Frank Lampard will be expecting his side to respond quickly from the Champions League defeat and look to work on their domestic form following last week’s win against Tottenham Hotspur.
Chelsea are strong favourites to get all three points in Dorset with thepools.com having them down at 3/4 to win.
Head coach Lampard will be looking for his side to respond at the first time of asking after losing to Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16.
Lampard said: “Well the response will be what we see tomorrow. The lads are fine in training, they looked determined this morning.
“Things like this happen in football, there are moments, there are games where it’s a tough match, a tough game, and that opens your eyes somewhat.
“And then the tester then is how you come back from that, individually and collectively.
“So I’m interested to see the reaction, it feels it will be good, the determination in training is there to see.
“Our last Premier League performance was very, very good, so we have to carry on from that.”
