Chelsea Left-Back Nathan Ake Enjoys Trip Down Memory Lane With Former Teammates at Vitality Stadium

​Chelsea left-back Nathan Ake spent his Sunday meeting up with former Bournemouth teammates after the Blues brushed aside the Cherries in a 3-1 win at the Vitality Stadium.

The 22-year-old was on loan at Bournemouth for the first-half of this season, earning plaudits for typically pacy left-sided performances.

​But his loan on the south-coast was cut short by his parent club Chelsea, who recalled him in January.

However, Ake's return to Stamford Bridge hasn't gone as fluidly as hoped, with the youngster only making two appearances since his return, both in the FA Cup.

He clearly relished returning to Bournemouth over the weekend, staying the night on the south-coast after attending ex-teammate  Brad Smith's birthday party.

Ake posted a series of pictures  ​on social media  of himself meeting up with Smith, as well as Benik Afobe and Joshua King.

The result maintains Chelsea's lead at the top of the table at seven points, Bournemouth meanwhile slip down to 15th, seven points above the relegation zone.
