Benik Afobe.  

Bournemouth
.

Three changes for Chelsea. The big news is Eden Hazard makes his first start after a five-game absence with a hip/groin injury - Ruben Loftus-Cheek makes way. Gary Cahill is ill, so John Mikel Obi will play at centre-half with Nemanja Matic coming into midfield. Thibaut Courtios is suspended and is replaced by Asmir Begovic.

'It is unfair to dig out Lescott'

Aston Villa 2-4 Southampton

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender on Match of the Day

"I feel it is unfair to dog Lescott out. It is more of a collective thing. Hutton allows a two-on-one to develop for the first goal. The marking is terrible and these are basics.

"We know Lescott is not the quickest. For the second goal they are going backwards when they should be going forward and it left him exposed.

"They need to analyse well and work on the training pitch to put the basics right."

'Love Long's movement'

Aston Villa 2-4 Southampton

Ruud Gullit

Former Chelsea manager

"I like the movement of Shane Long, he always gets in behind the opposition. He stretches the game.

"When you play on the counter-attack he is a brilliant option."

Man of the Match - Shane Long

BBC Sport's James Gheerbrant was in no doubt who stood out from the rest.

"The Republic of Ireland forward scored one goal and set up two others, and also took on opposition players 20 times - more than anyone else on the pitch," he wrote.

'Fans entitled to vent anger'

Aston Villa 2-4 Southampton

.

Aston Villa caretaker manager Eric Black: "The fans are entitled to vent their displeasure. It's not an ideal atmosphere, but it's understandable, given the circumstances. We have to continue to be professional."

On the game: "We did get a response under difficult circumstances, but it wasn't enough to win the game.

"We conceded poor goals that put us on the back foot."

'Strange atmosphere'

Aston Villa 2-4 Southampton

.
.

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman: "It was difficult because it was a strange atmosphere - but even more so for the home team. It's a shame that Aston Villa have been relegated because it is a great club and stadium. I hope they are back before too long.

"Scoring four goals away from home is good but we conceded two and that is not like Southampton. We gave Villa the belief that they could get a better result. In the end, we were by far the better team. It was a good result finally, and we're on to the next game."

Sharp Saints shred Villa defence

Aston Villa 2-4 Southampton

Southampton's front three of Shane Long, Dusan Tadic and Jay Rodriguez were able to swarm all over the final third of the pitch (right), while in contrast Aston Villa's front three of Jordan Ayew, Leandro Bacuna and SScott Sinclair were confined to much deeper positions.

For Southampton, Jay Rodriguez makes his first start in seven months. He's one of four changes from the side that drew 1-1 at Everton. Cedric, Oriol Romeu and Steven Davis also come in. Out go Cuco Martina, Jordy Clasie, Sadio Mane and Graziano Pelle.  

'Great to see Iheanacho'

Man City 4-0 Stoke

Ruud Gullit

Former Chelsea manager

"Most teams in the top five don't have time for young players to get in, they need instant success. So it's great to see Kelechi Iheanacho playing for Manchester City."

'Iheanacho is a great story for the City Academy'

Man City 4-0 Stoke

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender on Match of the Day

"12 goals Stoke have conceded in three matches. They gave City a huge leg up to City with the first goal. I would have had men on the post. 

"Ryan Shawcross is a good player in the Premier League but he is too slow for England. He gave away the penalty and he dropped off for the third and allowed Kelechi Iheanacho to score.

"It is a shame for Stoke as they have let go of the basics.

"You talk about young strikers like Marcus Rashford...  Iheanacho is a great story for the City Academy."

'Recurring theme'

Man City 4-0 Stoke

.
.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes' reaction says it all.

"Once again we have conceded poor goals, which is a recurring theme," he said after seeing his side let in four goals for the third straight league match.

"We were a million miles away from where we need to be in the first half. We are lacking the pace and power you need in key areas of the field."

'Important to rotate'

Man City 4-0 Stoke

.
.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini: "A big team must always be focused on both competitions. Premier League and Champions League. Every big team must do it every year.

"Stoke is fighting for nothing but nobody wants to lose games. It was important to score the first goal.

"We play eight games in 30 days so it's very important to have some rotations.

"Yaya [Toure], maybe the doctor will see him tomorrow. He finished with a muscle injury. "For Vincent [Kompany], it was a risk to play two games in 72 hours. It was better for him not to take a risk. He is okay, he worked this morning."

Man of the Match - Kelechi Iheanacho

Man City 4-0 Stoke

The biggest roar of the game came five minutes from time, when Kelechi Iheanacho was announced as man of the match.

Just as neighbours United have an exciting young forward in Marcus Rashford, so do Manchester City in the shape of the young Nigeria international, who has had a hand in 11 goals (seven goals, four assists) in eight competitive starts in 2015/16.

He proved a real handful once again, his pace and power causing Stoke all sorts of problems. Took both goals well, particularly his second. A terrific prospect.
