The Blues host Premier League strugglers Swansea City at the Bridge tonight in the hope of gaining nothing but three points.
Chelsea are in great form ahead of tonight’s game, having taken 13 points from a possible 15, their only slip up being a 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Saturday evening.
The Welsh side sit second from bottom of the Premier League table. Their 0-0 draw against Bournemouth ended a run of five straight defeats in all competitions for Paul Clement’s side but they remain in the relegation zone.
David Luiz is out with a knee injury, Victor Moses could start, while striker Michy Batshuayi (ankle), forward Charly Musonda (knee) and the left-sided Kenedy (undisclosed) are out.
Swansea City are without their star striker and one of our own, Tammy Abraham, as the on-loan Chelsea striker cannot play against his parent club.
MATCH FACTS (BBC)
- Chelsea have won seven and lost just one of their 12 Premier League meetings with Swansea.
- The Blues have claimed only five points from their last four top-flight games against the Swans, winning just one of them.
- Swansea have conceded two or more goals in five of their six Premier League visits to Chelsea.
- The Swans’ last league win at Stamford Bridge came in November 1925. They won 3-1 under their former name Swansea Town.
Nothing but a win is perfect for us tonight, 3 points is absolutely crucial in the hope of regaining the title this season.
