​Bournemouth star Ake excited for Chelsea return

Bournemouth star Nathan Ake is delighted that he will get a chance to face his former club in the Premier League.

The Cherries are traveling to Stamford Bridge for a key Premier League game.

It is a fixture they won 3-0 last season, when Chelsea were at a very low point.

The coming game may be a very different one, with the Blues having nine points from nine in the first three games.

And Ake is delighted to be going back.

"It's nice to go back. To see all the staff and players at the Bridge will be good but once the whistle goes, I am a Bournemouth player," he said to the Daily Echo.

"This season is a new season and, maybe with more expectations now, it's a bit more pressure. So far it's been okay and we just have to keep going."
