Only 2 players are replaced after the massacre
Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud celebrated after breaking into Tottenham Hotspur's goal at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea underwent one of their worst matches.In the first leg of the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday (2/25/2020) at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea were slaughtered by Bayern Munich 0-3.

The result was Chelsea's biggest home defeat in the Champions League.

Some players performed poorly with Chelsea only holding 37% of the ball.

However, the slaughter at Stamford Bridge did not necessarily make Chelsea coach Frank Lampard completely overhaul the starting line-up in the next match.

Saturday (2/29/2020) at Vitality Stadium, Chelsea visited Bournemouth's home in the 28th week of the English League.

Only 2 of the 11 starters against Bayern Munich were replaced by Lampard to face Bournemouth.

Antonio Ruediger was replaced by Fikayo Tomori and Pedro replaced Ross Barkley.

The duo of midfielders Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic will be retained.

Likewise Olivier Giroud, who is now a starter for the third time in a row in his last three appearances in all competitions.
