Glenn Murray’s late header gave Bournemouth a famous win at Stamford Bridge and added to the pressure on Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho. The 82nd-minute goal, scored after Chelsea failed to clear a corner, moves Eddie Howe’s side up to 17th place.
It also makes them the first promoted side to beat Chelsea at home since Charlton in April 2001.
But it leaves the defending champions in 14th place, 14 points adrift of the Champions League places.
Jose Mourinho while reacting to the match said “The result is not fair. In the first half we were soft and did not press and were not aggressive and were not intense. In the second half everything changed. We were aggressive, created chances and had crosses and a clear penalty that the referee did not see. That is the game.
“In the moment when our opponent were thinking just about defending a clean sheet they cross the halfway line for the first time and scored. If it was offside it is another episode that goes against us, but I did not see it.”
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe praised his boys for the solid display “It was really emotional in the dressing room afterwards. I’m so proud of them.
“We defended so well, put our bodies on the line and didn’t succumb to the pressure. We hung in there and that was crucial. We’ve talked all season about trying to score more goals from corner and free kicks and it happened today.”
