Chelsea vs Swansea: Latest Team News | Expected Line-Ups | Match Prediction
Chelsea take on Swansea at Stamford Bridge this evening. Here is our preview including team news, line-up and prediction
Chelsea will be looking to keep the pressure on the top two when they take on Swansea City at Stamford Bridge this evening.
The Blues head in to the game sitting third in the Premier League table after Willian came off the bench to rescue a late 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
There is only three points separating Chelsea from sixth-placed Liverpool so it’s important they win tonight but Antonio Conte is also still eyeing those above them in the table.
Manchester United moved six points clear in second with a win at Watford last night while Man City are currently 11 points ahead so Chelsea have some work to do to catch up.
Swansea arrive in west London in serious trouble as they sit level on points with Crystal Palace at the bottom of the table following a 0-0 draw with Bournemouth last time out so they are desperate for a positive result tonight.
Chelsea will be without David Luiz as the centre-back is out with a knee injury but Victor Moses is back in contention after recovering from a hamstring injury that kept him out for eight games.
Michy Batshuayi is still out with an ankle injury while Charly Musonda and Kenedy are also unavailable.
Swansea are without Tammy Abraham as the striker can’t play against his parent club while Federico Fernandez is away on compassionate leave following the death of his father.
Chelsea 3-0 Swansea: The Blues are on a fine run of form having taken 13 points from the last 15 while Swansea are winless in their last six games so this looks like a home banker. I can see Chelsea easing to a routine 3-0 win this evening.
